I've Started A Vest (Work-in-Progress Wednesday)

Alright, so, today I'm participating in 'Work-in-Progress Wednesdays' over at Tami's Amis and Other Crochet. I saw it on Ravelry and decided to give it a try. (: Hopefully it's fine that I just started this project.

This is the vest I started yesterday(Ravelry link). I love the lace! The whole vest looks like it's going to be amazing. I hope everything works out like it's supposed to, haha.

I finished the first lace repeat last night, did the second one this afternoon, and have now started on doing the stockinette. Check out my Ravelry page for it (you'll need an account to look at it).

 This is what it looked like after I finished the first lace repeat last night.

How far I am now.

I love the way it looks.  Erin from 'Today I Made' designs beautiful (not to mention easy) patterns. I hope to make her Emily Hat soon-ish. But, of course, I need the right length needles. Oii. There's always something...Haha.

 I also finished my other brother's hat a couple of days ago (or was it yesterday?...Who knows).

A New Layout, And Pictures

Hey there everyone.

Like the new layout? It's a bit more easier to read now, and, it's green. You can never go wrong with green! (;

But, anyway.

I bring pictures of my new yarn stash. Well, I guess it's not exactly a new stash of yarn...But it is newly arranged.

Baby/Solids (there's some yarn that's missing from the pic)




And I've also got several other skeins that need to be rolled up into balls. It's gonna take awhile, haha.

I also knitted a black-and-gray-striped-beanie for my brother, which I don't have pics of because I doubt he would be willing to pose for one, and I'm rather afraid to ask. (: I've already started to knit another black-and-gray-but-not-as-dark-of-a-gray-striped-beanie for my other brother. They're really quick and easy to make, so it'll probably be finished sometime tomorrow.

I'm Bad At This.

What's happened to me? I was actually doing kinda good in March (a total of 11 posts) and now...I fail. Haha. Guess it's 'cause I haven't been doing much crafting lately. I don't know why; I haven't been really busy or anything. However, I did get back into the crafting spirit a couple of days ago. Who knows how long it'll last, though...

But, enough of that. I'll try to blog more.

I finished that skinny scarf I was making. It's kinda short, but I'm beginning to think I like those kind of scarves; short, and skinny. Doesn't keep you very warm, but it works good on those kinda-cold-but-not-really days. Plus, you can use 'em as sashes/belts!

Sorry for the messy background, haha.

Oh, and I made the second glove for my mom:


Sorry for the bad quality. They're actually more purple than that in real-life, haha.

Here's some pics of that baby blanket I'm working on:

That's a 12" ruler.

So, yeah. I also found more room for all my yarn, but hopefully I'll post pictures of that later.
