Some knitting as of late. Warning: mass pictoral purge!

This scarf is for sale at my etsy.

And meanwhile, I've been selling a great deal of quick little hats and such. For example,

Currently, the favored project is fingerless gloves. Quick yet delicate.

Some of the Christmas knitting that's been going on:

Hung with care.

& how to know that you're absolutely out of your mind, or just that finals week is the best time for productive procrastination. Two days, bitch:

Work in progress.

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.

I finished the hat. It was a surprisingly quick knit, considering that US 5 is one of the smallest sets of needles I really use. (I'm not exactly your most patient knitter.)

Luckily it isn't for me, because I look so, so stupid in hats, but here it is on anyway:

Also--I visited my new LYS. It was kind of a big deal. Five skeins of Blue Sky Cotton later, I'm already trucking through a new short-sleeve sweater.

All right, so it's been quite a bit of time since my last post, but that was because I was getting ready to go to college. Which I did.
Here's my cute dorm stash:

There's actually a LYS right across the street from where I live. Literally, right across the street. I haven't checked it out yet because I only just moved in, but it's a priority.

So, I'm basically just getting settled now. All I've got in the way of projects is a rayon hat. Here it is in the only non-cluttered corner of my desk:

Now I'd like to take one shameless moment to blatantly show off the macro setting on my new camera.
