So many FO's!

Over the holiday weekend, I finished my handspun kerchief-turned shawl! I still have a few yards left over after binding off, as I wasn't up for playing yarn chicken. The end result is an extremely soft, squishy triangle scarf that will undoubtedly keep me warm all winter long.

I used the recipe from Joelle Hoverson's Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, which is a great source of knitting inspiration, especially when it comes to finding the perfect pattern for handspun yarn.

I absolutely love all of the colors and the texture:

Garter is fast becoming one of my favorite stitches!

This week, I also finished my Stegosaurus for the FreshStitches/Spud & Chloƫ CAL:

I have enough yarn left over to make an inverse version of the dino, too, so that will be a fun project to revisit later this month! Incidentally, it's not too late to join in on this CAL - there are prizes you can win just for finishing before the end of the month!

Also, on Wednesday night I finished my first Tour de Fleece project! I plied two singles of BFL together (one from Yarn Hollow and one from Anzula) to make this lovely 2-ply skein of worsted-ish weight yarn:

Have a crafty weekend!
