FO: Billie!! At last!!!!

11 May

But first, let me introduce you to Lindsay David:

He is a Worrible and I got him for my birthday. He’s the most squishable, cuddly, anti-anxiety guy out there, and he’s my new best friend. I thought you should know.

Anyways, Billie is finally done! I’m wearing it right now and it is warm and cosy (except for the cuffs that are still slightly damp, but poo on those). I took oodles of pictures for your entertainment and amusement:

Billie is A Lot Of Sweater, especially in the bright orange I picked. I am quite okay with this, I just expect to get a lot of Looks when I wear it out and about. Also you can hardly see the bit of wrong orange on the one shoulder, which is excellent. All’s well that ends well! Plus I learned from my LYS how to sew seams together the Right Way, which is pretty exciting.

Pattern: Billie by Kim Hargreaves
Time Span: 16 May 2011 to 10 May 2012.
Materials: 25~ skeins of Valley Yarns Sugarloaf and a little bit of Fibranatura Sensational
Ravelry link: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/annanlove19/billie

Other stuff’s been going on too! I got the last of the Dawn I’ll need for my Rumble, so now I just need to decide on the second color and slowly stock up on that, too. It only takes four skeins, which isn’t too bad, but they’re still $20 each.

I also got a skein of Cascade 220 Superwash to make worsted weight socks because, y’know, worsted weight socks. It’s a lovely marigold that doesn’t really show up here:

A few days ago I did a Bad Thing and cast on Anisette with my Ella Rae Latte. It’s super soft and silky and shiny and wonderful, and the pattern is a good amount of interesting-but-not-too-boring-and-not-too-complicated. Here’s a really shitty picture of my progress so far (please note the donut stitch markers):

And that, my friends, is it! I know it’s Friday and this isn’t a vlog, but this post lended itself better to being written out. Expect a vlog update sometime this weekend.
