FO Modern Rib Hat

Project Details: Started on March 25 an finished on the 27th.  Crazy fast knit with my favorite Spud & Chloe yarn.  The pattern is a free pattern on Ravelry!  I only used ~125 yards worth of yarn.  I'm using the rest to make an adult hat for me!

I have gotten interweave for over a decade.  A long long time.  And this is my last issue.  It no longer holds the draw it once did.  I don't find myself rushing to knit stuff.  I'm sad the relationship is over ... but happy to see if I can find a new magazine to fall in love with.  RIP Interweave.

FO Mits

Project Details:  This pattern was not what I was hoping for.  So, I modified it.  I cast of 3 sts and added 3 for the thumb hole.  I had gauge and yet these things are so small my kid can wear them.  Took me 2 days and I'm so unimpressed with them.  BLAH!

FO Elephant Spring Dress

Zooey told me her elephant needed a spring dress.  So, this is the one I went with.

Project Details:  Started on April 24th and finished on the 30th.  I didn't work on it non-stop.  It is a little cupcake dress that is a free pattern on Ravelry.  I went up one size needle from the last knit and think next time I might go up one more.  I used left over sock yarn.

FO Spud the Sheep

Project Details:  I've wanted to make Spud for a while.  Zooey's teacher asked for a sheep, so I thought it was the perfect time to try out the pattern.  I used the Spud & Chloe yarn (which I like for stuffed animals) and size 4 needles.  I started on April 20th and finished on April 29th.  The body was the longest part of the knit (all the twists).  I did go to youtub and watch how to do them.  I really loved the pattern and how it was written!

FO Beaded Shawlet

Project Details: Started on April 9th and finished on April 22.  I have tried to destash this yarn multiple times.  But the problem is I had 2 skeins and I spent $20/skein (and who wants to spend that).  So, instead of destashing I decided to look up a pattern that used all the yarn.  I found this nice shawlet.   I'm really happy with how it turned out and I think it is going to make a great holiday gift!
