I believe in pink

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.  - Audrey Hepburn

On the needles, I have Brigid.  Pattern calls it a jacket, but I'd call it a cropped cardigan.  Either way, mine is in bright fuschia.  It's done in pieces to give the garment structure, and I realize I don't mind seaming most of the time.  I have the back and both sleeves done, and have started the first front panel.

I also have my yarn challenge project for Soper Creek Yarn (my LYS).  The yarn chosen is sport-weight, so it'll take a while but I like the colours and my project will be cute when done.  Still a mystery for now:)  Stay tuned for details!

Off the needles!

Long time since a post, but lots of kntting happening.  This is my Balcony Vest.  Original pattern name is Montague, which brings to mind the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet.  I love how the lace looks in the bulky tweed yarn.  I wear this a lot, perfect layering piece for a cold workplace!

This one is a hat from Weekend Hats book, the original was in a purplish yarn, but I had navy on hand. 
More projects on the needles, and a few I gifted without photos (bulky cowls = perfect teacher gifts!).
