One of my goals for MDSW09 was not to buy yarn if I hadn’t knit at least 3/4 of the yarn I had purchased last year. The yarn I bought for the boy’s sweater knit up lickity split. The next bit I tackled was the Tili Tomas Voile de la Mer that turned into the Forest vixen camisole. It’s *almost* done. I need to find some ribbon or some such for the straps. Lastly I was able to knock out this great shell in about a week. It’s cozy. I wore it on Saturday at MDSW and was quite comfortable. Especially once it got warm enough to take off my little jacket.

Notes: We took the first round of pictures and then I realized I had the shirt on backwards…sigh. 🙂 So then we took a second round. The ones where there is a lower neckline is with the shirt on “properly.”
