So, this was my last FO for 2006; a candy heart pillow from the Domiknitrix book. It’s handspun at 8wpi (modestly bulky), embroidered with floss. I think the next time I’ll try one out of acrylic – it’ll be for Big Girl’s room, and it won’t stretch as much. The next time I’ll also embroider the words when I finish one side; I could feel it stretching while embroidering the piece, which accounts a little for the funky shaping.
Here is my first FO of 2007:
It’s a sock for Big Girl; made from a soy silk blend from my own pattern. She tried it on last night and says it fits just fine, with no itching. She liked the ruffled edge too, which is nice because it was pretty easy. Next time I may try a picot cast on. Sock #2 is almost to the heel, so it should be done by Saturday.
