FO Scarf!

I've been working on this for what seems like forever. I had to frog it once because the needle size I picked was too small. But once I got rolling it didn't take too long.

Project Details:
I used left over gray and white wool no-name yarn. Took just shy of 400 yards. I used size 9 needles. Started on August 17 and finished on October 30. This is the simple Noro Striped Scarf. I cast on 30 stitches.

W.I.P Sole Sisters Hat

I'm in an exchange and for winter we are doing hats. I finally found yarn, pattern, and gauge. It has taken me a while.

The pattern came out of a cable set of patterns on Ravelry and I'm excited to do most of the patterns!

W.I.P Non-noro stripe scarf

I have a few things on the needles that really should be finished up. This has been waiting for me to work on it. I'm going to try to finish it by next Monday.

F.O Baby Lebowski Sweater

Project Details:
Started on September 20th and finished on October 16. Longer than I would have thought but so worth it. Size 5 needles and cheap lion brand acrylic yarn (figure machine washing is in order). I made the smallest size and I think this will fit a 2 year old.

W.I.P Spinning Friday

I'm trying to get a bit more spinning done. I've decided to sell one wheel and just use my old faithful travel wheel.

2 oz done and I'll try to get the last bit done tomorrow!

This fiber is loud and fun. I think will make a perfect set of fingerless mitts and hat for a holiday gift!

F.O. Ruby Sweater & NEWS!

Well first things first - Mike and I are expecting. I've waiting a while to tell you lovely readers, I hope you understand. We don't know the sex yet so I've decided to start working on projects that are gender neutral.

Project Details:
Ruby Sweater (free off ravelry), it is my own yarn Serenity Stitches Sunspots dyed in a fall color called Pumpkin Patch. Dk weight yarn on size 7 needles (took about 230 yards) this top down sweater was SUPER fast and easy. I started on September 27 and finished on October 6th. I made the sweater for 6-12 months since the kid is due in April and I figure it should be at least sort of warm by then.

I figured out that all my runners and table clothes were destroyed in the house fire. So I needed something for Halloween!

Quick and fits perfect!
