Oh Butters....

Butters, atop my thumb, unwittingly melting my heart with his cuteness

There's a knitting groove back at the Sanctuary. I have proof:

Silk Corset -
I unhappily had to frog it and restart when I realized the size I chose was much too small. And through some black knitting magic, I ended up with about 15 less stitches than I needed. Here you see the revised work. I want it done NOW! I've ordered some silk ribbon online to lace up. I haven't decided whether I should wear the laced-up bit on the front or the back.

Retro Sweater -
Very modded top. I love the merino yarn; it's Louet Gems in Aubregine. I'm making it much smaller than the called for sizing. I really don't care for loose-fitting tops.

Lingerie Dress -
Sadly, this one is on hold because it hurts me to look at it. The binding off along one skirt-side didn't go so well. I have to get creative and fix it up somehow.

Wound Rayon Yarn in Delicious Purples -
Hmmmm, what to do with this?

And, here's some headline news:
I am NOT (entirely) the Plant Angel of Death.

See the Oregano! It's, uh, living still.

You're projects all look stunning. And I miss my bird from when I was little now. I can't wait to see the finished products.
