Long overdue FO’s

As I was enjoying my lovely (and much needed) siesta yesterday, I was awoken by a pounding on the door. Since I didn’t hear anyone screaming “search warrant”, I thought it was o.k. to answer. Two boxes! YEAH! The first held this:

book front

And some things found inside. I can finally share these FO’s from last year. The wonderful Isela asked me to help her out with a little project and this is what happened:

book 028

Pattern: Cascading Shawl
Designer: Me (squeeeeee)
Book: Loom Knitting Pattern Book (please support Isela and her husband and buy it from them)
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden color 84
Loom: Regular gauge with at least 59 pegs. I used a Decor Accents Baby Afghan Loom.
Start and Finish: I took notes on this, but can’t find my notebook right now.

This was not the pattern I started with in my head, but after trying this and that, it’s what happened. Same goes with this:

book 037

Pattern: Hat and Scarf Set
Designer: Me (squeeeeee)
Book: Loom Knitting Pattern Book (please support Isela and her husband and buy it from them)
Yarn: Bernat Softee Chunky in Hot Blue, Hot Lime, True Yellow, Hot Pink and Too Purple
Loom: 60 peg regular gauge loom. I used a Decor Accents Adult Hat Loom.
Start and Finish: I took notes on this to, but can’t find my notebook right now.

This started out in pastel colors with Knit Picks Palette on a fine gauge Mini Wonder Loom, but quickly changed. I mean really… fingering weight and a tight deadline. Ick!

Yes, the hat and scarf are for children. No, I don’t know what I’m going to do with them. Contest? Auction on E-bay to donate to the Red Scarf Project? Right now I’m tossing ideas around. What do you think?

I’ll do a proper review on the book in the coming week. (Of course it’s wonderful)

The other box? That’ll have to wait too.

You can however head on over to Romancing the Yarn and enter the contest. (see the June 30th post) They’re giving away a prize a day to celebrate their two year blogging anniversary. And I won already. Go now!

Happy Sunday!

  1. Squeeeee indeed! You’re famous, rather than simply infamous. The shawl is fabulous! I like the little hat and scarf, too. Will they fit your dog?

  2. How very cool that you are a published designer! Squeeeeee! An auction sounds nice or isn’t there a request for childrens’ knits in Autumn but I can’t remember the name.

    Happy Sunday!
