long time no post....

I didn't have much time for crocheting last year. It was my final year of language school and I had way too much homework to contend with.

I am currently working on a sweater for one of my teachers and a skirt for me!!

little blue sweater

This is the first thing I have made in a while... I decided it was cute enough to post a photo of. The young lady I made it for is 7. She put it on right away and showed it off!

yes, I'm still crocheting!

I have a few things that I am working on.
I was able to purchase more cashmere.
I am also knitting right now.
It has been hard to find the time to take photos and actually post here.
Or maybe I have just gotten lazy!

How to measure your body!

Since I knit as well as crochet I have a subscription to Knitting Daily. Today's email had instructions on how to measure yourself for a project!

Now I need to find my measuring tape!

not so happy!

here is the finished product... I think it is too small for me!

Since I am doing this without a pattern this is basically an experiment that I will keep at until I get it right.

I have already started another.... I guess this one will have to be a gift to someone who wears a medium!

I think it will look better on me if I start the solid part before the third pattern starts.

Russian Sweater Pattern

Here is a close up of what I have so far... I am using a 4 mm (size F)hook.

I found it here:

I like using charts now that I can actually read them! I am making few modifications to the pattern. I don't want it to be quite so open across the bust line so I am knitting it in stockinette stitch up to the collar line. The bottom half is done in the open crochet.
