FOs!! Can You Believe It?

Yes, really! I did finish three items to send off to India for Warm Hats, Warm Hearts, the group knitting for those Vermonters who lost everything in the flooding from Hurricane Irene. At the TKGA event, needles were in my hands whenever I wasn't writing up orders, so I managed to finish:

first the gray Seaman's Cap and then a
burgundy one.

As you probably remember, I adore this pattern, it knits up well, and just looks so nice. I used Vanna's Choice, and I have bought so many skeins of different colors, you'll probably see more of these this fall...

Then I finished up (finally!) the Kroy Socks in the navy/denim colorway that I started in May. Yes, I really did intend them for me, but I have many socks, and I think there'll be some cold toes this winter back in my family's home state. So off they go.

I have a pair of purple socks that have been languishing on the needles for a couple of years (I'm not fond of the yarn). But I think I have just the push now to finish them, too. Someone will be very happy to have them, I know. So I'm bringing them out tonight to restart mid-way thru the Second Sock. (and I do say that I really don't have Second Sock Syndrome, and normally I don't, but I really don't care for this yarn...oh. I said that once, eh? Can you tell I don't like it?)

Someone else is less than happy at the moment...I took the camera cord away from him...

Mommie took my toy!

Well done! I am thinking that seaman's cap is just the no nonsense cap that Wilson needs.

And sending off the purple socks is a brilliant idea. good on you!

Excellent hats! I think a good ribbed hat is really warm and the ribbing lets them fit so well. No wonder sailors wore them!

Well, the Tonk is still cute, even if he is feeling a bit grumpy.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
