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?

Then I tried it on.. much pulling and tugging and I had to admit it was too tight…
