I am a knitting fool right now. I feel like I have a lot of unfinished sewing stuff, and it is all in various states, but when I come home from work, all I want to do is pick up those needles!

This is the $5 in Paris sweater. Here is my ravelry link. It was my first sweater, it knit up pretty quickly and it is cute. My only problem is that I washed and dried it and the neckline GREW. It is way big now and I had to safety pin the sholders to my bra to make sure my shoulders were not hanging out. I hate that! I am going to now start on the Agatha by Andi Suterland. I saw Lladybird's and I love it. So I am starting that today!!

In other finished news, I did finish my first Jasmine pattern by Colette, and I love it! It was SO easy to put together and the effect is adorable. I also made the Ginger too, to wear with it, and my fabric choice was less than what I wanted, so its fate is not as favorable. I am thinking of putting one together in denim and I think that will be better for me and way cuter. I think I have Colette Fever, because I also bought the Clover pattern to make, if I can ever get over my fear of making pants.

But life is good, my husband and I have been a flurry of making. And I have been trying to stick to  my workout routine(not always making it because I am sorry, leaving for work at 7am and not getting home until 8pm is not fun) I can't believe I have been married for almost 8 months already! Time flies by.

Sorry about the work bathroom pics, this is the only place I can take pics of myself lately. I need a camera I think... :)

Nice work on both! I totally don't have the patience to knit a sweater and I'm always worried I'll finish it and it will fit horribly. I'm very impressed with how well it fits!
