Flurry of FOs on Friday

I’ve been doing quite a bit of knitting lately – hence the lack of blog posts – and figured it’s about time I share a few photos. I’ve got two shawls plus a quick-knit hat to share. Both shawl projects were created for coworkers and were the perfect combination of mindless and beautiful output. The hat was intended for Lizzie but, well, it wound up far too large for her, as you’ll see.

First up, my second Different Lines shawl, made from Spud and Chloe Fine. I’ll admit I’m not big on the yarn itself, but it was on sale and really great colors.

I only had 400 m of each color, so I only managed twelve of the cream-colored rows. It wound up just the perfect size for the coworker it was made for; she’s worn it every day when it’s chilly in our office.

Second project was my first ever Lacy Backtus, knit in Hempathy. The coworker I gave this to has a wool allergy, so was a perfect recipient for an item made in this bright blue I’d grabbed on sale during a trip to Denver.

(Excuse the just-got-out-of-the-shower look. I, well, was just out of the shower.)

Final project is a Short-Rows Sideways Hat, made in scraps of Ms Babs from a cowl project I made a few months ago.

Up next: A Foolproof cowl for one of Lizzie’s daycare teachers
