FO Friday: Knitstant Gratification

With TNNA just around the corner, I've been working long hours and six-day weeks for the last week or so. By the time I'm ready to sign off for the day, my brain power is pretty much spent, so I've been really appreciating the simple knits this week.

First, I found a nearly-finished Itty-Bitty Batty from 50 yards of Fun in my knitting basket! I gave him some ears and feet and now he's complete:
I couldn't resist starting another project from the book, the Small-Peanuts Elephant. I used up every scrap of the grey and blue oddballs from my stash - in fact, I had to pinch-hit to get those legs finished.
I was also gifted a skein of Spud & Chloe Outer, so I whipped up a Slope Hat by Susan B. Anderson in just one night of knitting!
I accidentally ran it through the washing machine on the maximum-abuse setting - usually I choose the delicate cycle for my superwash yarns. It emerged relatively unscathed, especially considering the wild ride it went on!

Thirty-One Party: Last Call
My party will come to an end on Monday, so it's time to get your order in! If you're reorganizing your craft room (or any other part of your house, for that matter) I highly recommend the many storage bin options when you click on the "Home" and "Utility" categories:
Here's my handy tip for the day: add a cedar block to your utility tote when storing yarn and fiber!
