FOs in 2010, Part 1

As I didn’t post all that much last month in the end, I thought I’d do a round up of last year’s finished projects now, before it gets too out of date.  Some of these I’ve mentioned before, but I wanted to get some better pictures of one or two anyway.  So, in order of finishing:

As Long As It’s Black
As Long As It's BlackPattern: That Chocolate’s Gone Straight To Your Ribs Hat by Leonie Connellan [Ravlink]
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Black, and James C Brett Autumn Bliss in Dark Blue
Needles: 4mm metal – 40cm circulars and DPNs
A slightly belated Christmas present for the brother.  A nice straightforward ribbed hat that he wears even though it’s got a stripe of blue in it! ;-)

Mum’s Christmas (’09) Mitts
Xmas mittens for Mum 09Pattern: Basic Mitten Pattern by Ann Budd [Ravlink]
Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK in Claret
Needles: 3.75mm metal circulars
Another belated Christmas present, this time for Mum – she asked me for some mittens in the same pattern that I’d made for her charity shoebox, but I didn’t have time to get them done in time for Christmas itself.  I did get them done in time for the snow, though!

Rocky Butte Socks
Rocky Butte socksPattern: Rocky Butte Socks by Elli Metz [Ravlink]
Yarn: The Yarn Yard Hug in Scrum
Needles: 3mm Addi bamboo circulars
I’d been wanting to make some thicker, squishier socks for a while – this pattern was a lovely quick knit and I like how it worked with the yarn.

Clapotis à la Toscana
ClapotisPattern: Clapotis by Kate Gilbert, from Knitty: Fall 04 [Ravlink]
Yarn: Posh Yarn Eva 4ply in Tuscany
Needles: 4.5mm Boye interchangeable circulars
I started this back in October ’07.  I only knit as far as the first “straight” repeat before putting it down again.  I finally picked it up this year and knit through it really quite quickly to the finish.

Fireworks Socks
Fireworks socksPattern: Slight modification on Timberline Toes by Lucy Neatby [Ravlink]
Yarn: The Yarn Yard Bonny in Oct 07 Club: Fireworks (& contrast red)
Needles: 2.5mm Brittany birch DPNs.
This is another project I started back in Oct ’07.  I worked slowly on them a few rows at a time, as they were my “waiting rooms” project.  When I hit the foot of the second sock this year, I sat down and knit through them to finish them off.

That’ll do for now – I’ll show of the rest of the finished projects for the year soon.
