In the Making ...

Summer is never knitting time for me, I have not really touched needles since June... I started couple of projects this (almost last) year and it all ended in the basket for the summer, waiting for the right time, i.e. (outside temperature) fall:)
I finished (and never wore yet) this lacy pullover, made of very soft sugar cane fibers yarn; I got it last year in little knitting store in Hanalei(in our beloved Kauai). I made up my own design, simple raglan with v-neck and lacy wide borders. The yarn got very soft after washing...and also very stretchy, we shall see how it will behave being worn.

I also made another version of EZ swing jacket (second one in row in adult size, and I made a bunch of tiny ones for babies) in warm reddish tones from hand dyed alpaca and silk, it went to my mom as x-mass present.

This kimono one is mine (will never again make two same-pattern projects in row, it gets very boring second time around).

To make my fitting life easier, I got the giant doll (dressmaker's one) of my size to play with and I have soooo much fun with it... it is amazing how different (mostly better) everything looks when I can see it from "outside", but it is still couple inches bigger size than I would wish for, oh well :)

And, here is piece I will probably never wear, it is way too girly for me, it was just fun to make, I love lace patterns.
