The Rest of my Christmas FO's
Here's some more FO's
My friend Amy got My So Called Scarf and My Herringbone Hat, 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 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 set, made with Bernat Satin Lagoon, two strands held together.

Thanks for looking!
