Sonia Rykiel's knitting.
I'm seriously wanting to make a knitted bathing suit. Is that crazy or what?

I'm becoming obsessed with knitwear.

Rodarte's knitting.

My first venture into knitwear. A green cardigan, knitted top-down with raglan sleeves. The coolest part about working this way is you can try it on as you go. I can use some of the fashion skills I learned in college but, creating the fabric while your structuring it to fit on a body is a whole new challenge.

I'm working on my first crochet pillowcase. I love all these various knitted/crochet pillows piled together.

Rachelle Vasquez finally has a website up with pictures of her awesome crochet scarves. I saw her work at the BUST Craftacular last month -- I'm obsessed!

One of my favorite Christmas presents -- purple leather-bound with silver-tipped pages. I don't know anything about H. G. Wells but this amazingly beautiful book suddenly makes me want to. It's from Barnes & Noble, they put together a bunch of classic compilations, each with it's one style of cover art. The experience of reading a beautiful book can totally enhance the incentive to read in the first place.

The holidays were great fun, but now it's back to sewing.
