FO Friday!!!

Oh my!  We have a bunch of beautiful finished objects today!

First up is Jeanette, who stopped by to show us her recently finished cardigan.  It's "Peasy" by Heidi Kirrmaier, which can be purchased from Ravelry here.  Jeanette used the Sincere Sheep Luminous, a lovely blend of Polwarth wool and Tussah silk.  And she wears it so well!


Next, Caron's husband sports his new scarf.  Caron invented her own pattern using Classic Elite's Silky Alpaca Lace, a long circular needle, hundreds of stitches and a lot of determination.  The results were fantastic and the wearer looks very snuggly, warm and pleased.


Ayn used Millamia, the wonderful, machine-washable sportweight wool, to crochet this "Pluto Pullover" from Interweave Crochet Winter 2013.  She changed the pattern and a bit radically, so that here there is no asymmetrical placket and also no stripes.  The alterations worked splendidly and it looks gorgeous on her.


Michelle brought three finished objects in to share with us.  First, we have these "Welted Fingerless Gloves" from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  She knit these out of some multicolored stash yarn.  Lovely.


She also knit this fine-looking colorwork hat.  She knit this from some stash yarn and pattern and it was so smart-looking that we just wanted to show it off.


And finally, Michelle knit this "Woolly Wreath & Garland" by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  She used the Erika Knight Fur Wool, which is nubbly and furry and fun all on its own and then the pattern has you create even more loopy fun.  She is prepared for the holidays already!


Sharon used the Kauni Wool 8/2 Effekgarn to lovely effect here in her "Swallowtail," a pattern from Interweave Knits Fall 2006 which is also available for free here.  She modified it to make it a bigger shawl and that worked out really well.  It's a beautiful garment and the color variations work very nicely.


Joanne used Madeline Tosh Pashmina to make her "Cable Scarf" from Knit Simple Magazine Holiday 2012.  This pattern is a bit of a beast, casting on a few hundred stitches, working ribbing and cables sideways in length.  But, the result is a fabulous, squishy, sproingy, bouncy and warm scarf. 

Here's a close-up of the cables.  So beautiful.  The color name for this yarn was William Morris.

Thanks to everyone for showing off their knits and crochets!
