FO Friday 135

Happy Friday everyone! I've had a pretty uneventful week, which is sometimes a good thing. Quiet weeks of mindless work and home watching TV or movies is good for the soul, don't you think? This week is much of the same I think, which is all right for me. We've started work on our basement bar (a basement in southern California...odd, right?). Luckily it's already a complete bar, including bathroom, wet bar, and even fireplace, but my husband is fulfilling a dream of his and turning it into his very own tiki bar. I'm guessing much of this weekend will be working down there when we're not out enjoying the sunshine. It will be years until he has it complete, but the beginning stages are exciting and changes will happen fast. I'll be posting pictures along the way on my Instagram (@candyskein) if you're interested in following along. I'll try and post a few WIP pictures here too, if any of you are interested in the process.

As far as FO Friday is concerned, I do have something to finally show you. I showed you my Variance cowl on the blocking mats awhile back, but never showed you completed pictures on. I kept forgetting to get my husband to take pictures for me and each time I thought of it, it was too late in the night to get anything good. It's a lovely pattern by Lisa Mutch (Northbound Knitting) who I adore. Her patterns are gorgeous, simple and timeless IMO.

I used Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in Ruby Love.
