FO Friday January 15th 2016
Finally I am posting a FO Friday collection!! I have been neglecting this recently and there are a few things I finished up in the end of 2015 and already in 2016 (mostly carry-overs from 2015, but finishes none the less...)
First to close up 2015 I finished up (mostly) both of the Advent knits I was doing.
1) My Advent socks. I ran out of the cream color for the base yarn so I ended them early and gave them to my sister for Christmas.
2) My Advent scarf - I finished this by the end of 2015 but it still needs blocking. I need to get that part done!! I'll post some blocking before and after pictures once I get that done!
2016 is off to a good start!
1) My first finish is 2016 is a new design that I completed the knitting on and now have the pattern up for testing on Ravelry. This is the first of four designs that will be part of an e-book (and individual designs) which will be available later this year (hopefully not too late!) The first design is The Four Seasons: Autumn. This design is top-down and includes a mirrored cable design on each sock.
2) The second finish of 2016 is another design in The Four Seasons group. This one is Spring and I still need to finish writing up the pattern and get it tested. I am aiming to get the testing started this weekend!
3)The third finish to start off 2016 is a scrap blanket that I began in 2013 (nothing like taking things at a leisurely pace!!) I had all the squares made up quite some time ago and began putting them together a few months back (and then put is aside again...) Anyway a friend of mine at work is expecting a baby in February and some others at work planned a baby shower for her - perfect incentive to get this done!! (and she loves it ♥ )
