Finished some UFO's ...

This hat has been sitting in my basket waiting for those two pompoms since August. Remember the other two hats I knit? One for the DH's birthday & the other for the 'Circle of Love' hat project at the Seed Stitch Fine Yarn store in Salem. Well I made this from left over yarn and decided it's the one for ME. That's right ... another kooky hat for the StitchingNut!

And believe it or not, there's still more yarn left from this batch and I think it's enough for one more hat. I'll make it for the Circle of Love hat project I think. It'll be strippy so I can use up the rest of the yarn.

I finally got the orange socks done for the Munchkin. Hope they fit! They came out pretty cute and the pattern is from Knitting Vintage Socks called Infant's First Socks. It was a quick an easy knit ... until I ran out of yarn, LOL.

And I got a pair of mittens done for her also. These weren't UFO's but I started them two days ago using the pattern in Folk Mittens and wanted to finish them in time for our visit this weekend to New Hampshire. We'll be going to the Deerfield Fair with the kids ... and might stay until after dark.

Want the little hands to be warm on a cool Autumn night right?

Everything is just so cute!
Can I grab a copy of that simple cabled Jo Sharp hat that uses only one skein?

Wow, you sure had a whole lot of this gorgeous orange yarn - and all you did with it is so beautiful! So are the mitts, they look perfectly warm and cozy for the cold winter days that are yet to come!

I like that hat! Isn't it great to be able to make a whole project out of leftovers, 'cuz then they are technically free, at least by the way I calculate things!

The mittens are cute, and those little teeny orange socks are just too adorable!

The hat, mittens, and socks are all fabulous! I am sure the munchkin will be nice and toasty warm in all the cute things her Nana (Nanny, Grandma, Granny, Grammy, or whatever she will call you) will knit for her :o)

Great that your WIPs became UFOs! I saw your question about the Pinwheel Blanket pattern and thought I could forward it to you.
