F.O. update.

As a follow-up to the "favorite projects" chat we had last night on ravelry.com, here are some pretty Finished Objects that have been spotted around Loops this week.

Sherry just finished up this Whisper Cardi from the spring Interweave Knits Magazine. She made it using just 2 skeins of Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace. This sweater is whisper-light and the yarn cost less than $20!

Kim is making the Spud & Chloe "Bumble Up Scarf" using Blue Sky Dyed Cotton instead of the bulky Outer yarn called for in the pattern. Love, love this design! Great job, Kim.

Joyce came in to buy some yarn and casually plopped her latest felting creation on the counter as she rummaged for her credit card. Check out this stunner! I think she used two separate Noni patterns - one for the bag, one for the flowers, which are made with Tilli Tomas Flurries, a beaded merino that felts!

Kristin and her mom both fell in love with this Tilli Tomas ruffled-neckline top. Kristin finished hers first, but mom Diane was right behind her. Both mom and daughter are amazing knitters - and Kristin's daughter Amy knits, as well. A 3-generation knitting dynasty!

This one has been in my photo file for awhile...Gina Marie made this beautiful Serenity cardigan for her daughter-in-law, LiJie. She used Rowan Summer Tweed and the pattern is from the Rowan Studio Book #15:

After searching high and low for the designer of the beloved Wonderful Wallaby pattern, we received the pattern this week...which inspired Gene to finish up his Wallaby that he began months ago in Berroco Love It:

This pattern has sizing for all ages. We recently clearanced the Love It (Berroco discontinued it, sadly), but it would also be great in Berroco Pure Merino, Cascade Superwash or Araucania Toconau. Come in and let us help you choose a yarn!

And last, I have to show off the Campus Scarf from the book "Scarf Style," which I just finished in Kathmandu Aran Tweed - this was to be a Christmas present for my son last year.

Better late than never, right?!
