It’s “FO Friday!” Well today it is. 🙂 I finally have some pictures to share of Hey Teach!
Pattern: Hey Teach (My Ravelry project page.)
Started: June 29, 2009
Completed: July 31, 2009
Yarn: Just over 4 skeins of Cascade Sierra (80% cotton/20% wool)
Needles: US 6 bamboo circ
Notes: I knit this twice. First time it was way too big. Second time it came out just the right size. I get some gaping in between the buttons, so I think I’ll sew on some snaps to keep it closed. I thought about ripping out the button band and adding more buttons, but I don’t think I’d like the way it looks with additional buttons. The fit is great and I’m really pleased with the overall results!
I finished thins about 2 weeks ago now. The button band was kind of wonky, though, so I wanted to re-block it before I took pictures. I’m glad I did! Looks much better now and I was able to add a little more length to it by re-blocking.
I have to give thanks to Matt, who’s been my knitting photographer whenever I finish things (especially sweaters). He’s a sweetie and I’m glad he’s patient enough to take as many pictures as I ask him to. 🙂
This week new yarn and beads arrived. I don’t have pictures of all of it yet, but I wanted to share the yarn and beads for the next two shawls I’ll be working on.
I realized today that it’s been over a month since I last finished a pair of socks! I’ve been distracted with spinning, shawls, and sweaters lately. I’m sure I’ll get back to socks soon enough, but I’ve really been enjoying all the other things I’ve been working on. I finished the body on Liesl last night so there’s a pretty good chance I’ll be showing off another FO soon! Have a good weekend everyone! 🙂
