new projects...

 I know it has been a while.. I basically have been working on one project the last few weeks. I thought I was knitting faster than I really was... so much time has gone by since my last post. We are experiencing some spring like weather here in Washington state. I say spring LIKE.. hehe.
So I decided to try something that I have been wanting to do for a while and that is buy a very large mans sweater from the thrift store, take it apart and then knit something wonderful out of the yarn. This is what I found after a hunt and search with my son. The price was good , 100% cotton. Let me tell you, that sweater was made very well. I was able to get almost all of the yarn with very little waste. I now have enough beautiful cotton aran weight yarn to make a good size sweater. More on this project in the future.
 Here is a picture of my Halo cowl. All the knitting is finished and I just have to join the ends and wash it. I really like how this turned out. It is very light and airy with a little glitter. Perfect for spring.
 I had to throw in this picture of the comfy seats I sit in on the bus on the way home from work. They are so comfy that sometimes I fall asleep!

Wow, that seat does look super comfy! Wish I had one of those for my living room, LOL! Looks comfy and supportive.
