More earrings

I finished my classes today, got my study abroad application in, and am generaly in a good mood.

So therefore, I made earrings.

Arabesque Earrings

Based, of course, on earrings sold at Anthropologie. Not perfect, but I like how they turned out.

Double-Breasted Cardigan

Just finished the Double-Breasted Cardigan (Pattern #6) from Fall 2006 VK. I'm very happy with the results, and it looks great on my tiny tiny friend. Hopefully will be able to get a picture of her in it and post it so you guys can see it on something other than a couch.

In the meantime, here's the finishing shot:

Double-Breasted Cardigan Pattern #6 from Fall 2006 Vogue Knitting, Size Small
Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Winter Night, 11 skeins, minus a few yards.

Print O' The Wave

Though I'd post my progress so far on the Print o' the Wave. I've run into a few hiccups every now and then (usually forgetting a YO once or twice), but I think it's turning out rather nicely, so far. Except I just remembered that I lost a YO and made a huge hole on the edge. Oh bother.

Sea Silk!

So I've been posting this wherever my fancy takes me, but I just ordered a new skein of Handmaiden Sea Silk in Straw. I haven't gotten it yet, but it looks gorgeous and obviously photographs well. And it looks like spun gold.

But I haven't decided what to do with it yet. Others have been getting entire flower basket shawls out of it, and I'm wondering if there would be enough in one skein to make the Folding Fan Tank that I patterned out in part earlier in my blog. No, I don't think so, either. But it would be beautiful. Maybe I could pull off a similar design with more open lace and less ribbing to take up less yarn...
