FO Friday - Week 4


It's the WEEKEND BABY!  Oh and FO Friday.

So this week we went back to school, it's been hard getting up in the morning.  And my punishment has resumed, making school lunches!

I have 3, yes 3 FO's today!!

Odd Sleeve which  finished on Saturday late but was determined that I wanted to start something new on Sunday.
My next FO's were purely yarn driven,  I have a love for the Elle Escapade colourways.  So Mystic was started and finished.

I love making this quick and really simple shrug so much I made another one!  Mulberry, I finished this yesturday and yes you guessed it cast on another one!

Today is very overcast and this was the brightest picture I could get!

I'm off to see other FO Fridays!  Have a fantastic weekend.

  7. The sweater is impressive, but with the heat where I am, it is hard to remember that there are days that something like that would be needed, but the shrugs would be perfect for fall, spring, and movie theaters in the summer.

    All of your work is so lovely.

  9. You have had an awesome week---I adore all of these, but the bold colours and great lines of that Odd Sleeve are making me so happy. I definitely want one in my size!

    And I'm joining you in your love for the colourways in those two shrugs, both of them are so subtle and beautiful.

  11. And I couldn't even finish a sleeve and neckband on a baby sweater this week! Well, I did knit on a shawl, but it's not finished either. Everything looks wonderful!

  21. Impressive! The Odd Sleeve sweater came out great. And I like the shrugs too, it's neat how the top down construction makes it so that the stripes are carried along the sleeve. BTW, our son goes back to school in just 2 weeks so I feel for you! Have a good weekend.

  22. Your sweater and shrugs are beautiful. I just love that color shifting yarn.

    I had to laugh too -- I consider lunch making a punishment too! My kids go back to school in just 2 weeks and it's the lunches I'm dreading, not all the homework. Fortunately they are big enough to make their own now, it's just that they often don't have time with all the other school night activities.
