new photos FINALLY!!

I know I've been saying for months that I would have photos of my projects soon.  Yeah, well, soon is finally here.  Sorry it took so long!  I couldn't get the camera cord to work on my laptop and my PC isn't working.  Finally my friend Dawn told me that she never uses the cord, just the card reader.  Oh, DUH!  Major smack-my-forehead moment.  I forgot all about the card reader!  After downloading the 200+ photos on my camera of the last couple months, I finally got around to not only posting them here, but (you may want to sit down for this!) posting them on Ravelry too!!  My handle is iffer over there if you want to add me.  I NEVER post things over there.  It used to be because the whole upload to flickr then to ravelry was too much hassle.  I couldn't even remember my flickr login info half the time.  But I finally put these 2 projects on there along with the couple projects I've had on there since I started Ravelry.  Maybe I'll start uploading more often. . .then again, with my busy crazy life, who knows.

close up of the pattern on the Cheshire Cat Stole.  Thank you so much again to my friend TB who helped me get this yarn!  Pagewood Farms Chugiak in Plum.  Matches my bridesmaid dress perfectly!!

since I used larger yarn and needles than the pattern called for, I took out one repeat.  Measured out perfectly during blocking!  Looks great!  I used silver beads, the bride's colors are sangria (plumish) and silver.  I will hopefuly have photos of me in the dress wearing it.
my Tappan Zee cardi.  I still need to find buttons.  never would have thought that purple and brown would look good together, but they really do on this!  I'm thrilled with it.  The purple is the lovely stuff Suna gave me as a going away gift and the brown is some stash knit picks stuff.  love love love this.  Now I just need to find the right color tank to wear under it. 

OK so I hope you enjoyed the pics I finally got around to posting!  Right now I'm working on the Timeless lace stole (I think that's what it is called) in the latest Knit N Style, and the hearts and flowers socks from wendy johnsons toe up socks book.  I think I've gotten addicted to lace.
