FO Friday (2)

Friday, May 11, 2012

Thanks to Tami's Amis for hosting FO Fridays
It's Friday! That means it's time to share pics of our Finished Objects (FOs).

Last Wednesday I told you how close I was to finishing my Catkin. There you are it's now done and blocked. Ok I still have to find pretty buttons but the knitting part is done at least ;)

The Graphite looks blue-ish on the pics because my camera sucks. It's very dark gray and flashy pink. I'm really happy with the result. =) It was an intense knit. All the charts nearly killed me. I had to unravel a bit because I wasn't reading the charts right =P But it's still pretty awesome. 


I finished my second Color Affection. I love the colors and the Malabrigo Lace is soooo soft. The only problem I had with this yarn was in the short row section with all 3 colors. The yellow stitches from the previous section started to felt together a bit from the up and down on the needles. That was a bit annoying but it's hardly visible now. Just a pain to knit. LOL
Next time I really should make an extra YO between the first and second stitch though and drop it on the next row. The edge is pretty tight. I really like how soft it is- can be worn even now that it's gettting warm outside. LOVE!

Bf finished his first project- a sleeve for our tablet (pattern was originally for an iPad). *g* We changed the pattern a bit. For the flap he did an icord bind-off and added a short icord loop in the middle for the button.  It looks great for his first real project. There are some mistakes and tension problems but oh well I adore it and he's unbelievable proud- as he should be.

@Celine She finally made him join the dark side. We have Cookies...and yarn! ;)

@Mami Dearest It's so shiny *g*

@Faith Wait until you see his current WIP!

@Sandy =) thank you!

@Aurian I think the main appeal to knitting shawl for me is that I never see anyone with the same in the streets *g* THAT makes me proud

@Carmela Biscuit: Merci =) Choosing colors is always the hardest part for me
