The Usual FO Parade
First up is the Swallowtail Shawl from Interweave Fall 2006. This was a great pattern. There was absolutely no part of this shawls that I did not enjoy knitting. Even the nups weren't bad at all. It is out of Headwater Wool fingering so it is a good length (close to 70"). I wore it to school last Tuesday I received many compliments.
Next up is a cute hat for a co-worker. At the bar on Friday she asked how long it would take me to knit her a white hat with a pom-pom. I had some cream wool in the stash so it really took me no time at all.
It is a super cute pattern called "He Gives Me Butterflies" I think if I did it again I would convert it to in the round rather than seaming it up but she loved it on Monday. Her boys (6 and 9) didn't understand how the hat could have been made by someone (in their world everything comes from the store). I've been working on converting their Mom to the Knit side but she is rather stubborn.
This one is for me. It is - of course- Center Square from Knitty. It is very cozy and it was a very quick knit.
I really have to figure out the two handed stranded technique. It would make this a lot easier.
I'm working on a pair of mitts to match.
This is the BF's handspun sock in progress. The yarn has turned out very pretty in the knitting. The leg is in a pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks and the foot is in plain knitting. It's going to take me a while to finish these because of the BF's clown feet.
The colours are a little more muted than they show on my monitor.
Tomorrow is the start of a new term at school so I'm not sure when I'll post next but I'll do my best!
