FO Friday - 9/28/2012

My bloggy hiatus is still in effect, but I have some things to share; so, I thought I'd put them out there.

I recently returned from a little trip that involved knitting.  I will tell y'all all about it very soon.  Monday's picture had something to do with it. I will not be giving specifics about the picture, though, because what happens on Tancook Island, stays on Tancook Island...sorry.

While on said adventure, I made three hats.

The Tancook Hat - a Lucy Neatby pattern, using Kauni yarn and 8mm circulars:

A hat for Barrie - an improvised pattern using MacAusland's Woollen Mills 3-ply medium naturals yarn and 4.5mm needles:

A hat for Patsy - another improvised pattern, using Briggs & Little Softspun yarn and 4.5mm needles:

Barrie and Patsy owned the cottage where I stayed during my adventure.  They are marvelous people who happen to be from Massachusetts and they happen to spend several months of the year at their cottage in Nova Scotia.

I finished a gift except for grafting the toes.  (Hence the not-so-artistic, artistic shot...)  I used Froehlich Wolle Special Blauband and two 2.25mm circular needles:

I did finish another project, but I don't have a picture of it, and it is currently residing in Nova Scotia.  I hope to be receiving a shot of it soon, at which time, I will share it with y'all.

Since I didn't do a WIP Wednesday post this week, I am going to go ahead and show two partially completed projects.  First, I am so close and yet so far away from finishing the Tara socks. 

They are my April 2012 what's a few more weeks?  I think I have about forty rounds left to go...

And then, there are the September 2012 socks, aka Pillars.  The heel flap is next:

Don't ask me about the August 2012 socks.  They've been banished to the corner like a naughty school child.  I don't really know why, except that I do not like the needles they are on and need to finish the Tara socks to use those.

So, that's me...How about you?

MK out.
