New and Exciting?

Here's what I've been up to in the land of all that is crafty...

Finished Ballet Sweater

This sweater was a commission order for a friend and I was uber pleased with the results. I even took the time to look up proper seaming techniques and the results were so sweet!  My Little Bird immediately requested one for herself.  =)  Let the Christmas Knitting begin...

Ballerina Bear

Part of the same commission order... I loved knitting this bear, but hated the seaming and piecing, there has got to be an easier way! Worth all the effort though. =)  Pattern available in this book.

Finished!

My first color work socks as part of a KAL on Rav (pattern link).  Not as fiddly as I thought they'd be, and I really love how they turned out. The top looks loose and ill fitting, but they really are quite comfy. I think there will be more color work in my future. =)

Mystery Socks!

These were such a pleasure to knit! This pattern is another mystery sock pattern and I just loved it... it really kept my interest and the finished pair looks great. I may just knit this pattern again.

So, I know it's not much, but that's it for now... moving has really taken up a lot of my time lately. =/

Craft on All!


PS
The Small Boy and I are participating in the local Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Walk to support one of our friends.  While I've already met my fund raising goal, this is one instance where less is definitely not more!  So I'm holding a raffle...  for every $10 you donate to my page, I'll enter your name into a drawing for a pair of custom hand knit socks.  The link is above, and if you donate please be sure to leave your name and some sort of contact info (email is good) so I can get in touch with you.
