Oof. My Tummy.

Not feeling so great this morning. But I think I can handle a blog post. :) I have an FO to report... I finished the ribbed lacy bolero. It only took my 6 days to knit! It took me more time to post about it than it did to knit... Ahem.
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Stone
Amount: 143grams
Pattern: Ribbed Lace Bolero by Kelly
Needles: US8 & US10.5
Started: Sep 2007
Finished: Sep 2007
To be honest, I wasn't too sure about it the first time I tried it on. It wasn't as fitted as I was imagining. But I wore it to work and over the course of a day, decided that I like it! I really like it. :) It was instant gratification knitting and that's exactly what I needed at the moment.
Right now, I'm knitting an Indigo Ripples skirt fast and furious. I'm onto the straight stockinette part after redoing the increases once. The first time was too big, so I ripped and restarted. Now it's fitting just fine.
I'm also starting the process of Christmas knitting. Let the gift knitting begin!
In other real-life news, last weekend my little brother graduated from Air Force Basic Training. My family flew out to celebrate with him and we had a fun time in San Antonio. Here are some of the most fun pictures.

She's so CHIC!

My beautiful sister obliged me and took some in-action photos of the Swallowtail Shawl I made her.
LeeLoo & Kaylee.
Her kitty LeeLoo is pretty cute too. :)
Lovin' the swing coat. Kaylee can pull that stuff off easy.

Thanks Kaylee! It looks awesome! Glad you are enjoying it.

In other knitting news: I started a Lacey Ribbed Bolero and am almost finished. This baby flew off the needles... I think it's been 5 days since I started it? It should be finished within a week... I can't wait to wear it! I love knitting with Cotton Ease.

Also, the legwarmers are progressing... I'll be flash dancing in no time...
