FO & Fiber Friday

Hooray, it's FO Friday, and unlike last week, I have bona fide finished objects to share with you this week!

First, I finished my destash Genmaicha Hat, which I knit with The Fibre Company's Canopy Fingering in Sarsparilla and Conifer and Malabrigo Finito in Paloma. Last week, I confessed that I goofed when casting on and ended up knitting the entire hat on US #1 needles (instead of US#3). Oops! The results, however, are a super-cute child-sized hat, so into the gift barrel it goes!

At the top right is my amigurumi Roosevelt monster, which was my third and final shipment from the FreshStitches Kit Club. I would have liked to sign up for another subscription, but tax day wasn't super kind to us last month! Perhaps later this year I can jump back on the kit club bandwagon...or, at the very least, treat myself to another crochet amigurumi kit!

I also finished another stockinette baby hat for the Cutie Patootie KAL/CAL - and I still have a fair amount of Cotton Comfort left over, too! I am going to try to get a pair of booties out of the remaining yarn, too - I just found this cute free pattern on Ravelry!

It was a busy week for spinning, too - not did I ply the merino single I finished on Wednesday with the dyed Wensleydale single I spun last mont, I also used the leftover merino to ply with a few random leftover bits and bobs. Perhaps I can make a fun, stripy cowl or hat with all of this yarn!

Thanks for stopping by this week - for more FO Friday inspiration, visit the Tami's Amis blog!

Have a crafty weekend!


  1. You've been busy this week! I bet it feels awesome to have that many new FOs :D

  2. I think next year I'll sign up for a club like that. Maybe I'll ask for the subscription for Christmas :) I've loved seeing all the crocheted creatures.

    Nice colour combo on the Genmaicha hat!

    1. Thanks! Yes, I'm not one to sign up for clubs - I usually prefer to choose my own yarn and patterns. But all of the FreshStitches patterns are so cute that I was never disappointed!

  3. Lots of cute projects - love that Roosevelt monster!
