Finished Objects! Finished Objects!
I finished a couple of projects yesterday. Here is a pair of socks I knit for our friend, Kenny. They're in Special Blauband in a lovely sage green. The pattern is pretty basic: 1x1 rib, then 3x2 rib. I knit them on size 2 needles, holding two strands of yarn together. Kenny has pretty big feet, and I knew I'd never finish them otherwise!

Candy Corn socks,
adapted by me from a pattern on the old SockGuy's page. The yarn is Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool. Don't know how well this stuff will hold up as socks, but then, how often am I going to wear socks with candy corn on them anyway? The knitting was actually finished almost two years ago, but I just finally got around to working in all the ends.
This was one of my first FOs after many years of not knitting. It was knit for our DDIL Nici when she and DS were dating. She needed a wrap for her Senior Prom. The yarn was something inexpensive from WalMart, but it turned out very nicely, especially as it was my first attempt at lace-knitting. DO NOT look too closely at the pattern...ahem! I seem to have placed the very worst of the mistakes smack-dab in the middle of this photo.
