Tight knit week

Soooooo my crafting life has PRETTY MUCH been about knitting this week. You see, I go in phases with different crafts. I go through serious paper phases, jewelry making phases, painting, knitting, etc. I always come BACK to each craft, but I just get really into one thing or another at different points in time. Right now its a knitting phase. A few things I've been up to:

a "Happy Autumn" gift for my hall director/boss who happens to love coffee. I made her a cozy for mugs that opens and closes. It's out of one of my very favorite yarns.

a new neck warmer for myself for fall time. Soon to be accompanied by matching scroogies.

and some fun little nerd photobooth action haha

I've also been watching too much project runway and I've decided that I'm going to make myself some clothes. I don't care if I'm not a seamstress. I don't care if I'm not the best sewer in the world....I'm doing it. I need something like this:

yes, my dear friends, a red pencil skirt. And I shall wear it with patterned tights, handmade headbands, and nerd glasses. I think I'm really going to try it and I think it would be AWESOME if I could put a little tiny ruffle on the back. Yes.

If anyone knows of some awesome beginner level knitting patterns, link me up! <3
ok out until tomorrow! Expect some linkage for you in the afternoonish. Until then, I live in the land of handmade accessories.

Very cute stuff! :)
I get like that, too, where I go through stages. I think it's a lot better than having one specialty, lol. But the downside (for me, anyways) is that I always have a lot of unfinished projects! :P

A-DOR-ABLE. I think you are pretty much the cutest thing ever. :)

I can't wait to see your neck warmer when finished. :)
