Final FOs of 2016

These two baby sweaters were finished for quite awhile, but I hadn't washed and blocked them or photographed them.  The first one is Little Coffee Bean Cardigan, the yarn is Patons Canadiana in winter white and grape jelly.  Ravelry details here.

The next one is Basic Cardigan from the book Cabin Fever.  The yarn is Diamond Merino Superwash DK in a mauve color.  I had enough yarn to make a hat as well, I used this pattern, details here.

I made an Exeter hat and trigger finger mittens for Hubs with Briggs & Little Heritage in dark grey. One of the dollar stores in town carries B&L, but only Heritage and Tuffy.  They sell a lot of it.  It's only $4/skein, good deal.  There's another place in town to get it, but they sell it for $5.49, I think, but they have a bigger variety.  Details here.

I whipped up two more pairs of the mitts with B&L Heritage in seafoam and brown heather.  Details here.

Happy Knitting and Happy New Year!

Catch Up

Always playing catch up, lol.  I know I've still got a couple of things that have been done for awhile now, but they still need to be photographed.  But in the meantime there are some others.  First is a pair of heavy work sock made with Briggs & Little Tuffy. Ravelry details here.

Trigger fingers mittens made with Briggs & Little Heritage, the pattern is an old Patons pattern.  Details here.

The last couple of pairs of socks for the friend that gave me a bunch of yarn to knit up for her.  This pair was Garnstudio Drops Fabel, details here.

This pair is Berroco Sox, details here.

Christmas socks for Hubs, Patons Kroy coal cuff, heels, and toes, eclipse stripes for the main part.  His feet are too big to get a whole sock out of one skein of Kroy.  Details here.

More Trigger Finger mittens for Christmas gifts, same pattern, same yarn, details here.

And lastly, thin work socks made for a friend who gifted them for Christmas gifts, the yarn is Sandnes Garn Sisu Solids, details here.

Happy knitting!!
