FO Festival!

I'm having a little party here - a Finished Objects party. I haven't had one of these in quite some time.

First, who doesn't love handknit mittens?

Handspun Wensleydale in the Wild Things colorway from Lisa Souza. Yummy.

Next, a top-down raglan in koigu color P138. I've been working on this for a year and a half.

I ran out of yarn a few rows short of having full length sleeves, so I washed and dried it hanging, and the sleeves grew about 1" making them just perfect. Of course, now the v-neck is a little deeper than I usually wear, so I will have to find a camisole to wear under this, or be a little more daring. Ha Ha.

Here's an action shot. It's not the most flattering, but my 7yo photographer did the best he could.

What will she finish next?

The wee one looks pretty pleased with his new mittens, and the Koigu sweater is beautifully done! I bet it feels great wearing it.

Huzzah for the FO's! Those sleeves do indeed look perfect now. Great mitts too. And it's just the weather for 'em now.
