I've been lax in posting on here of late, and it's come to my attention that several finished objects of mine have fallen through the cracks. So here's a post about all of them!
Pattern: Hawthorne by Susanna IC
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Pearl Ten
Started: October 4, 2010
Finished: November 1, 2010
This was one of the most satisfying knits I've ever completed. The pattern was perfect, the yarn was perfect, the color was perfect. I wear this scarf nearly every day.
Pattern: Fair Enough by Wendy Bernard
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted in Grey Heather, Amethyst and Aztec Turquoise
Started: November 5
Finished: November 30
Whew! My NaKniSweMo entry was a little late; after a few false starts, I chose this pattern, and I'm glad I did. It's superwarm and flattering, too. At least I think so!
Pattern: Nuthatch Gloves by Susan Anderson-Freed
Yarn: Abundant Yarn and Dyeworks Naturally Dyed Merino Sock in Scarecrow and Shibui Knits Sock in Man Blue
Started: October 29

This was the beginning of my Christmas Crunch, and what a long, hard process it turned out to be. This pattern, however, was a delight to knit, and my mom loved them so much, she actually framed one of them.
Pattern: Ringwood Gloves by Rebecca Blair
Yarn: Araucania Nature Wool Solids in Ruby

I made these for my grandma, whose hands are always cold.
Pattern: Men's Felted Moc Slippers by Julie Finocchiaro
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Eco+
Started: December 12
Finished: December 19
I made a pair of these for both my dad and my grandpa. I really liked the construction of this pattern; it was very thoughtful. And machine-felting them was easier than I would have guessed!
Pattern: Incognito by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark
Yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool in Sprout, Macaw and Raven

Finished: December 18
This was for Katie, who adored it. I learned how to duplicate stitch!
Pattern: Frosting by Thayer Preece
Yarn: Stitch Nation Full o' Sheep
Started: December 21

This was for Zach's mom. I was surprised at the quality of the Stitch Nation wool, which was purchased at JoAnn Fabrics. The color was great, but dyed my bamboo needles blue.
