F is for ....

Focus, Finishing and Frenzy and Fabulous. Well, only one of the projects is fabulous. The other one, I just don't want to talk about it!

First up, Dumpling from Rowan Babies. I made one pink for Keira about 3 years ago, but I accidently felted it. So I decided to make another one for Zoe. I don't often reknit things, so it would have been helpful if I kept some notes from the last time. I forgot the sleeves didn't fit into the armholes. 3 attempts later, I got that to work. The yarn is Rowan Big Wool in Mulberry which I had leftover from my project, Tess. I didn't have quite enough to finish the project, so the cuffs and the tops of the sleeves are in Sugar Spun.

Anyway, here is Zoe working her charm!

Finally, I finished my Embossed Leaves socks. I started them in August 2008 and finished sock one. Cast on sock two, and forgot about them. I was desperate to use my 2.75mm needles, so I thought I might as well finish them rather than putting them on holders. 3 nights of knitting later, I finish them. Can you guess what's wrong with them???? I accidently added half a repeat to the leg pattern, so 1 sock is slightly longer than the other. Doh!! I'm just going to live with this mistake. Moving on.....
