Blogging from bed...

Hey everyone, unfortunately I have been really sick lately and haven't been able to do much but stay in bed for that last week :( I am starting to get really depressed because I miss going out and seeing my friends. The weather has been beautiful lately and I haven't even been able to go out an enjoy it....But on the bright side I have been getting some knitting done, since it is pretty much all that I can do, lol. I decided to make a sweater for myself to cheer myself up. I have had this design in my head for a while and have been dying to make it. I originally designed it for a presentation for Vogue Knitting's Early Fall issue. Here is the page from the presentation:

I was inspired by trends in knit techniques that I saw utilized by designers such as Cynthia Steffe and Byblos.
I made a swatch to test out the technique with Filatura Lanarota "Puno" (100% alpaca) yarn and Filatura Cervina "Imperiale" Super Kid Mohair (20% polyamide, 80% mohair). It looked exactly like I wanted it to so now I'm starting on the real thing!
Also today I put up another look on Lookbook.nu and here it is!

This dress was a great find, I just happened to be walking through the garment district around fashion week and came across a sample sale. They were selling all these Versace clothes for so cheap! I got this dress for about $45 I think, it was a couple years back. It's very sexy so I don't get the occasion to wear it very often but I love it :)
