It's nice to be back home and participating in FO Friday instead of scheduling it way in advance. I have a few FOs to share, and hope to have even more next week! YAY! I've decided I want to most of the project I'm working on before starting something new (except for the purse I still have to make for Christmas of course).
Here are my FOs this week! Sorry for the dark pictures, but I finished 2 of the 3 projects tonight and it's crazy dark in my house right now, and the only light I have is very yellow. I hope to take better pics today with sunlight.
Here it is! The bamboo bar cloth I made for my husband for part of his Christmas gifts. If it wasn't going to get wet and washed all the time, I probably would block it, but it seems like there is no point since it would need to be blocked every time it is washed, correct? Anyway, I love how it turned out, and so did Kurt!

And another dishcloth/washcloth. LOL, are you tired of them yet? I love them because they are practical (I used the dragonfly one on our trip since I can't use hotel towels due to my crazy sensitive skin and it was AWESOME), there are so many great free patterns out there, I can practice my knitting with different techniques and they are quick small projects that I can finish pretty quickly. I really love the way this one turned out. I bought the yarn, as I mentioned previously, on a whim when I was ordering cotton on Cyber Monday from Joanns. I just thought it was pretty but had NO clue what to do with it until I saw this pattern. It was perfect!

My fingerless gloves are finished! I love the second one, but am not crazy about the first one because I did it with a smaller needle and also bound it off tightly. I have some of my hand-dyed yarn left, so I may knit a third glove with the bigger needle like I did the second. The first one fits, they're just not as comfortable. That being said, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone who suggested a stretchier cast off. I used this one and it was AMAZING. It is such a great way to do it. Easy, yet very very stretchy. I'm stoked! Anyway, I'm going to call these done, and contemplate making the 3rd. I want to be happy and use them, you know? They I did use them to go out to dinner tonight, just because I wanted to try them out. :)
