Yes that's me I'm referring to. I finally got something worth posting though. A finished object!!!

I finally finally finished my simple knitted bodice/sweater from stitchdiva and I'm so glad to be done with it. It's such an easy knit. I was just lazy. It should be more fitted but I didn't check the size as I went much. And it makes me look a lot wider than I am. So that's my fault. I also have a pic of a top I finished from an older interweave knits. A corset top. It turned out too big as well. It was one of my first ones. I substituted and I did get gauge but the yarn is a lot heavier and stretchier than the original yarn. So now I'm stuck with another too big top. I seem to do that a lot. I also started my rusted root top for the sexy knitters club knit-along. But they are in the process of moving their blog in some way. So I can't post there until they finish. I'm excited about it though. And thanks to someone very helpful (Jenn, whose blog I just found) I got the yarn I wanted in the color I wanted. Banana cotton fleece. It's gorgeous too, just the right color. I'm so happy with it so far. This is a pic of the lace panel down the side front. It's so cute.I also cast on my Isabella top for that knit-along. I'm doing the size small on larger needles. To get a size in between small and medium. So no pic yet, but hopefully soon, and it should go faster on bigger needles too. The only other thing I have to start is a pattern from the fitted knits book I got. And when I finish rusted root, on to sahara. Since the sexy knitters club knit-along is a double. And I've already got the yarn for it.

So that's what I've been up to. Hopefully I'll have more progress to post about soon!

All your FOs look lovely dear! =) Where did you get the pattern for the corset top ?

Looks like a great start on the rusted root! Glad to see you found my blog... nothing too exciting though. Hopefully, after a few more nights of more sleep I'll feel a bit more like posting (and have the brain to do it!) The corset top looks great as well!
