So my blogging habits have not gotten much better lately, and I am sorry to say probably won't for the next little while. I am just ridiculously swamped with school work so I have not had the time or energy to do much extra typing!

I have gotten some knitting done though. Twist is finished! Here is Mike proudly wearing his new vest. It looks really great on him. Sorry the picture is kind of crappy, the flash was too bright and made it look like there is holes in, but there isn't! I am very proud of myself and best of all I think he will actually wear it. He proudly wore it to work yesterday and said that he got a lot of comments. Yay!

So for anyone wondering, the pattern is Twist from No Sheep for You, I don't own the book, it was in Interview Knits. I used Knitpicks Wool of Andes in coal and 3.25mm needles. I am not nuts about the yarn, there was quite a few errors in the spin and some icky hard bits, but it is quite soft and has a nice stretch.

Anyone remember the Sheldon I knit a while ago? Well a friend of mine is having a baby shower so he finally found a home. Good for Sheldon :) I used black yarn (from Mike's sweater) to make the eyes so he is baby safe.

Lastly, because I am a follower and not a leader I have jumped on the embossed leaves bandwagon. I have to say though it is a really fun and addictive pattern :)
