So I opened an Etsy shop.
...And made a sale less than 24 hours later! I'm absolutely thrilled.

Here it is, brand-spankin' new:

(BTW, the scarf in there now is what I did instead of go to or watch the UK/U of L game. Which we won, and which was apparently a very, very big deal. Sacrifices...)

Hey, does anybody remember this long-retired flourescent red blob?

It's all right if you don't. It was a vest with a lot of princess-sleeved potential. However, I accidentally lost my ability to count and made one sleeve to mammoth dimensions. By that point I was so frustrated by the scratchiness of the yarn (it was free...and an excellent color) that I kind of pretended that the sweater itself never existed.

Anyway, here are my plans as far as that goes. Rip off the sleeves. Rip off the droopy neckline where I picked up too many stitches. Leave it as a vest.

And in the meantime....

Recreate the whole experience in cotton.

If I'm lucky, I'll have two twin FO's to show next time.
And a pattern.
