Project Updates!

Well I've been a knitting fool lately. Guess it makes sense since I have no life outside school and work these days!!!

I finished my first Tulip Sweater and its GORGEOUS! Can't wait to give this baby away! I made the 12-18 month size, and used the originally recommended colors of Dream In Color Classy for this one. Will start to experiment with other colors for the next one.

I also finished my Tilted Duster finally, just need to figure out where I put the buttons I bought and sew those on. I used the recommended Berocco Peruvia for this, only took 7 skeins rather than the recommended 8. Did make the skirt a tiny bit shorter than it should be, but it still grazes the bottom of my bottom so I think its perfect. Came out a little big overall thanks to my continued weight loss, but I think it will be a warm cozy jacket. Mom is hoping I give it to her. We'll see....

And finally, my newest piece..The Scotty Vest from Dream In Color Designs. The first of its pattern on ravelry, outside the original by the designer that is! This is using Dream in Color's bulky weight yarn, Fatty. Was a super fast knit thanks to the bulk yarn, and I'm more and more in love with the feels and colorways from Dream in Color the more I work with it. I think my whole stash will soon be overrun with nothing but DIC!
