2008 FO#13 & #14 Geraldine's baby booties

Some baby sox and the Easy Lace Baby Blanket. Was to be gifted to my daughter's hockey coach...but she never showed up for the year end party. So back into the gift box.

2008 FO#21 The Office Grey Sweater

Well it never did work out like it was supposed to..but DD didn't notice and loves the sweater anyway. Started one pattern, didn't like the cables, so changed them. Yarn stretched after washing and blocking, so I cut 6" from the bottom and then did a sewn bindoff.

FO#38 (2007) ... #77 Regia 5268

Another boring pair of plain jane socks from stash. I'm really starting to hate stripes and jacquards.

FO#36 (2007) ... #76 Lang Super Soxx

I blogged about this yarn from Ram Wools awhile ago. It was marked Super Soxx and was a horrible orange brown stripe. It felt awful to touch and cost me dearly (almost $25) because the books I ordered were out of stock and this was the sale surprise pack that I threw in to make it worthwhile.
I started these and thought I was going to gift them. But I actually started to like the colour. And when washed the first time...what a surprise...they were soft. So I have to eat crow and say...
I'M NOT UNHAPPY WITH THE SURPRISE PACK. But I still don't think they were worth $25.

FO #34 and #35 (2007) Di's baby booties

BFF Di requested a quick couple of baby socks for another friend's shower. These are such a hit and I get to use up some leftover sock yarn. I usually do these on size 1's and 36 stitches. Bit of ribbing and turn the heel (flap style) and then 3 inches down the foot. Toe close and DONE! So simple that I don't even use a pattern.
Oh and these are finished objects from 2007, that's how far behind I am in my posts. When I upload a bunch of pics to flickr and webshots, I also add posts to my blog list (unedited)...hoping that it will inspire me to add them to my blog and ravelry.
