I think I just completed a perfect shawl for transitioning into winter, and though this one is for my sister, I might want to make one for myself. 😉 I even want to use the same color, because it's so bright and cheerful and gorgeous! Since this is a rectangular shawl, I designed it to … Continue reading Fall Shawl
I guess it was too much to hope that I'd complete this project last year, but it's finally ready. Well, almost ready, since I feel the sweater could do with more buttons but we've not ordered any.

Can you believe it, my mom's blouse is ready! I think this is the quickest I've ever produced a garment. 🙂 While the knit itself was pretty boring because (a) simple pattern and (b) this project occupied every free moment I had, I'm satisfied with how it turned out. The texture is just awesome! I … Continue reading Textured Blouse
