Post #100!!

Hello World!!
Contrary to popular belief, I still exist.
And this is the 100th post to the Black Heels and Purls. I'm pretty excited about it.

In a much needed day of personal space and alone time, I finished off a few WIPs today. And by a few, I mean two.

The first is my purl bee beret. It's my new favorite thing ever. Ambrrr keeps trying to trick me into committing to wearing it every day until the end of the semester. I'm afraid to commit, but not convinced I won't wear it every day anyways. I made it out of Knit Pick's Palette in golden heather. I was afraid the color would be atrocious next to my face, but I'm so in love. I'm about to cast on for another one in some other Palette I have laying around. Purple and greenish-bluish stripes, I believe.

Secondly, I finally finished the second of my fetching gloves. I've had 1 1/2 done for over a month, and finally just sewed in my last loose ends. I'm not particularly thrilled by them, but then again they never had a chance being finished just hours after my new hat love.

I've finished a few other projects since my last post (September 27...whoops).

- ribbed lace bolero out of cascade 220 in a light gray( I love it so much I have cascade sitting around to make myself another and one as a christmas present for one of my roommates)
- one of my hedgerow socks in yellow katia mississippi 3
- a one row scarf in vanna's choice in a beautiful blue (for a friend who's allergic to wool)

Trying to get started on some christmas knitting, but I just want to make myself more berets.
Plans include worsted weight socks for my mom, maybe in the bernat cashmere natural blend, a ribbed lace bolero in turquoise cascade 220 for one of my roommates, a scarf for an aunt who has been asking for one for at least a year, and I'll have to come up with some more things, like knits for my two other roommates, and something for ambrrr, of course. For right now though, I'm about to dig through my stash and cast on for another beret....

Oh, and, ambrrr and I just ordered from knitpicks. I got a bit carried away. I decided I wanted to try my hand at some lace knitting so I've planned a few scarves and shawls. ambrrr's making jellyfish, I believe.

Ok, that's all.

Pictures coming as soon as I get around to taking them. Tomorrow? Ambrrr and I keep discussing photo shoots and then not having them. Whoops.

Happy 100th post,
<3 uhlissa
