FO Friday

TGIF! Are you as ready for the weekend as I am? The season premiere of 24 is Sunday night and I can. not. wait. Jack's back and he brought along Freddie Prinze Jr! I plan on settling in Sunday night with my favorite snack as of late...

Hot chocolate and Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's! I'm not sure if they are only around for Christmas or if Trader Joe's got smart and stocks them all winter... but if you can find a box, grab them!!! mmm...

I'm hoping to get some knitting done this weekend too, especially since there really hasn't been much of it going on lately. I have a FO report from a few weeks ago... another cross-stitch scarf, which is a Christmas gift for a family member who we've yet to see to give it to. This has become my go-to scarf and it seems like I always have one on the needles for no-brainer knitting on the go or in front of the TV. Its a 2 row repeat that produces quite a lovely fabric...

Yarn is Patons SWS in Natural Violet colorway. I heart this colorway!

If you Ravel-stock me, you'll see that I have plenty of WIPs, as always. I'd like to finish off my Alpaca Mitts soon and I've just picked up the Chevron blanket again.

With friends expecting a baby girl in a couple of months, I thought this would be the perfect gift. I had cast this on last April, then I think I got bored with it or else just got a raging case of startitis and tossed this aside in a pile... but now the needles are clicking again!

WOOT! 24 is back! I'm a fan, too! Love the violet colorway, and I know the baby girl's mommy will love your creation. I have every single thing anyone handmade for any of my 9 children (and they range from 10 to 26, so that's a long time saving stuff!)

I love that colorway too. I haven't seen any SWS in ages...

What a sweet blanket! Are those the two colors or are there more?

Love the scarf! The color is gorgeous!! I'd love to get some stuff done too, I have way too much going on at one time. :/

I like that scarf every time I see it. It's a neat stitch, I'll have to try it.

The baby blanket is going to be pretty. They make up fast.
