I guess we'll have to wait. Silly camera!
But, that's okay. I'm sure a few of us will still be posting a few FO's next week!

Rita your son did a great job on this hat. Yours are not bad either, lol. Love the little flower hats, so cute.

Sandy could you post a link for instructions on how to do that crochet border. I have three blankets here that I need to do a border on so would like to make something nice like yours. The blanket is lovely.

Here is a couple of FO's completed just in time. first my Rainforest socks which I have had on the needles for 2-3 months now, only had 3 repeats of the pattern to do, so was really quick once I decided today was the day.

Next is a dress I made for Maisey, started it in the spring but found the recommended yarn was not really a summer yarn so I knew she would not use the dress until autumn so I lost interest. It is done now, a little big for her so she may get a couple of years wear out of it.

Thanks Karina! I found the pattern in an old knitting book I've had since 1982. Here's how I did the shell border:
Do a single crochet border all around the blanket, then:
At the first corner, Chain 1
1) Skip the next stitch
2) Do 3 half-double crochets in the next stitch (all in the same stitch)
3) Skip the next stitch
4) Do 1 single crochet in the next stitch

Repeat steps 1 through 4 until you get to the next corner.
Do 4 or 5 half-double crochets in the corner stitch, then do steps 1 through 4 again across the next side.

Repeat this process until you do all the sides of the blanket.

When you get back to the beginning corner, slip the first and last stitches together. You're done!

Karina, your sweetiepie is so cute! Lovely FOs!!!
Rita, son's hat is fantastic and love yours, too!!!

I FINALLY finished my Hemlock Ring which I originally planned to be a tablecloth...then changed it to a blanket because I thought the yarn would be too thick... BUT it isn't!!!! So now, it's done and blocked and having to wait for the camera batteries to charge and OMIGOSH, it's much nicer than I thought it would be after frogging it twice. I'm just super glad it's done....will post photos this afternoon.
