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. 🙂 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!!
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!
