More FO's

After knitting I don't know how many hearts for World Aids Day, I felt it was time for something a little less ... twee.

One (I think) anatomically correct heart.  Why?  Just because.

I've also finished a top-down sleeveless cardi (minus buttons for now - I have some, I just hate sewing them on.)  My photos of the cardi suck, but I'm reeeeeeallllly pleased with how it turned out.  I changed the sleeve edges slightly.  The pattern tells you to just cast them off when you reach them, but I put the stitches on holders instead, then came back & worked the same garter st border as for the bottom edge.

Lower right detail.
My next project?  I'm working on a skirt!  You can see it in progress hiding behind the heart.  It's knitted on the bias, so hopefully it won't hold the shape of my rear end after I've been sitting for a bit!!

  1. Love the heart! and the cardi looks like a great versatile piece--maybe not for this time of year where you live:)
