Past knitting projects

So, since this is a new blog, let me start out by saying that I'm an accountant, not a writer.  So I apologize upfront for any butchering I do to the English language.  I'm going to use this post to catch you up on past FOs.

This is my latest finished object.  It's the Happy Choices Adult Hat by Plymouth yarn Design Studio.  Of course it's not actually finished in this pic.  (I haven't taken the pictures off my camera yet.)  Notice the buttons on my shoes.  Aren't they awesome?!  The right one, is a little blurry, but it says "Born to Knit."  They're called yarn dots.  I bought them at Bliss Yarns in Brentwood, TN while visiting family over the holidays.

These are felted College Cozies from "Pints and Purls: Portable Projects for the Social Knitter." This is a fun book by Karida Collins & Libby Bruce.  They rate projects by how many adult beverages you can consume and still successfully knit the project.  (IrishClover - don't buy this book.)  I made these for the men in my family this Christmas.  This shows Rams/Blues, Cardinals, and Mizzou.

This Wine Bottle Sweater project is also from Pints and Purls.  I made these for the ladies of the family.  I bought the buttons and Hearthstone Knits.  These are absolutely adorable, but I don't think I'll make anymore of them because the pattern calls for needles that are much smaller than you'd normally use for the yarn.  I think it gave it some stiffness so the sleeves wouldn't just hang down.  But, hey now I can say that I've knit 4 sweaters!

This Spring Bonnet was designed by Georgia Druen.  It was so easy to knit and turned out so adorable and it looks great on the baby.  This was knit in the Summer of 2009 for a friend's baby.  I used the leftover yarn to make the little spiral socks.

I suppose that's it for this post.  I think I'll have another one shortly on a different topic.

What kind of superhero do you want to be?
