FO Almondine Socks



Project Details:  These are the first pair of socks I cast on when I got back on the sock knitting wagon!  I used Hedgehog Fibres yarn (which is so soft and amazing) and this pattern.  The pattern worked out well for a hand dyed yarn and so easy to knit up!  Started on October 24th 2016 these have been my traveling socks.  I wanted to finish them up before the tour de sock starts!!

The only this strange about the yarn is the difference in color.  One sock looks more pink and the other more orange.

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!

Interweave

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!
