Lately I've been slogging along on two of my works-in progress, the ribs and lace tank:


and the toe-up jaywalker socks:


Both items fit perfectly. They are coming along slowly due to a few mistakes (and thus rework) and the small gauge that they're knit in. I'm hoping to have the tank done by the end of September, and the socks done by the end of our trip to Italy.

We're leaving for Italy soon, so this will be my last post for a few weeks. I'm ridiculously excited for this trip, we've been preparing for it for nearly a year now. I'll post pictures when we return. Ta ta!

WIP: ribs and lace tank

It seems like I've been knitting forever on this tank. I swear, for the last three days I have been knitting but the tank is not getting any longer... every time I measure I still have 2 inches to go before I can switch to the rib pattern.

Completed project: wrap skirt

It's been unseasonably cool here lately, it almost felt like fall earlier this week. Yesterday I took advantage of the chance to wear my brand new corduroy skirt, made from the free wrap skirt pattern at Fitz Patterns.


This is the third wrap skirt I've made from the pattern. The first (my favorite) was denim, the second was polyester suiting. The pattern is super, super easy and takes less time to make than it would take me to drive to the store, find and buy a skirt.
