The year is finishing...

And I find myself finishing many projects. Which is good, I like starting each new year with fresh new projects, rather than carrying things over.

I finished my only adult sweater of the year. It is Ashfield from New England Knits, worked in Cascade 220 Sport.

I love the yarn, it's soft and shows off the stitches beautifully.

I also finished my only full pair of socks for the year. I used the Sherman toe and heel that I learned from Brenda Dayne's class, and I love the way the heel fits. It's my new standard heel.

I used handspun to knit a new winter hat. The fiber was a Boho Knitter Chic batt from BSG (blogged it, remember?) and I love how it knit up. The pattern is Toorie.

I finished the other side with pom-poms.

I used more handspun to knit a little scarflette. It is the Orwell Bridge Scarf. The yarn was thicker than called for, so I modified the stitch count throughout,

I also finished a Christmas present that will be unveiled once it has been received.

I've got two projects on the needles right now, but one is a gift and the other doesn't look like much, so photos will have to wait.
