Knitting between work, eat, sleep.

As almost everyone knows, I try to get a good chunk of my crafting yarn wize done on the commute into work.  First thing in the morning, its hard to get a seat to work on my projects, but on the way home I tend to have a lot more options.

Other than my seating arrangements on public transit, here's a few finished projects



First thing is first, we have our 'hat that shall not be named'




 Next we have a progress artsy shot of the pattern I was working on.  Its from a magazine called "Lets Knit" for the August 2013 edition.  One of the little things I spoiled myself with this month.




And the final product of said pattern.  A bright and vibrant tea cozy (the yarn came with the pattern in a mini kit)





It hasn't been all knitting though. I did manage to finish some spinning as well. Alpaca on the left, and SweetGeorgia superwash wool on the right.



And lastly, an earring set I made...kinda. I did the interior webbing, the wrapping, and set the feathers for the earrings. I bought the original set from a jewellery/fashion accessory store called Ardene's. It was in a grab bag and I thought...maybe i could make earrings for my LARP character. Ive always wanted a pair of dream catcher earrings anyways.
Thats all for now.
