FO Ayako Vest

I've had this done for a month or so,but have been trying to decide on finishing.  In the end I just put a pin through it.
Project details: 690 yards.  Started on April 14 and finished on June 14.  It looked a lot smaller until I soaked it for blocking.  The yarn really stretched!

FO Shawl

Project Detsils:
Started on November 4th 2015 and finished on May 31st.  Mountain of Light shawl.  Took two skeins of sock yarn and had one cat attack (where they frogged a few rows for me).  I love the pattern and color combos!!

Halloween Costume

This is the cartoon Heidi character that Zooey wanted to dress as this year.

FO Climbing Vines Sweater

Project Details:
This took me a while and I picked this sweater to knit because I loved the yarn.  Started on December 20th and finished on March 26th.  I would say I worked on it on and off.  I used 1225 yards of Debbie Bliss Pure Cashmere yarn (let's hope I don't felt it).  I added an extra inch to the sleeves and they still ended up 3/4 length.  Guess it is perfect for spring time.  The only other issue I have is that the yarn came in 25 yard balls.  A lot of loose ends to weave in.

FO Little Leaf Scarf

First project of 2016.  A swap scarf.  Just one whole skein of sock yarn.  Quick easy pattern to memorize and work.  Started on January 16 and finished on February 25th.  I changed the pattern a little to cast on 48 sts.  I'll probably make this again.

FO Watershed

Project Details: started on June 11 and finished on November 28th.  I used Debbie Bliss Cotton Silk Aran yarn in a mustard color.  This knit is not one to start and put down.  It is too complex for that.  I would actually say it is one of the hardest constructions I've ever gone.   I did add a few extra rows to make it longer and only had 2 feet of yarn left.

FO Leaflet Sweater

Project Detsils:
Started on October 1st and finished on November 19th.  I used Elsebeth Labold Silk Wool XL (Aran weight).  I love the drape of it.  I did another half repeat of the pattern because I was worried it would be too short.  And I'm happy I did!
