FO Falling Water Shawl

Project Detail:
Falling Water Shawl.  I started this on January 23rd and finished it on February 17th.  I had some good car driving in there to finish it up.  Took 550 yards of yard and came out just perfect.   I liked the pattern a lot and I made the large size on size 8 needles.  The only thing that was strange was that I had to move the stitch markers for the repeats every RS of the pattern and the chart seemed a bit off.

FO T-shirt

I finished my first stretch t-shirt.  The project failed at first.  Seeing stretchy cotton is tough!  But my second attempt came out better.  The fabric and pattern were free from an estate sale.  The pattern is Simplicity 6902.  The pattern is from 1975 which is pretty sweet.  I made no changes to the pattern and worked hard to match up the stripes.  Overall the neckline isn't perfect - maybe next time!

FO Bulky Sweater

Project Details:
3 skeins of Ella Rae Mega Super Bulky yarn.  I don't think I will ever knit with this again!   Too small for me - I'll have to gift it to a tiny person.  I used size 15 needles and it took me from December 22 to January 1st to finish.  It was suppose to be a one day knit.  I guess I don't knit that fast any more.

FO Cranky Scarf

Just another quick cranky scarf.  I've figured out that tightly twisted yarn and the machine hate one another!!!

FO Cotton Dress

I got a great book last Christmas filled with simple sewed outfits.  Ways to mix and match patterns to crest stuff you like.  This was my first project.  From start to finish it took only 2 hours.  A lot of that was pattern tracing.  Overall I like the 60's gel of the dress and the pattern is fun.  I wish that I had made the top a bit smaller and the dress a bit longer.  Next time!  Hard to tell in the photo but it does have a nice little split neck and the straps are funky and overlapped.
