First Sweater

I have been lurking around this site for a while now. Have just started my first sweater and decided it was time to post. Past knitting has consisted of socks, hats, cowls and scarfs. All projects that are relatively quick to knit up.

Annie's tank

Well my first venture into womens couture is finally complete. It was a nice easy knit - one of those really relaxing projects. This is for my friend Annie for her b-day the end of November. Hopefully she'll like it and let me take a few shots of her in it. I wish her birthday weren't so far off. It was knit in Classic Elite's Firefly, size 3 needles.

Fall colours

Early this summer, when looking through a thrift shop, I located a large bag with three large balls of yarn in it. Upon investigation, I noticed it was a kit for an afghan that someone had begun, and never got to finish. Everything was there: the yarn, instructions, cable needle still in the stitches. The price was right, so what else could I do but buy it.

OT But Really Cool!

Hey guys! So I've mentioned before that I'm an actor, and even posted a little while ago about my upcoming show (That's Not Right... A Mistaken Cabaret). I wanted to share this with you, though, cause it's really cool- my amazing boyfriend is a graphic designer (a really awesome one, you should check him out: and he offered to do this unbelievable poster for me.

Knit for Africa

It's been a very long time since I last posted something on this site, but I'm still knitting away no matter what. In fact I have join a army of women (and men) who are knitting for charity. 'The Fish n' Chip Babies in Africa' is a good cause: Every day babies are born into extreme poverty in Africa.
