I realized as I was looking back at my knitting posts that I haven’t been very good at posting or even making photos of my FO’s (finished objects). So as a bit of a catch up on the last FO”s I have done – here are my latest 2 pairs of socks and my very first ever hat. If we are friends on Facebook you’ve already seen these but I thought I’d post them here too 🙂 Other than my first pair of socks the socks in the last photo are the only other pair I’ve knit for myself. I’ve made a pair for A (first photo) and a pair as a gift (no photo).
And since it’s #Socktoberfest I started a new pair of sock that will be for Ra for Christmas. Ra said, before they left to go back to Missouri in August, “You know if you wanted to knit me a pair of socks I’d probably wear them.” I took this as the 16 yr old version of asking for socks. 🙂 No photo yet – maybe when I get the first one done.
