FO Friday!

HP is GREAT! My laptop made it's way home today...fixed! Yipee!! What a turn around, I sent it off this past Tuesday!!

Now, on to the order of the day, without having the computer around I was able to get some knitting finished!! These are Christmas gifts so I will not say who they're for, since these days you never know who's lurking! (All pattern links are RavLinks)



This is Noble Cowl, a fun, quick knit.
I may have to make one for myself.





This is Scrunchable Cowl, which I'm sure you will notice looks like it's still in the WIP stage...well, no it's finished only I wrapped it before I took a final picture. Maybe I can get the giftee to model it for me...






The Norwegian Star Hat (I didn't do the earflaps...I don't think the recipient would be real fond of them) I LOVE this pattern, a great stranding project...especially if you want to learn how to strand knit. I want one of these too, this one's made from pure alpaca yarn.




I'm so happy I found this pattern, what do you do when you need a quick project for an unexpected gifting need? The 75 yd mitts !! You'll notice that it's made from the same yarn (Patons Classic Merino--Palais colorway) I still had a little left over after both projects.

I have one more project on the needles.

Whew...5 days away! Are YOU ready??

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'

Sue said...

Wow, you've been busy! I'm sure everyone receiving the gifts will love 'em. Now to go look up that hat pattern...

I so want to learn stranding, but not ready to jump in yet

Anita said...

Everything turned out lovely! Is that stranding hard to do? I've admired it but have been scared off for some time....

Becky said...

So glad you go your computer back so quickly! All those gifts look simply marvelous.

I am ready. I bought the last of Cody's stocking stuffers today. That's all the gifts I'm buying.

Still have baking to do, though. I know what I'll be doing tomorrow.

Word Verification: berappen -- sounds like what some of us need to be doing to our gifts!

I just went and grabbed the pattern for Norwegian star on Ravelry. That looks awesome!

Wow...you've gotten a lot done! :-) I love the Norwegian Star hat. I want to try something like that. Was it relatively easy?

It's all so lovely! Look at you go!

Great on the laptop turn around.

When my new machine arrived sporting a dead pixel front and center, Asus issued the RMA without trouble. I FedExed it to California on a Tuesday and it came home to me (fixed, of course) that Thursday.
