I did warn you about the neglect

But holy hell, I had no idea it had been almost 2 months since my last entry! Damnit, why don't people point this sort of thing out to me?!

It's okay, I understand. Nobody actually reads this blog anyway. ^_^


Just in case they do, however, it's time for an update.

When last we spoke, I had finished up Butterfly No. 2 and was working on some other things. Since then I've continued to work on said things but have also finished two more items, neither of which are for me. First we have the Petit Chou lingerie from the sexy issue of Knitty, made for a swap. For someone with a bra size identical to mine. For the record, the Petit Chou bralette thing is designed to accomodate up to a C cup. This is not terribly helpful when the person you are knitting it for is a 36D. At least I got to make the knickers without any modification.

Yes, I know it looks awful just laying there on the table. I blame the elastic. Since I hate lousy unmodeled pictures of my FOs I just had to take a slightly better one.

If you never wanted to see me wearing lingerie, well, don't click that. Also, shut up, this never happened.


My second most recent FO is yet another Butterfly.

Mods for this one include more beads and a double-stranded tonal frill, picot edging, and straps.

Yes, I know. I'm very pale and do not look great in orange. Good thing this one's not for me either, yes? When it gets to where it's going and I have been sent pictures of it on its recipient I shall post those and tell you a bit more, but until then it's a secret. SHHHH.

In other project news:

That was, in order,

-I have finished the back, fronts, and part of a sleeve of the Lace&Ruffle Cardigan.
-I have finished the back and front of the Colchique sweater and am stalling because I don't want to have to figure out how to convert the sleeves to be knit from the shoulder down because I know that I'm going to run out of yarn but want to use up as much of it as I can.
-I am halfway done with the Pomatomus socks, which I love, but have run out of yarn and thanks to my yarn ban cannot go get more for them until I have destashed enough.

I think I need to start a new project.

Jeez, you look great in lingerie, and your Pomatomi are perfect. I hate you!

Bee said...

Lovely work! I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Sumitra said...

Can I ask you what yarn you are using on the Colchique?
It looks gorgeous.

Beautiful everything, though from looking at your blog, everything you knit is. Would you mind posting the modifications you made to the bralette, I'd love to make one, but alas, I am also not a C cup. Great work, you knit beautifully.

I read it!

Have fun with all of yor FOs, and good luck with the de-stashing! (Ugh.)

Wow great work! You have really great taste!

Hi Juniper! Your butterfly looks adorable! I was wondering where you got the pattern... I read on crafster that you weren´t interested in buying the book because butterfly was the only pattern you fancied... the same happens to me (plus I live in Argentina, therefore shipping adds like $12!). Did anyone let you borrow their pattern? Did you find it anywhere online??? Thanks, and again, congrats on yours, they are wonderful!

I think it looks pretty on you :)You choose the most gorgeous patterns...too bad your blog is so "neglected", like mine!
