A few goodies

Just a quick update - In the past 2 weeks I've been quite the stash buster, and produced this:
and this:
without buying ANY new yarn! So, to reward myself, I went out and bought yarn for 3 new projects. 0:-)

It's been a while...

But I've been a busy girl! This is going to be a picture-heavy post; apologies to anyone with dial-up! I finished the skirt during Spring Break and wore it to work when I came back. The kids are all fascinated and demand that I teach them to "make stuff".Over the course of the break I also made a little dressmaker's dummy for trying on WIPs...
...finished the Spaghetti Monster that Sean's been asking for...
...and dyed this loveliness, which I'm calling Iris. I think I'll make a few squares for a blanket from it.
Since break ended I've also started two new projects:
The first is based on the Anna pattern from Knitty, but I'm turning it into a tank, because it seems like a waste of pretty yarn to make something I'll never wear in public! The other is a hobo bag I stumbled across on Ravelry. I'm itching to get them finished and take advantage of this burst of inspiration while it lasts...

Things have been super busy lately between state testing and midterms and my immune system having apparently gone on vacation, but now it is Spring Break and the worst of the state tests is over, so I'm finally getting a little down time! I've spent most of it so far convincing myself that I should be enjoying this time off and not feeling guilty about not getting caught up/ahead on all the work and grad school stuff. I did, however, finish this:
It's currently being test-knit, then I'll publish it on Ravelry for the interested. I'm calling it Sea Spray, cuz I think the color and the nautical-themed lace patterns demand it.

I've also started the Dance Skirt from Interweave Crochet in a lovely dark green CotLin. It's not really big enough to warrant pictures yet though...
