FOS - Really

Here are some FOS as promised in the last post - however, not the ones I intended.

The first are two hats knit from the Fall issue of Knit It for two impending babies. They were a very easy and quick knit on the favorite Sugar and Cream cotton yarn. I am hoping to get some matching sweaters made for these two little beanies. I think these two little hats are almost too precious to be borne.

FO #2: The Wristies from the latest Crochet Me. I remembered why I love to crochet so much - it's quick. These worked up in no time. I had a little trouble with the thumb hole on the first one but I figured it out. And I screwed up the color pattern but I decided to keep it. I liked it and was quite a ways along when I realized the error.

FO #3: Last but not least - Humphrey from the Monsters of Teen Craft Tour. He worked up really quickly too. I just used some scrap Red Heart. I need to glue his eyes on better as one has already fallen off, fortunately not in the midst of his photo shoot. He is now the office mascot.

There are more WIPs to become FOs. The sticking point is sewing the lining, but I finally found some material I think works. Stay tuned.
