FO Friday

1) Fingerless Gloves
Materials: Patons Kroy Socks, Colorway "Burnished Sierra Stripes" - 1 skein
Needles: Size 2
Notes: These started out as Spiraling Tube Socks for my son, but I quickly realized that he wouldn't like the texture on his feet. I switched to knitting flat for the thumb opening. I used up the whole ball, minus a few yards. The color makes me think of autumn, and they are a very nice fit for me.

2) Convertible Owl Mittens
Materials: Cascade Ecological Wool
Needles: Size 6, 7, and 9
Notes: Very quick knit. The free pattern is for toddlers, but used bulky yarn to make them for myself. Pattern is mostly in chart form, but easy to follow. I chose to make the tufted top and convertible style.
Flip tops!!

3) Crocheted Washcloth

Materials: Peaches n Cream Discloth cotton
Hook: E
Notes: Just a simple single crochet washcloth on 27 chains; I'm making a set for my mom's birthday. This is only my second time doing a border, but hopefully I'll get better at it with time!

4) Lapghan

Materials: Lion Brand Homespun, 4 skeins
Needles: Size 50
Notes: Knitted half the length of the 6 Hour Afghan. Very quick project that did indeed only take about 3 hours. It was very fun to see the project grow. I plan on making a bigger blanket for myself by knitting 2 and seaming them together. It does curl slightly, though I added a one stitch selvedge (2 or 3 looked ridiculous) I cast on much too tightly but I have decided to call it done. This is going to my aging Aunt for an early birthday present. (Her birthday is still a few weeks away)

That's it for this week. Click here for more FO's with Tamis Amis.


  1. Wow, lots of finished objects :) Love the mitts (when you say your son wouldn't like the texture, do you mean the feel of the purl bumps against his feet/legs? If so, google princess soles, it might be an option for him - I have a post about them so you might find me through that google search too!)

    The lapghan looks lovely and cosy, and I adore the owl mittens, so cute!

  2. Everything looks fantastic! I particularly love the fingerless gloves. The colors are gorgeous!

  4. I love the owl mittens - wish I could do color work in knit. The blanket is awesome for only taking 3 hours and your socks into fingerless gloves are cool. I love autumn colors. Don't they make you feel all warm inside?
