I have been knitting up a storm lately. I realized I had about 9 knitting projects on the go so I have been striving to finish at least some of them. The first project to cross off my list was this charming cabled sweater. It doesn't really look anything like the pattern, which was accidental rather than planned, but I am very happy with the result. I am dying for colder weather so I can wear this baby out. It's 100% wool with 6 vintage buttons (and one new metal button).
This next sweater I actually finished ages ago but never got around to photographing. It's from a free 1950's "evening sweater" pattern. It was suppose to have an off-the-shoulder knitted piece but after trying it I decided to remove it and add a piece of taffeta ribbon. I have yet to find an excuse to wear this top. Maybe a Christmas party later this year?
And finally a knitting flop. I designed this 1920's style dress a couple years ago but it took me ages to actually get it sewn up. It was originally going to have ruffles but I never finished them. I'll admit it looks cute on the hanger but it looks extremely terrible on. I may wear it was a warm slip in the winter, or just frog the entire thing and resuse the yarn.
I still have quite a few projects in the works. I'm most excited about a 1930's sweater. I'm altering the original pattern quite a bit but it will hopefully look amazing when finished. It might take quite a while though. It's going to look roughly like this:
