FOs: Finished Objects

Because it has been so long since i posted about knitting, you all are in luck! i have quite a few finished objects to show off. I have been on a kick of small quick projects. i don't have a huge project going right now, but am thinking of starting a shawl for myself soon. My fist completed project is, yes, another scarf. i am making these scarves for the Domestic Violence shelter. i think they are really pretty and girlie!

This is that Red Heart Rag Doll yarn that we got on clearance a while back at walmart. it has turned out so pretty. this picture just doesn't do it justice. Ok, another scarf:

This one is Lion Brand Jiffy Thick and Quick. It is really bright and fun. Again this photo doesn't do it justice. Another scarf:

There are now three of these scarves made out of this particular yarn. It is Landscapes by Lion Brand. A friend of mine gave this to me after she started a bolero out of it and hated the huge variations of color within the same dyelots. For her project it did look bad but for these scarves it really hasn't mattered too much. i can tell, but i hope it really isn't all that noticable. All of these have coordinating ribbons incorporated in the fringe.

Then i got an idea. There is a Medical Assistant student at the office i am doing this last clinical rotation who is pregnant. she is due in September and her last day is some time next week. i have got all that cotton flannel for baby blankets and bunches of stuff to make hats with. I made this hat first:

Then i decided that it was too Christmasy. What do you all think? Does it remind you of Christmas? I did not have any flannel that matched at all. Well it bothered me so i made a new one:

This one is much better for a baby boy, and i had a blanket that matched:

This blanket is super cute. it is a great light green color with blue stars and yellow moons and swirls. I crocheted a border that looks like star points. it is in that same light green as the blanket. I think it turned out really well. Here is the completed gift:

It is in a cute little basket with a book called, It's a Boy, which i found at walmart. i also included a cute little blue bear that i got at the dollar tree. i think it turned out really well and i don't have that much in it. only probably about 10 dollars in total, including the basket. i can't wait to give i to her. i jus love working on things for other people. i made another one of these baskets for a close friend of mine last fall and she has called me asking if i would make her some more of those cotton flannel blankes. more pics to follow about those.

For those of you keeping up with my job hunt, i have an interview for a CNM position in Missouri. There is only one OB in the little town, so it would be she and i. the interview is friday. i'll let you all know how it goes. i am super nervous....send good vibes my way next friday (the 29th) at about7:30 am. more later!

Great projects! I'm a slow knitter so not getting to many things finished. Good luck with the job interview. I do wish you were headed back to east TN instead of the other direction though. Marie
