School's out

Yesterday was my last class for the machine knitting course I took. It was a lot of fun and I'd recommend it to anyone in the LA area who wants to learn to knit on a machine. I managed to squeeze 3 projects out. I showed you the finished version of the first project, here are the other two.

This is the cardi I've been finishing up. You'll note that all the photos are headless. I've been suffering from some mean allergies and my eyes are red and puffy. The hair is a bit rough too, but we'll not dwell on that.

I'm very happy with the cardi. I wore it to work yesterday and to class. People have been very complimentary of the design. I guess sometimes simple is best.

And here is my last piece. It's made with a super soft cotton with a square neck in front and mid length fluttery sleeves. It's lightly shaped at the waist with a little peplum at the bottom. This would probably look even better on someone a size larger than I am, but I like it. I'm wearing it now.

In this picture you can even make out my burn lines from the beach excursion. It hasn't been too bad and I think I should be faded back to white in a couple more days.

Finally, here's the machine and stand I ordered. Nice, huh? I used it last night and class and the brand new one works SO well.
