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!

FO 2016 Zooey Mittens

It is that time of year again - I made the annual mittens for Zooey.  This year .... She loves them.  I found the patterns hard to read in this book - but the mittens came out cute!

FO around the house!

I've been getting odds and ends done around the house.  First off I found this vintage fabric at the thrift store and I made it into a window treatment for Zooey's room.  We both love it!
Zooey wants to be Heidi for Halloween and I finished this dress for her.  Now I just need to make a dress or two for me!

FO Zooey Hat

This is the first ever item Zooey has requested.  I think it is a bit big for her - but she loves it.

Project Details:
Started September 20th and finished on the 22nd.  Size 11 needles holding three strands of yarn together.  If I were to make this again I might adjust needle size and hold 4 strands together.

In other news I've decided to stop working on the cross stitch for the rest of this year.  I need a break and want to spend more time knitting!
