SO your FO

Beth and I spent yesterday afternoon on the golf course. No phone. No computer. Beautiful weather. What a way to spend the day. My round was terrible but we had fun.

Here are some Finished Objects that people have brought in over the past few weeks and I haven't posted yet.

Gail knit this cardigan out of Rowan's Summer Tweed. She is a bit shy and didn't want her picture taken so one of my girls offered to wear it. The pattern is called the Cropped Raglan Cardigan-knit from the neck down with no sewing-a free pattern from Lion Brand's website.

Maria knit this cute Debbie Bliss hooded cardigan out of Zara-100% machine washable wool.

Another from Maria-a baby blanket crocheted out of Sirdar Snuggly Kisses. This is Sirdar's Snuggly DK but the colours shade from light to dark and back again.

Can you imagine knitting this and then giving it away? Maria knit this for her daughter's friend out of Rowan Cashsoft DK-a Debbie Bliss pattern. The sewing in of the ends took just as long as the knitting.

Clara is wearing her moms Everyday Wrap (a free Ravelry download) from coco knits made in Kid Silk Haze. You can't see it well in the picture but there is a neat ruffle running down the front of the wrap.

Sarah and Clara. Sarah is wearing Sizzle by Wendy Bernard in Juicy from Sirdar. This is what Wendy wrote about the top on Ravelry - "So here’s a sleeveless shell with some easy-but-fancy dart action that you can knit in about three days that’ll show off whatever there is to show. And if you’re not into the old nudie thing, wear a camisole underneath or alter the neckline depth (I’ll tell you how). But if you do, just be sure you use some yarn that has a bit of shimmer and glimmer and sizzle.
.....Because, honestly, it’s all about the sizzle."
