Sooner's Recent FO*s

I have recently acquired a couple of FOs that the wily Bevin was able to capture photos of. First is a throw I finished about 2 weeks ago. I intend it as a gift for my mother on Mother's Day. Cross Lane Cables from Gorgeous Knitted Afghans.

I named it Coffee's Miracle as I finished it in a fit of knitting late into the night following some mega caffeinated brew Bevin cooked up for me during an Alias Hang. It is totally being cuddled by Macy, the official spokesdog of TK.BS**.







Additionally, I've just finished the knitting of a Rose Trellis Bag of Miracles and Sumptuousness, a Nicky Epstine design from the winter edition of Vogue Knitting. (See knitalong button on side panel of this blog for details and additional photos.) Mine is still in the pre-felted stage, but it's FO enough to be included here. This is intended as a gift for my sister who is soon to be great with child and who has recently taken up knitting herself. I will fill it with needles and yarn and patterns for baby booties when I give it to her.

The roses and leaves are all complete (a dozen roses and 38 leaves), but need to be felted before they are attached to the bag, so I placed one rose to give a taste of what it will look like when complete. Macy, the official spokesdog of tk.bs**, can totally be carried by the Rose Trellis Bag of Chocolate Sauce and Luxury but can be seen here carrying the Rose Trellis Bag of Air Kisses and Opulence.







I will be sure to post photos of the Rose Trellis Bag of Splendor and Majesty once it has been felted and is completely assembled.

I don't mean to alarm you, but Macy, the official dog of tk.bs*, appears to be inhabited by alien beings. Please direct your most careful attention to her eerily glowing eyes.

The throw is nice, though.

I love the afghan, Sooner-- nice cabling and fringe!
The bag looks great in its pre-felted state.
