Finishing Friday

January 30, 2009


It’s that time again.. time to announce my finishes for the week…

This was my first week where I didn’t finish an in progress WIP aka UFO from prior to the start of 2009…  it actually somewhat bothers me that I couldn’t make the time to get something from before done… but it’s all good really.. many of my remaining UFOs are rather big projects… that will likely take a good amount of time to finish… and since I am keeping the theme of finishing in my mind.. I did put in some work on the Linus Project Blanket that I expect to gift to my Cousin for his baby due in April…  so all is not lost.. I did work on a UFO this week.

Instead though of concentrating solely on those older UFOs this week I concentrated on ‘obligation’ knits.. aka.. gift knits…

First…  the cocoa swap buddys that my partner wants…  my partner and I KNOW who we each are… as the hostess of this swap last year I accidentally gave myself away to my partner… and the process of organizing and running the swap was a bit much for also keeping myself a secret to my pal ended up being too much.. so this year I opted to just swap with my co-hostess and great friend Holly… who happens to be insanely busy right now herself… so it all works out for the best for both of us.  Her two boys really wanted a marshmallow.. so I knit them each one…


and then knit an additional marshmallow for a Pay it forward friend (the middle guy in the above picture)… I dressed him up a bit with a wintery hat since she’s a northerner…I unfortunately haven’t paid it forward to her yet though as we’ve been a bit trapped at home due to our recent storm.  I should be able to get it in the mail to her early next week.


And Finally, I knit my friend Tracey a pair of fingerless mittens… I do hope she’ll love them as much as I loved knitting them.  The pattern was super easy and a very quick knit.


I’m gifting them this afternoon at the sock hop at school for the end of Catholic Schools Week.

I still have one other gift knit I’m working on … for my cocoa swap pal… but that cannot be highlighted here until the swap is over 🙂  I hope to get it done by next week… 🙂

    Love the marshmallow guys. And, was just thinking of making myself some fingerless gloves. Those are so pretty. So, I went to the sight to get the pattern. Little confused about the thumb gusset – what does m1 and sm stand for? I have some off white yarn at home and need to get started 🙂 .
    Are you back to running (of course not outside!)? My son and family live in Scotrun (by Camelback) so, I know how the weather can get up there in the mountains.

    Those marshmallows are just too darned cute!!!

    And the mitts are gorgeous. I’ve been looking at that pattern and think I’ll have to do a pair.

    Those mitts are wonderful. Love the eyelets and picot edge.

    I’m wondering if you’ve made it to AC Moore yet? Your list still says you are going today 🙂 Have a great day and another productive week. g

    You’re going to post those mitts when I get up a Mr. Linky right? I like the picot and the eyelets on these. Even though you didn’t work a ton on UFO’s …you got a lot of finishing done.
