FO Day Two

Show Me Your FO!!!
On Day Two, FO Week is kicking into high gear!!! You ladies have been have been working hard. First up, Chris has finished Kiri!!! If you remember how she struggled with Kiri on her first go 'round, you'll know what a sweet victory this was for her. Chris has the upper hand this time - a beautiful shawl that only took one skein of Knit Picks yarn and gets credit in THREE KALs!! And knit in only TEN DAYS??? Go Chris.

Up next is Amanda. On Friday she had one sock, but as of yesterday she has a FO!!! Check out her great socks knit AND crocheted with Rumba (one of my favorite ballroom dances, by the way!!) Don't they look so cozy?? And again, knit with just one ball of yarn from Knit Picks. Way to stretch that yarn budget, girls!!

Jenn finished the cutest little baby dress knit with Lion Brand Cotton Ease. (Washability is a must for the little ones). It's so precious, and be sure to scroll down for a close up of the buttons!! She finished this just in the nick of time, as the little girl was born over the weekend. Welcome to the world.

Chrissy finished her Master Level 1 swatches!! Scroll down the to middle of her post and take a look at them all. Patterns, stripes and cables galore. How impressive are those?? Great job . . your on your way to becoming a Master Knitter!!!

I have a FO today as well.
Sweetpea's Scarf!!Men's Cashmere Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Knit Picks Panache in Moss
Cast On: 19 November 2005
Cast Off: 2 December 2005
Blocked: 30 January 2006

Pea's Christmas scarf is finally all blocked and ready for him to wear! Poor guy, he unwrapped it on Christmas, and then I promptly took it back telling him it needed to be blocked. It sat in my craft room for a month. Sorry, Sweetpea!! It's all done now and I'm very pleased with how it came out. The yarn was a joy to work with and the pattern was so simple. I could have knit it much faster, except I had to hide it from him!!!

It's been a chilly and rainy day here, the kind of day that makes you want to curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and some knitting. I'm working hard on my Felted Gift bag, which can be filled with something special for Valentine's Day. I'm also in the home stretch on Airy Scarf. With any luck, maybe I can get Tie One On finished this week too?? Can't wait to see what you guys are finishing up this week too!

Sweetpea's scarf is beautiful!! He must be so happy that he finally gets to wear it with pride and love and show off his talented sweetie's knitting. ;-) Ooh, Airy Scarf and Tie One On...I'd almost forgotten about that one! I know you can do it, Karen! Looks like you're going to have a lot of empty needles around your home soon. ;-) Thanks for all your hard work with the updates and take care! :-)

Wow you are all moving along so quickly, I wish I could have joined in! I've been working a LOT of extra hours lately - which cuts into my knitting time, but will help in the purchase of a new car! I LOVE seeing all of the lovely FO's :)
