A Few of My Finished Projects

Since I did a post on WIP's, I thought I might as well do a post on my recently finished projects.

White Tulips
This is a color work vest. I went through some trouble trying to test this vest, but in the end, it was all worth it. My first fair-isle project. This is my first finished garmernt I have knitted.

Hmm. I thought I had more to show but I guess not. Here is one more. This was finished in October though.

Ava's Cardigan
This is a baby cardigan. It was made for a teachers baby. I finished this in one day. This works up quickly and is a beautiful gift for someone.

WIP's

I have quite a few WIP's at the moment. I thought I would like to share them.


Easy Top Down Cardigan

This is a top down raglan cardigan with garter stitch borders.












Moss
Moss is a top down raglan v neck sweater with a leafy pattern. It originally has long sleeves but I am modifing it to 3/4 sleeves.













The No Name (Yet) Sweater
This sweater is a design by me. It is a cabled sweater. It's knit from bottom up and will be a crew neck.

A Big Change

I have changed my blog name to Isabella's Stitches, as you can see. I decided I wanted a name more "professional" as I am expanding my designs on to more things like garments and accessories. I will be known as this name for now on. I have also name my Ravelry name to IsabellasStitches. I will be posting about both crafts, knitting and crocheting, and just being a bit more "free", if you should say.
