I know that tripling up FOs is a little bit cheating, but these are small FOs and I don’t think they really need their own post. Keeping that in mind, this post will be a little bit longer than normal.
K, first off, remember this?
Well, now it looks like this…
You must forgive how bad I look in this picture. Neither of my children slept well, so I’m tired. Also, please forgive the t-shirt. I own only one proper t-shirt, but it is a really cool one…
Project: Pi Topper Chemo Cap by Corey Laflamme
Yarn: King Cole Smooth in white and royal blue
Needle: Size 7 circs and dpns
Started: November 4, 2008
Completed: December 18, 2008
Mods: Nothing, though I do want to point out that it took me so long because I had to wait for my circs to become available.
Secondly, we have our girly dice bag. Ron’s BFF and his wife are big D&D players. Ron thought it would be a good idea to make them matching dice bags. I originally was going to make them out of the same yarn, but the stuff I bought was a little too girlie, so I only used it for hers, see?
Project: Deep Sea Flower Dice Bag by Nina Hyland
Yarn: Cascade Pearls in Black, Purple, and Lavender
Needles: Size 7
Started: December 1, 2008
Completed: December 2, 2008
Mods: The original pattern calls for Noro and I think it looks better in Noro. I, however, found the Pearls on sale and it worked ok.
Project: Geek Chic Dice Bag by Pamela Northrup
Yarn: I’ve missplaced the band, but I think it was Red Heart
Needles: Size 5
Started: December 17, 2008
Completed: December 17, 2008
Mods: Nothin’, but I have got to say that I LOVE this pattern! It’s so easy and made so much sense! I made the medium, and it took almost no time at all. I’m not a dice player, but I’m thnking I need to find something that needs to be kept in a bag so I can make more!
So, thus FO post means that my Christmas knitting is officially DONE!!!! And with a week left over! I can’t believe I got it all done. You gotta think, since mid October, I have started and completed 16 projects! Admittedly, some of them were small, like the bookmarks, but till, not too shabby. Now, I’m off to knit something for myself!
