FO Friday, Post Holiday Edition


Well, another winter gifting season has come and gone, which means I have hand-knits to show you.  I'm trying something new this year with the blog, as I was such a terrible blogger last year, only typing up four very photo-full entries.  I'm going to aim to (maybe... we'll see how far I actually get) post at least twice a week on Wednesdays and Fridays for WIP (Work in Progress) Wednesdays and FO (Finished Object) Fridays.

Today, though, lots of photos again because of all the stealth projects I gifted.

First, a pair of gifts for Redhead Sister's baby, due sometime this month, Team Yellow (they decided not to find out whether the baby is a boy or a girl):

Pompom Hat: (I love how these look on itsy bitsy people) Knit in a soft green colour (actually in the green left over from the frog hat I knit for Elder Sister's son).

Little Red Sweater: This one actually shares yarn with Jo's Little Red Riding Hood cape

I also knit another GAP-tastic Cowl for one of my sisters-in-law.  The picture absolutely does not do justice to the colour, which is a lovely, rich wine.
She has expressed that she loves it because she no longer has to tuck ends into her coat or worry about fringe getting caught in the zipper.  The colour looks wonderful on her.

And, the knit object that I am most proud of on this post:


An owl pillow that I designed and knit for Elder Sister's daughter who received a quilt from my mother made from this fabric:

I am so pleased with how it turned out since I designed it (all by myself! from scratch!)

I did finish a couple of other things since my last post, but I think this is more than enough for this post.  I may show them at a later date.
