Two-color brioche cowl, finished

I completed this project awhile back(!) and just recently realized that I never shared it here. The gold yarn was "special," from a few years back. I knew it would be gorgeous on it's own, but I loved the idea of pairing it with a neutral in two-color brioche so I didn't have to worry about pooling. Also, I love that brioche is inherently reversible, so there's a "tame" side and a "wild" side to this accessory...

Tiny colorwork sweater, finished

I've mentioned numerous times that much of my knitting lately has been gift-related (and secret). I finished and gifted one such item recently and wanted to finally share it here.

Cooler temps always make for a clearer mind and a happy heart for me, and it helps that physically I'm feeling much better after a virus earlier in the week...

The Weekender sweater, finished

I bound off this sweater and gave it a bath several weeks ago, on July seventeenth, specifically. As excited I am to have a completed, hand-knitted sweater for whenever fall weather arrives here, it took some time/effort to take pictures and bear the thought of actually wearing it. However, a few weeks ago, I went to coffee with my friend Molly and she took a few pictures of me wearing it, before we melted in the heat. And to be fair, I actually wore it inside for the duration of our coffee drinking, talking, and knitting time...
