It's Not February Yet, but...

i finished my february lady sweater!  i swear this pattern, whether lady, baby or girlie, flies right off the needles.

i used some gorgeous "road to china" in jade.  this yarn was just fabulous to work with - it is from brooklyn general - i know, big surprise - huge...  the buttons are a vintage pink, also from brooklyn general - but they are a little too small.  i love them though, so i am going to use them until i find the perfect buttons.  the only modification i made was to do regular increases instead of the eyelet row.  you can get all the specs on ravelry - plus a more color accurate picture.

last week, i also whipped up this quick scarf for my sister's mother-in-law's 60th birthday.  

i did a half herringbone faggoting stitch out of tess cult yarn (also fabulous and from brooklyn general). all the details are here.  the good news is i think she loved it and she doesn't tend to like too many presents.

right now, i am working on a pretty heavily modified boheme by allegra wermuth.  i changed the lace pattern, the technique for the increases and will add a little flutter sleeve.

the picture does not do the color or the yarn any justice - hopefully it will warm up one of these days and i can get some better pictures...i have some great handspun that matches the yarn really nicely - so trying to figure out how to use.  here it is on ravelry.
