Vortex Street Refashion

Remember the Vortex Street sweater refashion project? I finally sat down and finished it last month. It only took 6 months to sew the scarf panel to the sweater body. ;-)

I posted a picture-rich entry of all the steps (and false starts) in the refashion. You can also see the very beginning of the project and read about vortex streets, as seen from space.

Another Shell Tank

I've finished my shell tank a few weeks ago but I've forgotten to post it here at the knitalong.
I made little modifications according to my personal measurements because I needed the tank a little longer and didn't want the swing shape like Norah designed the tank. So what above looks like somewhat waistshaping is really nothing but straight edgings as you can see in the next picture. I am totally satisfied with this tank because it fits to my shapes very well and the pointed hem flatters the figure. I didn't admit that I would like such an asymmetrical garment so much because I normally love symmetry. So sometimes one had to try something else, he? This tank make heads turn, that's true!

bubble sweater!

I finally finished my bubble pullover: between being a graduate student in 4 classes and working 16 hours a week, not to mention still trying to be on a sports team, it took me nearly 6 months. but it's done! the photo isn't phenomenal, and i'll try to get another one up soon... but i'm pretty happy. though i think it makes my mid-section look rather short because of the two colors.

Vortex Street

I found this moth-eaten cashmere sweater at Goodwill (a thrift store). It was too nice to trash so I decided to refashion it with a scarf collar a la Norah's Cabled Cardigan from the Fall 2006 Issue of Vogue Knitting.

Cowl pullover - finished

Hitting the Target

I finished a pair of the Target Wave mittens. I like them enough although their shape is kind of weird. 1 skein of the Goddess Phoebe was not enough, so I had to reverse the colors. More comments and details on my blog.

So which pattern to do next......
