Last 2 FO's of 2012

Happy FO Friday! Today I'm sharing the last two projects completed in 2012. Both were made during the course of my trip to Kansas City for the holidays. I crocheted this cute little crab on the train ride down from Chicago - it was a great way to spend the first few hours of the trip! Tyler and I named him Eugene (I've been watching a lot of Spongebob Squarepants on Netflix streaming) and he became my little buddy for the duration of our trip. He's sitting atop my pretty new Knitter's Pride needle case that I got for Christmas, though I think his permanent home will be somewhere in my office.

The yarn, safety eyes and pattern were part of the first shipment of the Fresh Stitches Just Add Stuffing Kit Club - the perfect thing to grab and go when packing!

The Here and There hat by Veera Välimäki has been lurking in my queue since early last year, so I figured this trip would be the perfect time to cast on. I knit it in similar colors to those pictured in the pattern using Malabrigo Worsted in Pigeon and Tuareg; it turned out to be a really great on-the-go project. Plus, I was able to hold a conversation without losing my place in the pattern. I finished it on New Year's Eve...not a bad way to close out 2012!
