FO Holiday Knitting

Project Details:
I'm trying to get a little non-baby knitting done. I figured I'd make a quick set of mitts. Using size 6 needles and one skein of Elsebeth Lavold Angora. I started on November 25 and finished today November 26. Super fast and really cute!

FO Baby Sock

I didn't get much knitting done over Thanksgiving break. But I did get these little guys done.

Project Details:
Started on November 22 and finished on November 24. Super fast knit and free pattern on Ravelry. I used the same yarn as the little leg warmers. I might have to make some more.

Small projects like these are just so darn fast!

Kicking FO Land!

Project Details:
I used sock yarn to make this sock monkey. Started on November 12th and finished on November 20th. I re-worked the increases to be more like how you do toe up socks and I put buttons as the eyes. I hope little baby likes it!

FO Kermit Sweater!

Project Details:
Started on November 5th and finished on November 12. The buttons were the last and we were just waiting for the news on boy/girl. The buttons Mike got me in Japan! I used Rowan Cotton Glacé and it took 2.5 skeins on size 4 needles. The pattern is free on Ravelry and is called Garter Yoke Sweater.

RV Weekend Part II

Well next on my list is this fun little guy. I pulled out fingering yarn and then saw the pattern was rewritten for DK. I was pretty worried, but after talking to one of the best knitters I know, she assured me that a little stuffed animal wouldn't notice the difference (and she was correct).

So far I've finished two legs and a tail!

F.O. Spin Me Right Round!

The roving. Superwash Merino from a club I was in 2 years ago.


Project Details:
I'm still not in love with superwash but this one was okay (didn't get too puffy when I washed it). This was from Christina Marie Potter's fiber club (which I was in a few years ago). The colorway is Cotton Candy (and I think that is pretty fitting). I split the roving to try and get the longest possible stripes I could get (which I think worked well). 4oz which gave me 326 yards of Sport/DK (almost DK but just a little shy). I'm thinking about making mitts for my baby sister with it!

Maybe I'll get another few yards done before the end of the year!

F.O. Caireen Hat

Project Details:
This is for my Sole Sisters swap buddy. I started it on October 22 and finished it on November 4th. I used Mirasol Yarn Nuna (which is a blend of silk, wool and bamboo). My buddy wanted something fun and fashionable (so I hope this fits the bill). I blocked it on a dinner plate (which worked perfect). I only used 191 yards for this hat (which means I have a whole skein left - what to do with it now??).

About to cast on some new and fun projects!
