FO Stopover Sweater

Project Details: I started this sweater on September 17th and finished on October 8th.  Probably the fastest knit sweater ever.  This photo is before blocking - I'll have to updated with a blocked version (it does fit better).  I used Debbie Bliss Lux Aran weight yarn.   I did add ~ 1" to the body and 2" to the sleeves.  Otherwise I just followed the pattern.  I'm loving it!

FO honeycomb mittens

Project Details:  started on August 14 and finished September 12th.  Super fast knot and I love the pattern.  I used 2 skeins of yarn.  The pattern has no gauge so I'm going to have to really block these.

FO Sole Sister Mittens

Project Details:  Chevalier Mitten!! Started August 22nd and finished September 4th.  Super fun knit on size 4 needles with sock yarn (2 threads together for the whole pattern).  My only problem with the pattern is that the palm is written for a right hand and you have to reverse for a left (which I forgot to do and then had to frog part of it).  Otherwise a really fast fun knit!  I used a full skein of Hedgehog Fibre Pollen sock yarn.  These mittens are nice because they are long!
