Well, I finally dug out the camera and took some pics of some miscellaneous FO's that I had around. I'm not very happy with the quality of the pictures, :cry: but I think you can get the point! I tried to post the best of the pics that I took. Most of the yarn used in these are some form of acrylic - things I had started my stash with when I first got back into knitting, so I can't say what it is!

The first 2 pictures are of a matching sweater and hat - they were my first ever "garments" which I made last year for a friend of DD. She never gifted them, but has another friend who is having a boy and will give them to her! The pattern is from LB - cabled baby sweater set. The LB website is not working for me today, so I can't post the link.

I have been doing alot of knitting/crocheting for HAP. The next two pics are of a scarf I did in dc and a ribbed hat. The hat pattern is http://lionbrand.com/patterns/60814AD.html?noImages=0

The last are scarves I made just using a drop stitch & garter stitch pattern. The first is a brown flecked chenille, the second a raspberry pink yarn of something very, very soft, and the last is using a blue wool blend.

Lastly are a pair of booties I made for a friend who had a baby in June, but I have not seen her. Hopefully they will still fit - if not, something is already ready to be gifted! I am working on a baby afhgan for her as well - I know that will still fit! :eyes:

My knitting is definitley improving since these projects were made, but I thought I would post something! Thanks for looking :)

Very cute!Love the cabling down the front of the sweater ~

My computer and camera don't 'interface' at all, I envy the rest of you.

Thank you! It was my first attempt at cables - I was pretty pleased how it turned out!

HAP is the Handmade Afghans to Thank our Armed Forces Project.

I actually found about about HAP here, in the Charity Knitting section

Everything looks good. I really like the little sweater with the cable down the front. Very masculine little sweater.

Great job! You sure have been busy! The Drop Stitch is still one of my faves - you just can't go wrong with it. LOVE those little booties too!
