I'm not dead, promise.

I know it's been a long time since I posted anything, but it's not as if I haven't been knitting. I've actually been doing quite a bit.
I knit this awesome cardigan from Interweave knits, called Amrosia. I knit it with KnitPicks Comfy Worsted yarn, named "October." So I named it my "Charming October" Cardigan.

There are little clasps in the front, which I kind of like. They were a pain to sew though.
Then there's this little guy who is in the works. It will be a hat that has the British flag on it. And ear-flaps. And a yarn mo-hawk... Yep. It's what my friend asked for, and she said she will wear it with pride at her Brit hubby's side :D so more power to her.

Hadley Mobile

The baby mobile is finished! My friend Heather was delighted. I hope her baby Hadley (which means "fields of Heather" awwwwww) has fun with it. ^_^


I used 2 plastic hangers for the top. I broke the top off of one and stuck it inside of the other then wrapped them with a bunch of yarn (which took forever).
I then attached them with some blue thread. Was going to use fishing line because I thought that would be cute, but I didn't want to go out and buy fishing line only for this project. And I don't know anyone that fishes, heh.
