Mosaic Table

I had a picture of the table sans mosaic, but my camera was fritzy and deleted them.
So here is a picture of it, sans grout:


I painted a half-ass tree on this years ago. I've been collecting broken glass and mirrors for wuite some time in preparation. Also, I smashed some plates. Got the rage out.

Whisper Cardigan

In the past few days, I was able to finish my whisper cardigan, at last.
Using a cone of fingering weight yarn from Salvation Army, I made the smallest size using a US#7 circular needle. The pattern was really well written, I found it in the spring issue of Interweave Knits.


The construction is really interesting. The back is worked sleeve to sleeve. After, stitches are picked up for the collar. The back is knit down from the collar using short rows.

I have enough yarn to make about a billion more things. Any suggestions?

I know it seems...

That I am not knitting and only wearing clothes.
This is because of all the test knitting I am doing.
I'd prefer not to blog about it until the book is out.

...But lets just say that 200+ stitches in 1x1 rib on a #3 needle is killing me.

Oh gee, only 4 more inches to go.
