FO Friday

I finished 3 items this week. I already showed Koolhas, so I will only be sharing the other two today.

1) Some Cloudy Day Legwarmers
Drive by baby!!!

with slouch


"where the green grass of morning, soft-sprinkled with dew,
would tickle my toes as I would go running through." (Linda Van Tassel)

Yarn: Berocco Vintage DK
Pattern: Some Cloudy Day
Mods/notes: This is the second pair I have made. I cast on only 54 stitches, and used a regular chain bind off instead of Jeny's surprisingly stretchy bind off because the last pair was too big. These seem to fit very well, so far, but I may still add elastic to the ribbing if they stretch with wear.


2) Holden Shawlette
Pre-blocked

Blocking
Post-blocking ^_^

Yarn: Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye
Pattern: Holden Shawlette
Mods/notes: Didn't have enough yarn to do 2 repeats plus 6 rows. I stopped at row 30. This was a very fast knit: I cast on February 28th and finished it in the morning of March 1st. I did knit deeeeeeep into the night on the 29th, though. I told myself "This is the only opportunity to knit lace: when the baby is asleep. Must....keep....knitting..." and nearly finished but for 2 rows!

So that's me for this week.
Check out more FO's with Tamis Amis ^_^ omg she finished the sweater !!!

  6. Cute legwarmers - they look toasty warm. I also like the look of your Holden Shawlette. Maybe I should look at that pattern as I often find lace projects interminable and tiresome as the rows get longer and longer and longer!

  7. Hee, the drive-by-baby shot is awesome---almost as awesome as the legwarmers themselves, which are a cool texture and look amazing on you, with your cool shoes and tights. :D

    Love the shawlette, too, it's so crazy-elegant.
