I have some FOs to share that I completed last month!!!
First up, I made a mink stole...er, scarf...um...neck thing.
I was feeling a little disgruntled with the other things I had OTN not too long ago and needed a little instant gratification. I pulled out some eyelash yarn that I had in black and in brown. I have too much novelty yarn...I've had it so long that it is coming back in style...but I just wanted to make something with the stuff in the interest of using up some stash. I decided that I could make some kind of fun boa-type-neck-thing for that special occasion that called for it. Holding two strands of black and one of brown together gave it a sort of minky-ish look. It's all garter stitch and it used up nine balls of this stuff. I still have some left, despite my best efforts.
I did finish that pink thing...It's a little cardi for a special little girl:
It is inspired by the Little Daisy Cardigan pattern by Sublime. Their version is a little different, plus, it instructs you to make seven pieces that need to be sewn together. Bah humbug! I made mine top-down and seamless....I may change out the button...The one I used may be a little too big. What do you think?
I made a hat to go with the cardi...It is also from the same Sublime booklet and I followed the pattern as stated:
It's called the Cheeky Beret. I love that name!
Now, back to my knitting...
