It’s been awhile… but I have an FO!

11 12 2007

Okay… So I did survive finals week, then I spent lots of time doing absolutely nothing. 🙂

The Sunday night before finals I was working away on the Welt Fantastic socks while studying and I decided to see if I could put it on… nope. Couldn’t get it over my heel. Oops.

DSC02046I KNEW one inch into this sock that it was going to be close…. two inches in, I knew there was NO way… but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I measured my foot, swatched, followed the pattern. So when I got home that night I frogged it and started another pair of socks. I can’t study for finals without something to do. So I cast on the Widdershins pattern from knitty. I’m doing two socks on two circs and these WILL FIT!

DSC02045I also recently started a scarf for one of the girls I tutor. Nice, semi-easy pattern on size 6 needles.

I had my last final on Thursday morning and so when I got up on Friday the first thing I did was go to Yarnia and buy yarn to make a sweater. Yea… okay… so it wasn’t exactly allowed cause of my yarn diet; however, I had two gift cards from Yarnia for my birthday so I figured instead of buying two pairs of sock yarn… I’ll spend a little of my own money and get enough yarn for a sweater! So I did. DSC02037The pattern I picked is Essential Stripe and called for something like 1500 yards so I figured 7 skeins of Cascade 220 is 1550 yards, I’ll get an extra skein to me safe. So I got a bunch of yarn, and I have the feeling I’m going to have 1-2 skeins left over, but that’s okay. I can always find something else to make out of it when I’m done. It’s pretty yarn, and I’m glad I bought enough seeing as how the rest of that color sold out the next day after I bought my yarn.

Oh! And now for the FO! I finally finished my sister’s Birthday gift today. I was supposed to have it done back in October, but you know how school ruins your life. 😉
It’s the Vegan Scarf pattern from knitty. I used TLC Heathers, Patons Allure and Patons ChaCha for the yarns. I basically just followed the pattern. It wasn’t too bad, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a first time project. Definitely lots of sewing things involved. All the extra little details are over on my ravelry account for those of you who are interested.
