My last blog entry described these two projects, but now I got pictures of them finally. Thanks mom for letting me borrow the camera (I'm visiting my hometown for a couple days.)
The sweater is the seamless hybrid by Elizabeth Zimmermann per Jared Flood's suggestions. (He describes a wonderfully clever method for adding a contrast colored hem.) It's going great and coming along super fast. I only started it last Wednesday and I already have one sleeve almost done, and a little more than half of the torso. I love the Berroco Ultra Alpaca that I'm knitting it in. I love the St stitch in the round; it's delightfully boring and positively relaxing.
The bag is a free pattern on ravelry. It's called "Quinn" and I substituted seed stitch for the crazy cabling on the body of the bag per the way that "Sknitty" knit it. I made it for my friends 21st birthday (May 20th).
I'm getting more and more obsessed with knitting every day.
