More FO's!

Wow, I'm just churning them out!!
Back in January, Glen decided that we (I!) needed to make his brother a Jayne hat for his birthday. I scoured the 'net for appropriate coloured yarn (it was tough!!!) and finally settled on ordering from WEBS. All of the yarn but the yellow arrived a few weeks ago so I waited for the backorder to be shipped and it arrived today! I cast on right away since we're now 18 days past Glen's brother's birthday and it still has to ship to Australia. This was probably one of the quickest hats I've ever made.

Pattern: Jayne Hat by Dryope
Yarn: Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky
Colour: 10, 12, 15
Needle: Size 8 (16"circ and 4 DPNs)
Mods: Pretty much followed the pattern exactly. It's a bit small so next time I'd cast on 7 or 14 more stitches.

Next we have a pair of felted clogs that have been languishing in one of many WIP bags... It requires too much concentration to be able to knit it at work so that's why it hasn't been worked on. I always forget how fast these are to knit, I've already started on another random pair and have one (minus the second sole) done.

Yarn: Gjestal Naturgarn No. 1
Needle: Size 13
Mods: I work these on straight needles instead of a circular. I don't mind sewing them up.

And then!! Another pair of socks. Basic 64 stitch plain sock. Socks have become my work knitting. They're super simple and any concentration you have to do (turning the heel) is quick and it's easy to put down without losing your place.

Yarn: OnLine Supersocke 100 Tropic
Colour: 929
Needle: Size 1 DPNs

Congrats on all the FO's! I've got plans to hop aboard the FO train before too long - too much yarn and not enough FO's to show for it!And don't you just love knitted, felted clogs? So yummy in winter.

Thanks! I've never been so productive!
I think I have almost every member of my family harassing me to make them a pair! My mum has already worn holes in hers!
