FO Post!


For: Sarah!
Yarn: Teddy Papoose Baby DK in Pink Multi; Lion Brand Yarn Cupcake in Marshmallow
Needles: US 4 (3.5 mm)
Date cast on: 16 May
Date cast off: 7 July
Cute!  I actually think I put the face on the wrong side, but I think it works better the way I did it.  Next time I would also knit another bottom fin and sew the two together so it'd be plush, but other than that a good pattern.  After you knit the tail, you have to turn and knit the body differently, so the seam is on a different side.  It was a tad confusing at first, but worked itself out nicely in the end.


Finished a little cosmetic bag thing for my boyfriend, John.  I guess it's not a cosmetic bag, but I don't know what else to call it.  Pouch?  I think this is the best one I've done, especially the zipper, and there's even a little pocket inside.  Fancy schmancy!  And all materials are from my stash; the red check is from an IKEA pillowcase I got for $0.25 at As Is; the gray I bought last summer for that 9 Patch Quilt, which I still need to finish; and the blue zipper is from two years ago when I bought over 100 zippers.  They're all in baby blue and lavender, though, but I'm happy it matched.  (Anyone need some zippers??)

Moss-Stitch Bow Headband by Stefanie FAIL
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver (tried and true!) in Cherry Red
Needles: US 8 (5 mm) though I probably could have gone down a size.
Date cast on: 16 July
Date cast off: 17 July
It came out pretty big!  It's pretty large, even for me.  If I make one for Susie, I'm going to use a lighter weight yarn and smaller needles.  It's still cute, and she still hates it, so mission accomplished.

Yarn: Lily Sugar 'N Creme in Butter Creme Ombre 
Needles: US 7 (4.5 mm)
Date cast on: 30 June
Date cast off: 9 July
Yet another Petal Cloth, this time for my friend's mom.  At first it was going into the exists-only-in-theory gift pile, but I was knitting at my friend's house and she was so excited, so I figured I'd give it to her.  I still need to deliver it.
