FOs--Actual Finished Objects


Constantine, Monster Hat No. 15

Constantine is another Tri-Horn Monster. He likes black-and-white photography, enjoys Russian Literature, and has a soft spot for sugary cereals. He particularly likes snail mail, so will probably remind you to write thank-you notes if you have forgotten, or encourage you to find a pen pal.

Scarves and Such

I finished this Reverse Cable Rib scarf in time to give it to its intended recipient for Xmas. It turned out lovely, very thick and lush. The only pain was that every row was in 1 x 1 rib. If you knit you know what I mean.

More Christmas giftiness. I call these the Monet wristwarmers, because of the way the colors came out holding together two strands of sock yarn. Basically they're my usual wristwarmer pattern, with 2 x 2 rib at either end. Above is a blue pair, and below some mauve ones.

Those wrist warmers would do me well in the middle of winter, when I'm trying to work in the early hours of the morning. My fingers get so cold, I can't type...those'd be perfect.

I'm going to hunt around for a glove pattern and make me some...without the fingers, of course.

Your knitted items are fantastic!! Mexican Radio is in manhattan. The food there is amazing. A bit pricy ($17 for a burrito), so we only go on special occasions. http://www.mexrad.com/
