Peekaboo!, originally uploaded by a-chan.

(sorry about the crappy picture, it's from my phone)

To prove that I have been knitting, I introduce you to Peekaboo

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport - held double through-out
Needles: us size 7's (dpns)
Pattern: Peekaboo from Magknits

No changes that I remember. I had to rip the tops out of them several times to get the right hight, they're still not exactly the same. I don't like the decreases, so If I knit these again, I'll probably use a different top.

I love the finger holes! They're so convenient! They're for me, but I think I have enough yarn to knit two more pairs in smaller sizes (like, for the nieces).

Another FO:


Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Ballerina (less than half the skein) and Plymouth Encore worsted, held together through-out
Needles: us size 17
No pattern

A basic garter stitch scarf for my grandma. I'm not one to usually go to the dark side (novelty yarn and huge needles), but I did for this fast knit. I got a little scared that I didn't have any Christmas gifts done, so I whipped this one out on Sunday.

At the Blue Moon Fiber Arts de-stash sale on Saturday, I picked up the Ballerina (can't even find a listing for it on Ravelry), a hank of Rio in lapis, a skein of what looks like Gingerbread Dude in STR mediumweight, two skeins of STR lightweight in what looks like two of the Raven series, and two skeins of neon STR lightweight that missed their bath and are not superwash. It wasn't as successful of a trip as I hoped. I really wanted to find enough STR to knit the Big Bad Baby Blanket from SnB (3 skeins of two different colors to be held together... but I can't afford that at full price)

I should have more FOs soon because of gifts. I already started a feather and fan scarf out of the neon STR.
