The cute booties were mailed and Sparky’s co-worker loved them.  Yay!

The basket of project kits has been a great success.  When I ran out of yarn on the green vest I quickly picked up another project.  I also found a better pattern for one of the projects and was able to quickly match it with the yarn.

So, I ran out of yarn.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to get any locally so I turned to the internets.  First I checked with an acquaintance from high school who now owns a ginormous yarn shop (Threadbear Yarn Studio) in Michigan.  It’s not one that they stock.  Second I turned to Ravelry and found someone who had two skeins in their stash.  I contacted her and asked if she’d be willing to sell me hers.  Through the magic of PayPal she had her money right away and she popped them into the mail.  Yay!  I worked it some more and then realized it just wasn’t going to work. sigh.  I was using much smaller needles, which made the fabric very dense and *heavy*.  I tried it on and it just didn’t fit right.  Too big under the arms and just heavy.  So it has been frogged and I started on green vest pattern number three.  This time from French Girl Knits.  There is some arrowhead cabling so we’ll see how it looks with the variegated yarn.

In the meantime, I started the ShimaJima t-shirt for the Sparkle Girl.  It’s a fun pattern and worked up pretty quickly.  Here are some pics:

This knit up pretty quickly.  It’s in the round from the bottom up (no seams!).  Put the sleeves on a provisional cast on and then work the neck and shoulders with short rows.  I had to redo the top a few times–user error every time.  My first mistake was in not reviewing how to lift the wrap on short rows.  It looked terrible, so it was ripped and restarted.  Then I was knitting while way too tired and totally lost track of where I was.  So ripped again.  I can’t really remember what the last problem was, but I’m sure it was my fault yet again.

Once I was finished I really like the way it looks!  I love how the purled stripes up the sides come in to at the top.  The shoulder shaping is genius~  It fits her perfectly and will probably fit for quite a while.  I love the green cotton/silk of the yarn too.

So now I’m back to the green vest.  I seriously hope I’ll be able to finish it before next Winter.

I’m still contemplating how I’m going to do the stocking for my friend Steve.  The first pattern just did not work out.  I’ve got something in mind but am not ready to commit it to needles yet.
