A few handknit FOs

Looking over my ravelry page, I haven't finished many projects this year. I can say that I love each project I've finished, and the desire to knit hasn't faded, after eight years. And I'm still learning new things, which is thrilling. For instance, I learned brioche this year.

FO: Exploration Station

As part of exploration station, I used lots of treasured yarns and that brioche section is my favorite part. It was challenging at first, but now I'd love to knit a project entirely in brioche stitch.

This shawl is giant, and I still haven't managed to get modeled photos (but we do still have pretty warm temperatures here in Houston).

I also just learned how to make a pom pom. I've tried once before, but this time I used the Clover tool (a gift from Amber), and now I want to pom pom everything.

Nicke's Hat with a pompom

Just look! yeah, pom poms rule. This hat is Sara's pattern: Nicke's Hat. Highly recommend!

Finally, I made a second Iz cowl, by Andi Satterlund.

FO: Iz Cowl

This is such a great squishy cowl and I wear the first one I made as often as possible in appropriate weather.

So yeah, that's the latest finishes in knitting. I'm working on another pompom hat now, so I'll share that soon!


  1. pompoms do indeed rule. Also, you need to move somewhere cold. Like London. Just for example, you understand ;-)

  2. Yay! Such pretty projects! Makes me itchy to finish my exploration station!!

  3. My knitting has been very slow, still trying to finish a hat for Lawson's birthday (which was erm 2 months ago...) but that cowl is very tempting! I do need another cowl for winter...

  4. Everything looks fantastic! Does it feel great to have several FOs in a row? (sjn821 on Rav)
