Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

  quick FO fix
Things have been really stressful for me lately (don't even get me started. . .) but let me tell you, chunky wool on wooden circulars is perfect zen knitting. i can even do it while i read for school! this is what i whipped up tonight:Yarn: Lion Brand Lanscapes, color #227/country sunset. Needles: US size 13 16" clover bamboo circulars, then US 13 Brittany dpns. Pattern: basic, off-the-top-of-my-head roll brim recipe. CO 48 stitches, knit for a goodly amount, then start decreasing every 8 stitches (then 7, then 6, etc.) I swear it looks cuter in real life. any one else fed up with this lack of natural light to take good knitting pictures??

also, the swallowtail has been done for over a week! i'm holding out until i can get a picture that does her justice. no crappy bathroom pics for the swallowtail!


Cute hat! Looks great on you - natural light or no. Looking forward to seeing your Swallowtail - it's on my list of things to knit.
