Here's some more FO's
My friend Amy got My So Called Scarf (http://imagiknit.com/?p=60) and My Herringbone Hat (http://www.moonfrog.com/?p=185), knit with Patons Shetland Chunky, the blue jeans colorway. When I made the body of the hat, it pooled terribly and I didn't like it, so I frogged and alternated between three skeins. It still pooled a wee bit, but not as bad as the first attempt. I had to frog the scarf too, it started to look all wonky on the edges for some reason. I ended up slipping the first stitch and knitting or purling the last stitch of every row and the seemed to solve the problem.

Amy's 10 year old daughter Hanna, got this (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5006883)set (it's the vintage Victorian Lace). I used Caron Simply Soft Brites (Hot Watermelon, or something like that), two strands held together.

And lastly, Amy's 6 year old daughter Emily, got this (https://id306.securedata.net/sandrasingh.com/merchantmanager/product_info.php?cPath=76_481&products_id=2273) set, made with Bernat Satin Lagoon, two strands held together.

I was pretty impressed with myself too! :teehee: I started early, but still not early enough, as I was hastily knitting away till the last moment. :)

Nope, it was easy peasy! Plus, it's bulky yarn, so it's a quick knit! :)
