Some FOs

Here are some things I have finished/fixed.

These are my first baby umbilical hat and socks. I love, love the bright yarn! Now, I have to make another set–twins!! (not mine)

I finally finished MySoCalledScarf and I love her very much.

The beret is something I knitted a few months ago and it turned out to be too big, despite my gauge swatch. I worked with it, trying to engineer it to fit in some way and as a last ditch, I threw her into the washer and felted her. Now it fits and I like it even better!

I made the purse las October when I was not yet a knitter–I kept having sword fights with the needles–so it is crocheted. I made long handles so it could I could wear it hans-free but I never like the way the handles looked and never used the purse even once. Finally, I got a brainstorm. I removed the handles, got out the exacto knife, and cut slits to create handles. One more round in the washer and the I-cord handle holes disappeared. Now I use it everyday!! And, I am happy to report that I am now a knitter and :heart: it!!

The beanie is for my future son-in-law and I was winging it without a pattern. Again, despite a guage swatch, it was too big. In the washer it went and it fits perfectly now!

The lace scarf is my first and the asymmetrical poncho is a gift for my niece (hope she likes it!).

The moral of my stories is NEVER GIVE UP!

Wow, very pretty things!

:cheering: :cheering: Very, very lovely things :happydance:

Beautiful stuff! I love your taste in yarn, too!

Terrific stuff! What did you use for your so-called scarf? Kureyon? It’s beautiful! :inlove:

I used Noro, Silk Garden in Rainbow colorway. I like the way it knit and how it feels.
