Happy 2017!! It's been a while, but I always say that... And since it's been so long, I have a few finished projects to show you!
The first is a pair of mittens I finished almost a year ago. They were a present for a friend and I didn't want to spoil the surprise. My friend Khyrstyn loves butterflies and as soon as I saw Underwing from Twist Collective, I knew I had to make them for her. It took me a few years to buy the yarn and finish them, but I'm super happy with how they turned out.
I did finish the dark green shawl I mentioned last time, but I haven't blocked it or taken decent pictures yet.
Now for some Christmas presents...
A cabled hat for my lovely friend Mabs. She sent me a great picture of her wearing it.
And a beret for my friend Sharyssa. Here's a terrible picture of me modeling it.
Now introducing my awesome Chicago Cubs sweater!!!! I finished it on the last day of 2016. I need to weave in the ends so I can wear it on opening day in a few weeks.
And last of all, a pair of socks for my little brother. This project was part of Jenn Emerson's One Week Sock Challenge. I made it! Next time, I'm going to try socks for me. :)
