Finished Objects and In Progress

The results of my recent bout of knitting obsession. All of the projects are in ravelry, too.

A fair isle sweater
The black shrug in alpaca cloud. At some point I'll model it for a photo.

A bib. I adjusted it so I could do an i-cord instead of a button band. I'm very happy with the results. And I finished it about 90 minutes before the shower I was taking it to. :-)

The fishy toy from Knitted Toys by Zoe Moeller. The i-cord in between the fish was all me. I didn't want to do beads.The February Baby Sweater by Elizabeth Zimmerman. I found the adorable buttons at Knit One. The yarn is Baby Cashmerino.

The stripy ball, also from Knitted Toys, in progress. I'm using the intarsia techniques I used in Lucy Neatby's class. See my lovely yarn butterflies?! Yarn is Encore and Laines Du Nord from stash.

The swatch I made in my intarsia class. I haven't woven in my ends or done more rows than what I finished in class. And obviously it isn't blocked.

Talk about eye candy! So many beautiful things Amy.
1. Purple and white. Shocking color choice, and your fair isle looks wonderful. I must try fair isle...
2. Hey, I know that yarn. Looking good!
3. Clever, clever, clever. Love the i-cord!
4. Adorable fishies!
5. Have you started one to match for yourself yet?!?!
5. All those butterflies remind me of knitting Mo's Steeler Sweater. I hope you have a better technique of keeping away the tangles!

That fair isle is very impressive! If you work on it at the K&S I may be looking over your shoulder. :)

OH my goodness! Can you teach me how to do that? I would love to know how to make some bibs (they seem fairly simple enough) and maybe graduate to some toys. Is there a good site to look at for stuff like that? You are amazing!
