some works in progress

It snowed again today...low tonight in the 20's, but I'm trying to remain positive. If I can't have spring outside, at least I can have some inside. WalMart had little pots of tulips and hyacinths this week for less than $2. I bought a hyacinth and repotted it in a clay pot I painted white. I think I'll have to pick up a few more of these...

The good thing is, being stuck inside gives me plenty of opportunity to finish up some projects. Like the tunic, which is almost done ...

And this new pattern I picked up this week. Sooner or later summer will arrive and I really would like some new summer tops. This is New Look 6515, almost exactly like a top I saw in the Anthropologie catalog, and I'm making the sleeveless version...

And the short-sleeved sweater...I knit a little every night and it's almost done. I'm debating about the neckline, since I found another Jenny Adorno pattern (Tempting II) with one that is slightly different...

So after my daily painting is done in the kitchen, this is what I will be happily working on...cozy by the woodstove, watching the snowflakes, and (still) dreaming of spring.

  1. Deb, this will be a really cute top. I love the fabric. I am going to make a couple of long summer dresses. I just have to get over to Joann's. I love to sew, but haven't done much this past couple of years. Have fun, Hugs
    We are not having a warm spring...it seems to be different every day.

  2. I have just caught up with your posts. There was a lovely receipe, an excellent recommendation (those girls are doing a wonderful job) Some thrifted gems and needlework, ~ what more could a girl want ~ thank you! By the way, are you saying that you can 'jump' from one knitting pattern to another in mid-project? I am impressed!

  3. I love all your projects!! I wish I could sew but other than basic things I've never been very good at it. Your sewing spot looks very neat and organized!

  7. I have the same pattern and love it. Now...if I could only get to it. It seems like I take on an extra 5 projects every week.

  8. How did the sweater turn out finally? I have one and I am stuck until I can get back to my knitting class and they can tell me what to do next...
