I know. I need a real camera. Here are a few (bad) pictures of the last two FOs. The first is the baby kimono I designed. I didn't mean for it to be so puckered along the edges, but I rather like the look. I may revise the pattern for next time.

The second is an in-between project. I had one skein of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk that I made into a neck warmer (or gaiter) and wrist warmers. I couldn't believe how far the yarn went. Though it seems like an expensive yarn at around $14 per skein, it went a long way. I will complain a bit about winding it. I didn't get it wound in New York, where I bought it, because I figured the slippery-ness would cause it to unwind during the trip home. It was such a pain to wind by hand. There were a ton of tangles throughout. I made this set for myself because I wanted to feel the silk next to my skin, especially on my sensitive neck. Sorry about the bad pictures. Oh, and the diamond pattern is the one I had to rewrite from Knitting on the Edge (though I'm less cranky about it now).

Please read the next post. I wrote two tonight. The following is a loooong tirade that has been on my mind. I'd like to hear other thoughts on this issue.

Everything is so nifty. I just love quick little knits.
