FOs and WIPs

I've been meaning to do this for the last week. Here are some pictures of FOs and WIPs.

I'll start with a couple of FOs that have been finished for a while. A shawl that is about to be sent of to my mother (as a very late birthday present). This was woven with 5/2 and 10/2 tencel from Just Our Yarn. Intended to be something light that my mother can throw on when she needs just a little bit of warmth.The weaving was finished quite a while ago, but it took me a long time to finally get around to twisting the fringe.

Next is a cabled scarf/shawl that I did as a sample for Just Our Yarn. If you catch them at a show, you may be able to see the real thing!
And then I have a pair of socks made out of Traveler that's also heading off to be a sample. This was a simple toe up using the magic cast on from Knitty, a short row heel, and a short stretch of k2 p1 rib at the top.

These are hot off the needles, just finished this afternoon.

And now the WIPs. Inspired by Ravelry--I needed to put some pictures up anyway, so I figured it was time to post them here too.

A pair of socks out of Tofutsies. I couldn't resist a yarn with chitin in it.

I also have a bag that's destined to be felted in progress. Not the best picture I've ever taken.

This bag had its genesis as the donation in a charity auction for the Canary Foundation. We put together a charity auction at work with the proceeds going to Canary, and I donated a hand made knitted or woven object. The person that won the bid chose a felted bag.

And I hate the way that blogger deals with pictures. It keeps putting them at the very top (no matter where I have the cursor) and making me move them. Since the actual space where you can view text is small, and will not scroll when you click and drag to move something that's selected, it is extremely annoying.

Hello! I'm back from the shores of Connecticut, the Land of high property taxes.

I'm loving the all of the pictures. I hope your mom loves her shawl and you know you can't go wrong if you are using JOY's tencel.

Even though I'm an anti-fringe kind of person, I don't know if it was all of that fringe from the 80s that has me scared, but I did buy a Conair braider for a few bucks from the Dollar store so I wouldn't have to fringe by hand, you know, just in case I have it in my arsenal. This thing just twirls the yarn right up, God only knows how many kids had to cut that puppy out of their hair. Ouch. :)
