Moving…

Posted by allie on August 19, 2007

That’s right, this week I finally move into my dorm. I’ve been packing frantically this week and have only daily items left to pack. Despite all the packing, I’ve still been knitting… and sewing! Here’s my most recent sewing project:

Pattern: Artist’s Organizer from Simple Sewing with a French Twist

Fabric: Green decor fabric and cotton quilting material, both from JoAnn’s

Started: August 18, 2007/ Finished: August 19, 2007

Thoughts: I love it and can’t wait to hang it from my loft bed! I will take some pics of the dorm once I’m settled and it’s decorated to my liking.

Noro Hats

Two birthday presents are done!

Cast-on: August 11, 2007/ Finished: August 19, 2007, although I do still need to weave in some ends.

Pattern: Noro Hat by Saartje de Brujin

Yarn: Noro Kureyon

Needles: US 7 24″ circ and US 7 dpns

Mods: Mostly I just made the hats a little smaller. The purple one is smaller than the blue-green one as well, since it’s for a girl.

Another FO that was nearly finished, but was abandoned due to lack of interest.

Cast-on: May 1, 2007/ Finished: August 15, 2007

Pattern: Daffodil Dishcloth (May Monthly Dishcloth Group Pattern)

Yarn: Yellow Sugar n Cream

Needles: US 7 Knitpicks Options

That’s all for now, but after moving in Wednesday, I’ll try to post pics of the dorm room and my knitting getting settled in its new home.

Halfway There

Posted by allie on August 14, 2007

My First Jaywalker!

I love it! The fit is perfect and I absolutely love the colors. I’m also including the sock as a Project Spectrum project since purple ties all of the colors together!

Noro Hat

I LOVE Noro!! I love to watch the stripes change. Although, I am a little miffed that there was a knot before I was even half-way done with the 1st skein. I’ve worked it all out, but it’s taken a bit of effort to work it all out.

UFO Resurrection: Om Yoga Mat Bag from SnB Nation

This bag has been hibernating on Ravelry for way too long.

This is Sugar n Cream knit up in a simple lace mesh pattern. I hope to finish this pattern before moving out next week because I need somewhere to put my yoga mat bag!

Moving has been my life right now. I’m packing books and yarn to take with me, and it’s hard to decide what projects will have to be abandoned for the time being.

Simple Knits

Posted by allie on August 11, 2007

First of all, new yarn. Mmm… Noro. I bought two skeins of each color to make this Noro Hat for two friends’ upcoming birthdays.

Jaywalker Update

That’s right, it’s almost done.
