Slogging it out

The thing that I am committed to finishing next is my Austin Hoodie. It's slow going but only because I keep starting and finishing new projects. Well I've decided I'm not going to start anything new until I finish this one. Sorry about the crappy iPhone pic, at night no less. I've only got the hood to go. I've gotta say that the pattern instructions for the hood are a little hard to understand. So I kinda winged it. Also, for those of you who are going to attempt this, I would suggest 2 knit edge stitches throughout the woven section. It makes for a much neater pick up area for the sleeves. It looks rather untidy for me right now. Whereas my Audrey looks much neater using the same method because it is all stockinette.

Audrey In Unst

Well it's finally finished. The button size specified in the pattern were WAY too big. So the vintage ones I ordered didn't fit. But lucky for me Tangled Yarns had the perfect ones. This was a fabulously fun knit. I will definitely make another one. Maybe Madelinetosh Pashmina?

Look what I did. I did a job on the Will Work For Yarn group. I made a Hypernova scarf from my good Ravy friend. Of course it was made using Wollmeise so it's extra nice.

The Boy Hat

Oops, I forgot to show you this super quick beanie I whipped up for my brother in law's kris kringle present.
