FO x 3

Yesterday was finishing day.

This is the Irish Hiking Scarf for Lorelei's Dad. This was my first attempt at cables and I think it turned out really well. Cables are fun. This was made with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, which Lorelei's Dad picked out by himself. I have some left over that I think will be used for Fetching. I will probably make another one of these in the future when I get the urge to make another scarf.

My booga bag. I totally love this. This was my first attempt at felting and while not perfect, it's good enough. I love the colors of the Noro Kureyon. I think I have plenty of time to make some more of these for Christmas presents.

I also finished my Picovoli yesterday and am wearing it today. Sadly, the pictures are somewhere on Lorelei's Dad's computer so you'll just have to imagine how it looks. Except for the armholes that I made a little too tight (completely my fault), it is pretty comfortable. I think I may make another one of these with the picots (I didn't do the picots on this one), the next size up, and another color. I do like the color (and so does Lorelei - "pretty"), but variety is good.

So now I only have two socks OTN and the 1/2 inch of my Charlotte's web shawl. I need to make some baby presents and another dishcloth, but then I think it's on to wristwarmers. Or Christmas presents. Or something else.
