Two FO’s and news of a UFO refound

In a fit of finishing I have actually managed to finish not one, but two projects!
Reverse Bloom
Reverse Bloom Washcloth from Week-End Knitting knit in Crystal Palace Chenille. This is for our next-door-neighbor who turned 80 this summer. Ravtails.
Rattlesnake Creek Socks
Rattlesnake Creek Socks from Wooly Wonka Fibers knit in Dream in Color Smooshy from The Loopy Ewe. These had a tumultulous start and were for the previously mentions Sock Knitters Pentathlon, but sadly were not finished by the deadline. That said, they’re great socks and I enjoyed knitting them a great deal. Ravtails.

After finishing these and swatching for a sock class with CookieA this week-end I was left rather at loose ends on the knitting front. So off I went to my bag of UFO’s and found my Shetland Triangle started in the summer of ’07. What a delight to knit. I wonder why I put it away?


  1. Something better came along? A deadline came up? There are a million reasons but I’m glad you reconnected w/your Shetland Triangle.

    That washcloth is cute and I LOVE those socks. The yarn colorway is perfect for the pattern.

  3. Awesome finished objects . . . I dream of finishing some things. I’d love to see these in person if you’re walking around in them any day soon.

  5. You know one of these days I am going to have one of the blossom washcloths for myself. I keep knitting them for others too!

    I am DEFINITELY going to use my smooshy yarn for that sock pattern. I might even cast on tonight.
