Old FO's

So, because nothing particularly interesting is going on in my knitting (a scarf on size 0 needles moves very slowly), I decide to post some old finished objects. Below is a double knit hat I made out of some leftover yarn using the Fake Isle pattern. Because it is double knit it is super warm and reversible!

I also made an afghan when my cousin and his now wife got married last year. I found the pattern as the lace and cable afghan, but later discovered it was also called frost flowers in one of Barbara Walker's treasury books.

I'll be going in to work tomorrow; I hope everyone who takes the day off has fun!

Happy Christmas and New Year!

We certainly had a good Christmas here in St Louis with both families visiting. It was a full house with both sets of parents, an aunt and a brother, but it was a lot of fun. I now have some new woolly goodies to bring inspiration (thanks Sweetie!):

(Lorna's Laces Shepard Worsted)

(Three varieties of sock yarn)

And I got a knitting pattern book that will probably result in a sweater. I've also started a potential birthday present for someone to be left nameless (Jack was keeping me company in a blanket made by Eric's mom).

It was nice to have so much time off around the holidays. Much progress was made and new ideas if I could just have another week off!
