Fee Fi FO Friday

I know it’s really YPF, and I have some yarn to show you, but I’m more excited to show you my latest FO. I finished the Argosy Baby Blanket on Tuesday night because the Dad-to-be was going to be in the office on Wednesday. But his wife went into labor and his son made a command appearance so he doesn’t have his blanket yet.

The decreases went much faster than the increases and I finished it (all but blocking and end weaving in) over the weekend. I used 3 ½ skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease. Since I had that ½ skein I made a little hat to. Sorry, no picture of that since it was an afterthought.

I’m really happy with the blanket. I hope little toes and fingers don’t get caught in the yo sections.

As promised, here is some fairly boring yarn I snapped photos of because I reclaimed it (aka ripped out the back of a UFO sweater). The yarn is really nice and I’ll need to make something else out of it. But for now, it can sit in my stash while I think on what project best suits it. Plus it freed up a pair of size 7 circs which I seem to need a lot lately.

Happy Weekend!!!

There's something so satisfying about reclaiming yarn from a UFO. A previously ignored pile of knitting suddenly has such possibility again!
