Friday Finished Objects

I finished a couple of projects this week.  These are the I Want to Be a Rock Star Socks.  I used Rockstar from Blue Moon Fiber Arts in STR lightweight.  I lost one of the needles when finishing the second sock so I finished the second on using Magic Loop which I discover I kind of like.  I need at least a 40 inch needle for me to enjoy it though.

I also finished my Stripe Study shawl.  I love this.  It is light but cozy at the same time.  I used Cascade Heritage and Southwest Trading Company Tofutsies.  I love the Heritage but not overly fond of the Tofutsies, it splits really bad and is not spun evenly.  Thanks Linda for giving me enough of the Heritage to finish I really appreciate it.

I Overcame a Fear

I finally got brave enough to sew up my sweater vest.  The pieces have been finished for four months or so and I finally took the time to finish it.  I did a crochet slip stitch around the neck and armholes since I was running out of yarn.

Since I had conquered that fear, I dug out my Twist cardigan to work on again.  I have the back done and I am now working on the left front.  I will say that working with worsted yarn does go a lot faster than the fingering and lace that I usually work with.  I am hoping to finish this in time for Knit Night next month.

In Need of a Hat

It is a brisk 44 degrees here this morning, it is a good thing that I cast on for a Simple Slouchy Hat last night. I didn't get very far before going to bed maybe only three or four rows but I am motoring along today.  I am almost halfway done.  I love how fast using size 9 needles go.  Hopefully I will have a new hat before the weekend is over.
