FO Posts

FO Friday

I meant to post last Friday, because I had one thing I had finished, but the boys and I went to the NC Zoo the whole day instead. ūüôā ¬†So I’ll show you that FO plus this week’s FO today!

Firstly, I finished my Ice Queen (which had been started way back in 2009!)

Pattern: Ice Queen by Romi Hill from Knitty Winter 2007
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in the color Heavenly
Needles: US 5 and 7
Started:  October 21, 2009
Finished:  March 24, 2012

Modifications: None.  I knitted the garter stitch version as written.

I started this when I first got into lace knitting. ¬†I really struggled to get through the project, so it got put into hibernation (for a long time!). ¬†I stopped about half-way through. ¬†When I pulled it back out about a month ago, it didn’t take me long to get through the last half of the project. ¬†Even so, garter stitch lace in mohair yarn is really not very enjoyable. We’ll see if I’ll ever wear it, I’m not sure I will!! ¬†But it is very delicate and pretty.

Another project I just finished the other day – which only took me maybe a few hours of work – is a fun guy:

Pattern:  Yip Yip Alien by WikiHow
Yarn:  Universal Yarns Classic Worsted in a blue color
Hook:  4.0 mm
Started:  April 4
Finished:  April 5!

I basically followed the ‘how-to’ of the pattern, but I made my guy a little bit bigger (about 3 inches across instead of 1) and did the eyes in all crochet instead of the straw method given. ¬†I think he turned out awesome!!

Is a cow? Moo!!! Yip, yip!

I have some purple yarn that would make him a great companion – you really have to have a pair of these, don’t you think??

Well, that’s what I’ve finished recently! ¬†Be sure to check out Tami’s Amis for some more FO Friday posts!

Happy Knitting!
