a round-up of FOs

oh hai.

Vacation + life got in the way of blogging -- but not knitting! My beau and I went to Vegas a few weeks ago and had a blast. I even did lots of knitting, thanks to long flights each way.

Most of my vacation knitting was a Sockhead Hat out of some luscious Madelinetosh Sock in Clematis:

It took for-EVA to knit this thing. Four inches of ribbing + nine inches of stockinette. But I really love it and it's so soft and cushy. I can't wait for it to get cold enough for me to wear it...

Next-up - a beret for my friend Barbie, who designed some tags for me to attach to knitted gifts. This was knit out of Malabrigo Worsted in Emerald Blue.

A friend from college had a baby girl, so I whipped up these socks from leftover Trekking 100 and mailed 'em off to Pennsylvania:

And finally ... a pair of socks for me!

The yarn is Malabrigo Sock and Trekking 100. I used about a half a ball of each.

And that's it! All the knitting I've been working on. I've got a couple more socks in the works right now -- it is Socktoberfest, after all ...
