Handspun single

This is from a while ago, but I never posted any pics. I haven't decided what to do with it yet.

Blocking Bodice

All the knitting is done. I only had 5 inches of yarn left! It was so close. Carrying the sequins along while knitting was too much of a pain so I plan to sew some more on once it's dry. I adore this pattern. I love how the sweater looks. I omitted the purl ridges on the body and replaced them on the neckline and bottom edges with seed stitch. I made the medium size, but did some extra rows before connecting the v neck to accommodate my chest. I used knit picks andean silk which I now love and can't wait to use again. I've heard some people say it was too scratchy, but it's not for me.

Baby Jeans!

I made the blu pattern from knitty. They are so cute. I just need to weave in a few ends and sew in the elastic. Then I've got to quickly get them to my friend's little girl before she grows any more and they don't fit!
