Yup I've finished stuff .....

So here's what I've been doing. I finished an infant hat. Knit picks wool of the andes with a little i-cord action on the top. I should mention that I hate pom-poms (they don't fit well under a hood) so I usually use i-cord to finish little kid hats.
I started the green scarf again. This time I decided to use my size 9 needles since they have a very unique end cap .... no way to mix up needles. I finished this hat which I'm referring to as a gnome hat. W was running around with it on last night and it looked adorable. I'm making him one in a more "boy blue" since this one is too teal for a boy. This and the infant hat will be donated to charity. I have enough of this teal yarn to do a couple more things but maybe I'll set it aside for some CIC projects next year.
And finally, this is the finished green opal scarf. I must say I really love this one. The color and the pattern really work well together. I can't wait to see how this blocks out. Next I'll be back to some socks unless something else catches my eye .... and it seems that everything catches my eye lately.

The scarf looks great. And I love the hats, I have been knitting a lot of winter wear too, the kids will need them before we know it.

Love the kiddo hats and the scarf. Thanks for stopping by my blog to visit. My cats are good helpers. They help play with yarn, mess up the house and eat all the food--part of the family!

The hats are great. I made one with an I-chord top thing a little while back. It was the first time I'd ever done an I-chord, and I loved the way it came out. I'll have to try it again sometime.

I love the pattern in your scarf, and the color is gorgeous. Green is my favorite color.

It's fun finishing items. Then you feel less guilty when you begin something new.....LOL

I just discovered the joy of knitting hats recently (I had been a bit of a snob) your hats are pretty, but I love your scarf.
