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!

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.
