FO Friday

 I haven't worked on any significant projects over the past couple of months but I have knocked out quite a few smaller projects.  I have actually completed a few projects for Holiday 2014.  The decision was made to take off some of the pressure that comes along with holiday knitting by starting early with the gifts.  I hope to do one small project a month minimum.

These are the Feather Lace Boot Toppers and I loved working on these.  This is a quick and satisfying project.  I used the cream color Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool with US 7 and 8 needles. 


 
 
 
This is just a plain old garter stitch scarf but in the really pretty Lion Brand Amazing.  I used 2.5 skeins with US 6 needle.  The colorway is #213.  I may have a hard time giving this one away.

 
 
This is an open stitched scarf done in Noro Silk Garden #309.  I added a little ruffle on the ends.  This is done on US 8 needles.

 
 
Here is another garter stitch scarf with yarn overs.  As you can see I tried to do a little flower pattern within the scarf but it doesn't show as well.  Next time I will use a larger size needle.  This is done on US 9.  The yarn is Lion Brand Tweed Stripes.  I have used two skeins in the colorway Caribbean.
 
 
 
 
 
Another garter stitch scarf done in 3 skeins of Loops & Threads in cream.  I used US 13 needles.  This is a really long and oh-so-soft scarf. 
 
 
 
 
A skinny garter stitch scarf for a co-worker.  The yarn is Lion Brand's Fisherman's Wool in beige.  She brought in the yarn and told me she wanted a skinny scarf but not too plain.  There is something about this colorway that is a bit rough and itchy compared to the beige.  It would drive me crazy to wear it around my neck but she loves it.  It works for her.
 
 

 
 
 
I hope to post my little card next week.  Hopefully I will have all of the finishing done.
 
Have a Great Weekend !

You've been a busy "little" knitter. All the projects look great. I can see the lacy flowers --- they are adorable.

Happy knitting!

I am coveting those boot toppers. Just lovely. And the colors of that Amazing yarn is gorgeous! Works really well with garter stitch. Your friends and family members are lucky to be the recipients of so much knit love :)

So nice to see you posting again!
