I'm not truly sure! April is shooting past and it's almost done and dash it, if I haven't really finshed anything except for the skirt for instar......
Yes, I knit a skirt for a swap! :D She loved it and is hoping for warmer weather.
In return she sent me the lovely handspun with beads that I posted previously.
I don't actually have a full picture of it.......... I have the shots I took in process, but no FO shot! Dang! I am trying to find the image, but photobucket is being a pain..... oh....there we go. This is basically the lace begining, as you can see. There is about 12cm of ribbing at the top, and 12 cm of straight stocking knit, then I began the lace. As I didn't want to have a fit issue, I crochet a simple loop line on the top of the skirt and gave her three ties... an i-cord in the same cotton, a black ribbon, and I think I added a spool of "cherries" ribbon as well.
I knit it in Eco-fil a 75% cotton, 25% acrylic recycled blend that you can find here in Canada at the WM.
So my Buttony sweater is sitting in my lap, each side has about half a sleeve. SO CLOSE TO BEING DONE IT HURTS!!! I will finish it tonight so that I can move on to other sweaters for the KAL. I WILL!
I really want to post some pics for you too........ahhhhhhh finally!
So....... I did some creative painting for a sweater in another swap........ I loved the idea that she loved robots..... so I had some fun!
A detail of the Big guy on the back! All the "white" paint you see is really "glow-in-the-dark" LOL, she said that someone thought she had glue on her sweater at school and tried to pick it off! Yikes!
This is the right sleeve, she is right handed, and a front pocket. I have no idea what is wrong with the bottom of the pic, but oh well! I had fun with it and I think that I may have to make one for me! I like robots too! LOL
Comments? thoughts? Hope the weekend is treating you well!
