FO-fest

I can’t believe how much I’ve been slacking on showing off FO’s! I seriously finished my Hatteras Hat almost a week ago. Voila:

I did indeed run out of yarn at the brim, so I switched to some pretty purple I had in stash. Purple is the recipient’s favorite color, so I think she’ll be pretty happy with it.

Last night I ALSO finished…dun dun dun…the Black Hole Sweater!!!!

It is nice and cozy, and for all the hours I put into it I will sure as hell wear it. Sadly even with my alterations it’s still not that flattering though.

The back-waist shaping and the narrower sleeves just weren’t enough to keep it from overwhelming me. Oh well, it’s still going to be well-loved as cold as this winter’s already been.

I ALSO also finished my very first skein off the wheel this week. Well, I finished plying it. It has yet to actually come off the wheel and take a bath.

It seems to be about worsted weight, overall, but it’s definitely not my most consistent skein. Still, not bad for a first attempt with a new tool. Let’s hope my next skein is more up to my standards! Since this week has been a week of Finishing All the Things, I think next week(end) I will let my Start-itis roam free. There’s no way that can go wrong, right?

    The first few skeins are definitely for practice 🙂
