Shall we glance at some FOs?

I really do finish things sometimes. Here are a few of my recent finished objects. This next photo looks like a pair of underpants at first but look closer…

I knit this beauty for my friend Pat when she passed the bar last year. It's the Forget-Me-Not Shawl by Shui Kuen Kozinski and I found it pleasingly geometric, yet super classy. I knit it in elann's Peruvian Baby Silk, which I can heartily recommend — it's a light fingering weight alpaca/silk blend, and knits into something light as air and surprisingly warm. The perfect summer evening shawl. So pleased.

Also really happy with this afghan I knit for my cousin Cindy's wedding to Owen.
It's Lion Brand's Nature in Natural afghan, with a few twists to make it come out neater and prettier, and a little extra yarn to make it longer (Cindy & Owen are very tall!).

It took five months for me to get this done — I thought I'd do it in a month. Oops. I have enough yarn to knit another one for myself, because I really fell in love with the pattern. I think my yarn is light blue though.

I've just put it back online publicly.. had it hidden for a few years. It's been a strange time for me, but I'm getting all of that sorted ;) I am dusting off the blog and cleaning it up a bit, as I have been thinking of blogging again. I do miss it, so it looks like I am returning!

I will probably have a new post up in the next couple of weeks. I was shocked to see that I've actually been away for three and a half years! Eek!
