View Full Version : A couple FOs

Hi there, I'm new here and thought I might as well post a couple of my more recent FOs. I've been crocheting for several years, but only started knitting about six months ago.

The first is a cardigan I tested for a lady over at Crochetville (http://www.crochetville.org). It's made with Lion Brand WoolEase in Green Heather. Now I only need to wait ...uh, about five more months before the weather will be cool enough to wear it! :doh:

I made a brooch to go with it too; it's sterling silver wire in various gauges and jade. The messy wire work was intentional; I wanted to try to give the impression of weathered, gnarled bark.

My first knit wearable is one of those infamous Anthropologie-inspired capelets. ;) It was made with Red Heart Bijou in Barely Pink.

yum! I really like the tree brooch. Oh, and the sweater is nice too :rofling: No, really, I'm seriously impressed by the sweater, but I totally covet the brooch. Now I have to go back and look at your other pics. :D
