Knitting for New Year’s

The reason I had been frantically knitting spontaneous projects was that I took a trip down to Tampa to see Barenaked Ladies for New Year’s Eve. I wanted to make something fun and sparkly to wear. At first, it was just going to be furry boas, but then the idea of a knitted bra was proposed. So I made Zaftig in black and a fur bikini top to wear over it. Decked out in black, I was ready for the New Year.

I also made a boa for my friend Emma and here we are mugging for the camera in them:

One hightlight of the night was that from our front row place on the floor, I tossed the furry over-bra up on stage. The drummer, Tyler, picked it up when he was out singing and put it on:

And to complete my holiday knitting, my friend Rachel was so enamored of my elf caps, that she hoped for one in green and white. Last night, after watching her hand bell choir perform, I gave it to her. She was quite pleased:

Now it’s back to my regularly scheduled knitting. I’m so excited to get back to projects that don’t have deadline. Knitting under the gun isn’t fun.
