And now, for an FO post to end all FO posts (or possibly not, I'm variable on these things):
Pattern: "Baggage" Elisa's Nest Tote
Needles: US 10.5 straights and US 6 DPNs for handles and edging
Yarn: Lion Brand Lion Cotton Solid in Seaspray, 236 yds/ 140 g (Definitely didn't use the whole thing)
This was a quick and easy knit, once I figured out what I was doing wrong stitch-count wise (forgetting to put in a YO, oops). I'm definitely going to make more, just perhaps in the round instead of flat.
Pattern:"Rattlesnake Bones" Purl Bee Beret
Needles: US 2 32" circ (KnitPicks)
Yarn: Super Awesome Handdyed from Secret Pal, 200 yds/50g (with a smidge left over, should have made it bigger)
Modifications: Used a smaller needle size 'cos I don't have any US 3 circs. MEH.
I freaking love knitting this beret. It's easy, fun and looks really neat. Mum won't let me wear it 'cos it's summer, and in her words I'd "look crazy." D: I'm using the same pattern to make Anna's "Third Time's The Charm," 'cos I frogged those AWFUL socks and started this in a stripey pattern instead. Whoo! A quick look at that:
Alright, she'll only be able to wear it on St Patrick's day (and if she ever becomes a Rasta), but whatevs. I am tired of this yarn, I never want to see it again. Oh, dang, I have a black and green skein each down in NOLA. Methinks... Destash? Anyways, there it is. I have done essentially nothing with the Chevron, but you can check out the latest photos of it on my Flickr.
