I feel like I've been slacking lately! I haven't written here on the blog for two whole months...obviously. I've been working on school this semester--which is an excellent thing for me. I have also been riding the bus to school nearly every day this semester, which gives me A LOT of extra knitting time (or study time, depending on what is going on that day).

I have finished a few things since the beginning of the year--and I LOVE all of them! I FINALLY finished the mitts out of the baby alpaca yarn that Marcus gave me for Christmas. They are SO soft and warm! I also finished my first shawl, knitted with fingering weight yarn--and I love that project too! My mitts for Ravelympics are finished as well (a picture of Emiline, my sister and model, is just below).

Right now I am trying to decide what to knit next. I DO have a few unfinished projects...but sometimes you just need something NEW! I will probably start bringing my second shawl to work on while riding to school (it's about 1/4 of the way done) because I want to start wearing it soon!

I am also currently knitting the "Deep-V Argyle Vest." It is 99% done--all I need to do is knit the neck lining! I don't know if I can bring myself to knit it though...I have fallen out of love with the colors I chose...I really wish I would've done something like black and white or chocolate and white--not cinnamon and tan! The colors still look good together, but I don't know what I will wear it with. I guess a white shirt and jeans will always work.

The days are getting longer and warmer. I am SO excited for spring to be here because I will be able to take better pictures of my knitting and of other awesome things. As soon as it starts getting pretty outside, I will be taking many more pictures and posting them here. I can't wait to start soaking up the sun!
