Some Recent Finished Projects!

It's about time we had a show and tell forum!

These were knit with BFL in the WWBN Smashing Pumpkins colorway. I still need to add a pocket or two onto them once I find the perfect buttons.




I knit these with chunky BlueMerino from Zenstring. They were a pleasure to knit and super quick! I frogged them halfway through and decreased a few stitches to get rid of some strange pooling. Even with having to completely restart, they took a little over 4 hours to knit. Woo hoo!




Another pair of board shorties! These were made with Selah's Imagine colorway. I hurried to make them for Easter. Then it snowed



Yet another pair of board shorties. Still need to add a pocket to these! I handdyed some aran weight BFL in blues/purples/black and left some natural color. I was going for a denim look and failed. But I still adore the outcome.



I whipped these up last week for someone I know that just had a little girl. The yarn is handspun from hand dyed roving in a thick and thin style. I think they're adorable and wish I had a little girl. *sniffle*



I needed something to do with some purewool that I would NEVER use for myself or DS, so I knitted up 2 of the pithy hats that Mary Jane wears in SpiderMan2 for a close friend of mine. They look funky just laying down, but when worn, they're pretty neato.

I guess in theory that's what they'd be called anyhow I like making baggy shorties that fall below the knee. I actually made them long enough this year where they're almost in between the knees and ankles .... hoping that I made them large enough so that they might fit next summer also.

And thank you!

Can you model the hat? I can't see it in my mind's eye. Fab work by the way!
