So, here’s an FO post for the month of January! I’m so excited that I got so much done!
First, the gloves for my mom. I spun the yarn (Cloverleaf Farms BFL) and then knit her these mittens for her birthday, which were mailed out this afternoon. Here’s a dorky picture of me wearing them:
Next is a scarf I crocheted for my friend Nidhi, whose birthday was last week. Yes, I do crochet! It’s a common misconception that I’m knit-only. These are a Tunisian pattern called Tunisian Resolution Scarf. I made it out of almost an entire skein of Malabrigo Sock, double stranded. It ended up being kind of short for a scarf (about 3.5 feet), but Nidhi is short and I’m sure she won’t mind.
Right now, I’m working on sewing up my Apres Surf sweater. I’ve got one sleeve done, and when I tried it on in front of my friends, they were so excited to see it come together! It’s nice to have friendly cheerleaders when you’re facing the daunting task of seaming a sweater. Here’s what it looks like right now:
Hopefully, it will be done by tomorrow (and it definitely will if we get this supposed snow storm and classes get cancelled…one can only hope!)
