So this wasn't one that was finished this year, but it was revamped, which I'm totally counting as I never wore it before.  It started life as the Sprout sweater by Amy King, but I didn't like the placement of the buttons because that made it gap weirdly in the front, so I moved the buttons over and now it fits like a dream and I wear it a lot!


For my ninth item I knit the Date Night by Nikol Lohr from Knitty First Fall 2011.  I love it, I made it with Jagger-Spun Wool Silk Lace Weight Yarn in a deep red color that I originally bought for a shawl, but that never happened, so I doubled it up for this sweater.  I love it, it looks really cute with my new denim skirt.

So the next item in my aresenal of 29 things is the awesome Unbiased bag that I made.  I love it, it's super hippy wonderful, I made it from some recycled sari silk yarn while sitting at the munchkin's football practice!

So for my 7th item I made was the Sorbetto Tank from Colette Patterns, it's a free download, so I'd go get it if I were you, cuz it's an awesome pattern and I want to make like 500 more.  I also used the sleeve pattern drafted by The Sew Weekly. I made it out of some white swiss dot I had laying around the house and it's too cute for words.  I think the next time I make it I'll make the sleeves a little narrower and I'd like to try making a 3/4 sleeve version too.  Also, I'd like to try it without the pleat in the middle and with some embellishment on the pleat and maybe with pin-tucks instead of the pleat.  See what I mean about this pattern?


Ok, so I'm going to post a few things I made and hopefully we'll get to 28 in the next 3 months.  So first up is my February Lady Sweater, I knit it in Debbie Stoller's Full o' Sheep yarn in a bright yellow.  When I started this, I wasn't sure that I was going to have much use of it until later in the year, but as it turns out, my new office keeps the AC at 69 degrees, so I wear a sweater almost every day.  I love the lines of this sweater and the way it looks on, I'm super happy I made it.
