all the small things

There are times when we all crave knitting the small things...things that only take a small amount of time and yarn. Who doesn't love instant gratification anyway?
My knitting lately has been all about those small stuffs. Let's see what I have on my needles now...
-Knitty Shedir
-Knitty Pomatomus
-Fat Bottom bag from Happy Hooker
-Glampyre's Minisweater

Yarn : Rowan Calmer, 2 skeins red and 1 skeins purple
Needle : Suzanne ebony needle 5.0 mm
Modification : smaller gauge, stripes
This is a stashbusting project, knitted for my necessity of having a small cardigan in my summer wardrobe. I love how it comes out, and the yarn is a real pleasure to work with.
-Colinette Point 5 scarf

I knitted this months ago, but blogger acted up when I wanted to blog about it, and it was long forgotton, until now.
-Glampyre's OSW. I knitted this about a month ago, but again, haven't blog about it. I've been wearing it a couple of times, but no picture so far.

July is here!!! I'm so happy since it means the period of being broke in June is over ;) I'm going to London today to rummage through all the sales! Yeah, including the yarn sales too ;p And of course, July is also the month of my birthday. Since I'm nowhere near happy of being almost a year older, I can't stop thinking what to gift myself.
Have a great weekend everyone! Happy July!

A stripy version of that little sweater is so cute, and fits you perfectly! I like to knit small things in the summer too. :-)

I never thought to mix red and purple together but I like the result! It's edgy!
