Working at the car wash.. do do dod o d doo dooo....

well..working on some knitting! lol

Lessee... I managed to get my blueish colored shrug done! ^^ And I'm pretty darn pleased with how it came out.

Front (ignore the dirty mirror! lol )

And back (why is my hair such a mess?!)

The colr is more true in the first pic... I like this one better than the white one.. the longer sleeves are more my style and seem to be more comfy since they're not diggin in my armpits.. lol

I also decided to join the Minisweater/Boobholder KAL on craftster.. and I haven't gotten very far yet...

I'm using Caron's Simply Soft in white.. on size 8 needles... I dunno if I'm doing ok with it or not! lol I'll have to wait til I get a little farther before I decide.. XDD

And since I seem to have an inability to start only one project and stick with it.. I've also jumped on the bandwagon for the Knit and Tonic Dream Swatch KAL..also found on crafster.

aaand again.. I haven't gotten very far... lol

I'm using TLC baby soft yarn and size 4 needles for this..

hmmm.. I need to stop doing so many things at once! lol I like to jump from project to project.. I don't know why.. XDDD

Isabeau WIP

I found this
KAL on crafster for a cute lil Isabeau purse. It looked cute and fairly easy to knit, so I figured I'd try it with some of the Sugar & Cream yarn I have lying around.

I managed to get the main body done while I was *cough* at work *cough* today.. and I think it's coming out ok. I really like the lacey stitch pattern... I kinda want to see if I can use that pattern for a tube top or something... I don't know if I'm up to attempting to figure that out quite just yet though.. XD

Here's what I have done so far...

Not too bad, right? :)

Now, if I can just figure out how to pick up stitches properly, I can start on the sides... lol
