FO Friday 3.1.13

Been a little quiet on the blog this week and I apologize, I was on vacation (YAY!!!) and I intended to post while away but I ended up being sick the whole time (BOOOO!!!). Lets just say it was a very restful vacation.

But I do have some FOs to show you!

FInished the second of the pair of Penguins as well as an all Purple Penguin. All three are for a member of my bowling league.

For the black penguins I used spare acrylic - Red Heart Super Saver in black, white & grey tweed
Mystery Marden's Yarn in shiny hot blue
and Everyday Soft in baby yellow
And for the Purple Penguin I used Mystery Marden's Yarn in three shades of purple
Used the momma penguin pattern from Amigurumi World

Next I was able to complete a little moose for my friend Aly, her sister-in-law just had a baby and went moose hunting while 6 months pregnant so she thought this would be a great gift for baby Hudson, I agreed. She also asked me to sew his initials on the paw.

Pattern: Moose from Crocheted Softies by Stacey Trock (Fresh Stitches)
Yarn: Bernat Super Value in Rustic Heather, Red Heart Super Saver in white & black

I had a lot of resting time on vacation like I had mentioned so I was able to actually work on something while watching tv -- although it didn't go quickly as I got tired easily -- I probably got more done because I was sick and inside instead of out and about actually enjoying myself. What's nice is that I have a finished project to share and it's NOT a stuffie AND it's for ME!!! Not usually the way things go around here, but I intentionally brought "me" items on vacation to work on :-)

Yarn: Marden's Mystery Yarn in Hot Blue & Chocolate Brown

I really like it and will use it a lot. Was originally thinking of making it my project bag, but will have to line it if I keep with that thought as I could see myself loosing a lot of hooks that way.

Hooking up with Tami's Amis to see all the other FOs.

Check out my Facebook Page for more photos of these and other projects! While you're there, "Like" my page :-)
