It’s been a while since we’ve done the parade-of-finished-objects around here. not in small part because I’m resisting figuring out what the hell broke the image uploader in wordpress with the last upgrade. Since I throw a pic of everything into flickr anyway (and I really should go back and do tags and descriptions and such, but I never really got into flickr and tend not to care *shrug*)…where was I? Oh, yes. I put it all into flickr so that it can go in my notebook on the Rav, so I can just link those pics here. Duh. I still want my blog fixed, but this is getting to be an unmanageable list anyway, so here you are:
Soon to be replaced, I’m afraid, with something that actually has insulating qualities, but I’m very pleased with it and will find something to use it for, in any case. I had several odd-sized dishcloths just sitting there begging me to give them a strap. So I did.
The Magic Scarf:
My oldest daughter decided that this would go to my husband. She’s very concerned that Daddy be warm enough. She’s a sweet kid. I used this pattern: Magic Scarf. I am ridiculously pleased with it. Simple, but it gave me great practice with basic knitting skills and the husband claims it’s the coolest scarf he’s ever seen. He’s a sweetheart, too.
I found it almost impossible to get a good pic of this, but I’m terribly excited about the way it came out. It’s technically not quite a FO, since it still has to be readied for hanging, but I’m counting it because the creative work is done. Anyone know how to photograph black fiber successfully? ‘Cause I’m stumped.
And last but not at all least, Totes For My Unruly Children:
This is from a pattern I got as a Ravelry Download (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/enero-crochet-tote) and modified to get the sizes I wanted. I needed to use up some cotton that the girls damaged and I was feeling a little diabolical, so they got something to motivate them to pick their stuff up…disguised as a present! Bwahahaha!
I think that’s it for the moment. Enough, though, yes? LOL.
