Knitting has been taking place too....

So, I know I have been MIA for a while.  More about that in a different post.  I wanted to showcase a few FO's that have actually been done for a while.  The first two are of the Holden Shawlette that I made for a swap.  I had dyed the yarn at Upstairs Studio and it seemed perfect for the swap.  The third picture is a crochet gift bag for the same swap.  My attention span was at an all time low, so the next few pictures are of three scarves that I worked on.  they were mostly mindless and I needed that.  The first and second ones are for gifts.  The last one is for me.  I made it with yarn from a Valentine's swap.  It is from Wales and I love the colors.  I didn't realize that there was a MAJOR color difference with the skeins until after I was finished.  It is literally two different scarves but that is what makes it so unique.  I have also finished the Red Hot and am a third of the way finished with a baby blanket for my Niece's second son.  Not bad considering what my last year has been like.
