This is my second UFO update. My original post posed a simple challenge: I need to finish two unfinished objects before I can cast on for something new. It hasn't been a particularly speedy process, but it is working!
Our daughter's new hat was a quick finish. I am disappointed that I didn't get it done until the warm weather arrived, but at least it will be ready to go as soon as the snow arrives this fall!
This little guy took hardly any time to finish at all... and is our preschooler's new best friend!
Now it's time for a reward... something new!
I fell in LOVE with this yarn when I first saw it. (It is Tosh DK in Mansfield Garden Party). A dear friend from my knitting group gave it to me as a gift, and its sweet spring-like colors cheered my through a few gray winter moments this year. I scoured Ravelry for the perfect project for this yarn, and found it: The Sweet Shoppe Shawlette.
