Whats new pussy cat?

The kitty hat of course! I'm working the pattern from in Lion Brand worsted weight Wool Ease. I already knit a first one up, but made a mistake in the moss stitch and got impatient and completely fucked up the decreases on the top. Rather than frog it, I decided to leave it for now and start a new one. For once I actually bought enough yarn! Pictures soon to come...

Kermit Sweater

I've finished completing all the pieces of the kermit sweater, so named because of the lovely shade of green I made it out of. I had never completed a sweater before this project, so this turned out to be a great turned out to be a great tutorial on garment knitting. Its a pattern from The Yarn Girls Guide to Simple Knits and its knit on huuuge needles (size 19!). Right now, all I have are some poor quality pictures but I promise to post better pictures when I get them.

This one shows the shape of all the pieces:

After working with this site some more, I think I've decided to switch my blog over to this site. It seems to be a bit more complicated, but I think there is alot more freedom and I like the format better. I'm going to be working on changing over here, so keep looking for new posts!

I've had a blog on, but just recently came upon this site and decided to try it out. I liked the look of the blogs coming from here a bit better. Anyways, this is my first post, hopefully I'll be able to decide which is better and really take off.
