Knitterly Details

We had so many finished objects this week, we spent a good portion of the class showing it off to everyone. Everyone donned their newest creations or passed it around for everyone to inspect and admire. Mittens, shrugs, blankets, all projects had their 15 minutes of fame.

A new dress made by Mary for a special little girl. Metallic silver yarn with a Poinsettia flower coordinating with burgundy trim. A holiday dress for sure and an heirloom to be treasured.

Here's a close up of the detail. (Click on picture for a larger image. Believe me, it's worth it for this beautiful dress!)

Deb showed off her newest creation. She had a fur vest laying around that she felt needed a bit of sprucing up. Her and I both agreed on wearing fur vests just don't seem the same as a fur coat. So, she knitted sleeves in matching colors and sewed them onto her vest. (Would it surprise you that she knit them in seed stitch?)

Also, our new item this week is Delightful. No, really, it's called Delightful. Soft and light, it has a wonderful halo that adds a bit of whimsy to any project.
