Yet another FO!

I have now officially had my best month for finished objects ever: Four! I got some yarn for a Shroom hat for Georgia so I might even have five FOs if I finish it before Saturday. Which is a possibility, given how quick the knit is.

Anyway, here is Ryan's Very Manly Cowl, unblocked:

I knitted this for my soon-to-be-brother-in-law (Ella's fiance) per Ella's request. It is the first of four commissions I've received recently. The next is a Tiny Tea Leaves cardi for a friend's granddaughter.

Pattern: My own. Just cast on 200 stitches, garter stitch for 10 rows, knit like a crazy person until the yarn has almost run out, 10 more rows of garter stitch, cast-off.

Yarn: Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball Crazy in color 1153.

Needle: US 7 (4.5mm)

Beezer had to "help" with the picture taking this morning:

And then Bagheera decided to take over the "helping."

I'm knitting on the Offset Raglan for myself, but have only gotten an inch or two past the ribbing done. For some reason, knitting that sweater is causing some hand pain. Other knitting, no pain at all. It might be the needles. I'm trying out a Susan Bates circular for the first time, since all of my other size 6 needles are... well, they're from that particular interchangeable set I was whining about a few months ago.

In addition, I have the yarn wound into cakes for Cherry Fizz and the pattern all printed out. I was just waiting to get Ryan's Cowl off my needles.


  1. Wow you are on a roll - you go, gal! I've been working on stuff and have even taken a few pics, but sadly haven't finished anything or blogged since the mohawk. Bad me (the sprained wrist doesn't help).

  2. i think beezer looks so cute you may have to knit him a little cat bed.

    i have half of a shroom hat done but i think i am doing the increases wrong so i stopped. maybe if you make one you can give me some advice. sometimes i can't believe the things that can trip me up in a pattern.

  3. You rock girl! :-) And that is a real very manly cowl for shore, the colors are great! Cute little Beezer, and not to forget the Bagheera.

  4. Keep the forward momentum going. Glad someone is getting some finishes, it surely isn't me right now.
