#50’s Nifty!

Hello again everyone! I swear #50’s the last FO for a bit.  Thank you SOOO much for being patient with me as I put them up.  This FO is another Holiday gift. I’m sure my Recipient will LOVE this Shawl. I called this project “Flat Orchid Wrap” and cannot stop staring at it. I feel in love with the pattern, and I think I may make this pattern again. Update: My grandmother LOVED the shawl!!! 🙂

This was the “Flat White Wrap” by CC Almon. I used US 3 – 3.25 mm needles, and 960 yards of Miss Babs, Caroline “Orchid.”

And yes, I DID keep singing “Sweet Caroline” as I was knitting this Shawl… And, you’re welcome for the earworm!!!

 

Anyway, I LOVE this combination of yarn and pattern.  What do you all think?

Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

#37 Is Heaven

Hello again! I’m back with another FO for 2018! This one was for another recipient for the Holidays. I called the project “Math Being a *Beep*? Not While You’re Sparkle Rich!” A bit of explanation? Sure. The Recipient I’m intending this to go to was having a hard time with one of her math classes, and I offered to make her a pair of socks, as one does…

 

I used US 1 – 2.25 mm needles and 218.5 yards of Opal, Funny “9332 Heiter.”

Again, both the recipient and I LOVE purple and sparkles, so it was perfect that I had 2 skeins that were exactly the same. Matchy matchy socks! 🙂

#36’s In A Fix

Hello again everyone!  FO #36 this year is what I called “Rainbows For Marc N’.” These are a Holiday Gift for Emptyeye. In case you were wondering the project name has a reference to Emptyeye’s family nickname.  I’m not going to explain further. If you’re in the know, I’m sure you got a chuckle from the reference… LOL.

I cast these socks on before the end of 2017, and finished them August 12th. I used 306.2 yards of West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 Ply, “Prom Paradise” and size US 1½ – 2.5 mm needles. This pattern was a vanilla sock pattern that I’ve perfected over the years for his heel.

These look like a muted rainbow.  What do you think?
