Finished Goods

Oh, my! It has been a while since I’ve participated in Ginny’s yarn along.  In my blogging absence I’m pleased to say there have been three FFOs (Finally Finished Objects – I just made that up) and two UFOs (Unfinished Objects) that I’ll share today. That brings my ravelry project total to thirteen… (Go ahead and laugh.)

First up the Annabel Cardigan.  Remember when I started it, two years ago!  Well, I finished it in the fall! Yay! I gifted it to Teal.

Wigeon’s Immie Tee!  I consider this my magnum opus as far as knitting goes.  I started it in blue so long ago, but frogged it and ordered the Quince and Co. yarn.  I love it!

Mr. Mallard’s Turkish Bed Socks.  I have quite an obsession with these socks, especially because a talented knitter at my local yarn store came up with a way to knit them WITHOUT seams. Many thanks to my mother who gifted me the class so I could learn how!

This is the Peak Hat.  I was gifted this class, too! (Thanks mom! I did end up frogging due to a hole I couldn’t figure out, but I look forward to knitting it again.)

Pintail chose black for his Children’s Bulky Neck Down Jacket. (I was a little bummed, because black, but I’m knitting it for him and that’s what he wanted.) I saw this pattern on Our Ash Grove and thought it was darling! I knit it to the pockets, but felt like it was too roomy, so rather than frog, I started on the other end of the yarn and knit it out.  Then I had two jackets to try on and determine which size fit better!

Teal and I are reading The Bronze Bow.  Pintail and I are reading Starry River of the Sky.

Thanks for visiting!

Bed Socks and a Bit of Gluttony

I have one Turkish Bed Sock nearly finished! I need to sew up the two side openings and then it will be done.  I have already cast on the second sock though, because I decided to finish up all the seams together at the end.  It has been a fun pattern to knit and I have yarn ready for a second pair.  (But I won’t be using said yarn for a while because I have THREE other projects I’m ready to cast on!  I’ve been a bit of a yarn glutton this past week.  Scroll down to the end of this post and you’ll see what I mean!)

Teal and I learned how to do a provisional cast on today.  She has just begun a pair of Camp Out Fingerless Mitts.  (The picture directly above is the pattern photo.)  They are really cute, aren’t they?

Pintail is still plugging away on his Spring Valley Horse, a pattern we got from Melisa Nielsen.  Oh, he just has to finish this soon.  It’s dragging on like nobody’s business!

I have done a little yarn hoarding this week (as I alluded to at the beginning of the post.)  I bought yarn to knit Wigeon this sweater.

It’s the Immie.  Oh, you’ve heard me talk about that before, right?  Lot’s of times!  Yeah, well I got frustrated and frogged the whole thing.  Now I’m starting over with the Quince yarn.  I have to hustle because the pattern only goes up to age two and Wigeon’s already there!

While on the Quince site, I was tempted into buying yarn for these mitts.

I love them.  They are so cool looking I think!

I had a ten dollar credit at my local yarn store, so I bought a skein of Madelinetosh to make the Honey Cowl because everybody’s doing it.

And last (but certainly not least!) I was gifted with enough gorgeous MillaMia to make Wigeon this beautiful dress.

So much to do and so little time!  What are you working on?

Thank you for dropping by!

Mrs. Mallard

P.S. I never really wanted to have a stash.  I always intended to buy and knit as I went along, but here I am.  Now I have a stash.  Now I have projects looming. AH!  The stress of it all!
