FO factory

It seems like all I do lately is knit for Christmas, which is why I haven't blogged. I didn't want to give the secret away lol. I'll show you a quick hits parade of what I've churned out lately, and then I'll save tomorrow's post for the one thing I've been able to make for myself and some awesome goodies I've gotten lately. Without further ado, I present the the FO parade (that's finished object, to the uninitiated):

Pretty little stocking ornaments! The middle one is the first time I've ever done colorwork, and it seemed to turn out ok. Pattern here.

Fingerless gloves! Rav link here. I used some Paton's SWS. Christmas is such a good time to stash-bust! I don't really like the Paton's SWS because it is a bit itchy and it sheds like a mofo, so I got rid of it via gift.

I jumped on the French Press Slipper bandwagon. This was my first pair, and I have to make another tomorrow. After that, I don't think I'll felt anything for a while! I live in an apartment complex, and we have community washers. I don't think I could turn back the dial often enough to felt them. Therefore, I drive my happy butt all the way to Guthrie to use Muriel's washer.

Another stashbuster. This is the Quickie Cowl in Berroco Foliage. Pattern here. I like the yarn's color, but the splittyness drives me crazy.

Finally, a scarf, and yet another way to get rid of yarn I'll never use. This is where I may have experienced what the Yarn Harlot calls "falling down" at the yarn store. When I was told by the store employee that this yarn would be discontinued, I promptly bought the 4 skeins they had on hand. That was last March, and I haven't even used them until now. The pattern is Peasy scarf, and here's the Rav link.
Tomorrow (or Sunday, knowing me lol), I'll post a pic of the pretty gloves I've made with Tempted Luxe, some of the Tempted yarn I've recently acquired, and the 3am enchantment bags I've procured.

Oh, and one last thing. I GOT INTO THE TEMPTED @ 3AM CLUB! Yes, that required yelling.
