Some Finished Objects!

Despite the fact that I've only recently recovered from election mania and that I start grad school next week, I've managed to find the five seconds it takes to upload some pictures.

So let's celebrate some finished objects!

Sarah made sure to finish her socks during Stitch N Bitch so she could be properly praised and documented. (And yes, Sarah, they really do look good enough to eat!)

Tina knit this beautiful sweater in about five minutes. No joke. She casted on the week after the terrible wind storm and was done two weeks later. And we're talking about Fair Isle, people! Steeking no less! (If you're interested in making one for yourself, the pattern is from Big Girl Knits. Or was it More Big Girl Knits? It really makes it difficult to remember these things when I blog about them a month after they happened.)

And check out those sleeves! Belled and with cables!

And she even found time to use up some of the extra yarn in this adorable felted purse! (I believe the pattern is from One Skein Wonders. Correct me if I'm wrong. No, really. Correct me.)

Both projects (all three maybe: Sarah, I believe those socks were knit out of Cascade 220 superwash?) were made out of good ol' Cascade 220.

And because no blog post is complete without Leo, here he is modelling those adorable Cargo pants from Knitty that Cindy knit him all that time ago when he was just a bulge under Tonya's tank top. Look, he's even sitting still for the camera!

Oops, I spoke too soon!

For the record, it's from More Big Girl Knits. I want one!

Woo hoo! I *love* Tina's sweater; I'm itching to steek.
