Use the Force!!!!

Made this little Yoda hat for a friend's grandson, who is 4-5 months old.  He and his dad are going as Yoda and Luke Skywalker(the dad).  Got it in the mail yesterday.  What a hoot!

Another one bites the dust!!

Just finished another UFO last night!!!
This started out as Mara.  When I got to the ruffle part, I just couldn't make myself kfb for a total of 500+ stitches, then K2P2 for 5 inches!!!  SO...................I put on a skinny ruffle, and I like it!!!

Color not so good.  If the sun comes out today, I'll get some outside pictures!!!

The LONG road to finishing a UFO

FINALLY, after starting this shawl over a year ago, I got this beauty done!!!!  It's a 10 row repeat, with either one stitch increased or one stitch decreased every 10 rows.  It got to be a little monotonous, so I put it down last fall, and made LOTS of other things.  Last week, after Knit Nite, I picked it up and got it finished in five days!!!  I was at the halfway point then.  It's around 84 inches long, and 11 inches wide.  It is a pattern from Jane Austen Knits Summer 2012.

One more major UFO to finish up, then it's back to knitting for Christmas gifts, and getting some things in my queue started (and finished!)
