Somebody Stop Me

First FO 2008 - and it didn't take freakin' forever to make!

Mr. Greenjeans - started November 2007, finished January 2, 2008. It would have been a quicker knit but it got set aside in favor of the stealth cashmere projoect.


I used Malabrigo worsted in Stonechat. Love, love love this yarn! And it's a nice pattern too - super quick knit and really easy. The only alteration I made was to adjust for length. Because I'm so freakin' tall and all.























I also made a couple of quick projects in December:

Warshrag - all of ours are looking pretty ratty, so I decided to pretty things up a bit in the kitchen. This is just Peaches and Creme (or something like that) pulled from stash - standard cotton in the ballband pattern. Easy, easy. I need to make some more.





Fetchings for me. Made from stash yarn - a single ball of worsted weight from KnitPicks. For those freezing CA mornings.

Now, back to the beaded lace - I promised this would be done by Stitches West!






















ETA: Why, oh why does Blogger insist on screwing up picture and text spacing? I'm no designer but good god, I'm better than this!

Officially jealous. When did you find the time to knit during the holidays? I need a vacation!

Greenjeans (or reddish jeans) looks fabulous!

You are in OVERDRIVE, baby! Greenjeans looks great on you & such a snuggly yarn - an excellent choice for you. For the breaking thing -- try some $br clear ="all"$ action (replace $ with < or > as needed) or DIV tags
