Part A: Finished Objects

Part A of the three part post session starts with my most recent finished objects: a square for my grandma's blanket, and an apple in a suit!

The 4 Pointed Star Square.  Remember?  It's been fixed and is finished!
Yarn: CSS in Soft Green; Lion Brand Pound of Love in Lavender; Red Heart Soft Baby Multi in Rocking Horse
Hook: I (5 mm)
Date started: 5 July
Date ended [finally]: 3 August
Well, it's finally finished, along with the corrections and everything.  I'm still not completely satisfied with it, as it's not all square but eh, it'll work.  It'll get better after it's been attached all together.

Apple in a Suit! by the lovely Sarah Hearn
Yarn: Knit Picks' Shine Sport in River and Green Apple (version 2)
Hook: E (3.5 mm)
Date started: 22 July (starting version 1)
Date ended: 3 August (ending completely with version 2, leaving version 1 out to dry)  

Remember version 1?

I searched the stashed for some lighter weight yarn and started again, this time with much better results.  As far as the pattern, it's awesome.  I had to adjust it for my weird needs, because I think I put the eyes too far apart, but other than that it came out great!  We took some more glamor shots:

I'm pretty pleased with him, though he kinda looks like a ninja. But how will he compare to Sarah's? Stay tuned!

So I'm off to watch Dawn of the Ocean on National Geographic.  Hopefully I'll be blogging more often, as I have things to show and my body's getting used to working more.  And just for you, here's a gratuitous shot of me and my work badge:
