Yes, it’s a Free-For-All Friday and I’ve got a few fun things to post…Maybe something along Sillylittlelady’s post from today: FFFO* Friday 🙂 I’ve been keeping up with her journey on her gorgeous orange sweater and it’s a beautiful finished project. While browsing my bloglovin feed this morning, I came across several FO Friday posts and I’m feeling inspired…
You guessed it (if you read Wednesday’s post) I finished up the Midsummer Baby Blanket for my soon-to-arrive niece!!!! Check it out!!
I love the colors.
I love the texture.
I’ve even weaved in all the ends.
Now I just need to block this. It’s cotton and little out of whack. I’m hoping a good blocking will even it all out.
I also managed to finish up my Yarn Bliss Super Secret Swap project. It was a pair of the Gefn Mitts by Kristen Ashbaugh-Helmreich. I had the pattern in a Knitscene Accessories 2014 magazine. I actually bought this magazine at Sophie’s a while back to knit this shawl in a gray and yellow. Mayhaps I can start that soon…Anyway, back to the awesome swap project and package I sent:
The mitts in the blocking bath:
Here they are, well at least one of them on my hand since I had to model and take pictures.
I loved that I didn’t need to knit separate mitts for the right and left hands, I just knit the same one twice.
And finally the whole package I sent:
My swap partner Heather loves greens and blues hence the Manos Lace I thought she may be able to do the Dreambird shawl she’s been wanting to do. She likes caramel in her coffee so I included some for her. And some stitch markers. Who doesn’t need those 🙂
What have you finished lately? Would you want to be involved in a yarn swap?
v’s & bumps,

Very pretty projects! I love the colors in the blanket and that blue of the mitts is gorgeous!
Thank you! I’m itching to knit myself a pair of the mitts in the blue as well…I think I’ve got plenty of yarn left over 🙂
Lovely projects and lovely colours – I love the blanket.
Thank you! 🙂
