Finally Finished Friday

F.........K!!!!!! I had this almost done and it got accidentally erased!!!!

So I have finished a few items this year, but this is the first Finally Finished Friday I am posting....(while watching a very weird Supernatural!)

First up:
Pattern: Basic rib pattern, slipstitch heel, round toe (but something happened with the toes, they came out weird)
Yarn: Knitted Wit HerStory, January 2017, Folded Chairs
Needle: Lantern Moon DPNs, US 1, 2.5mm - in a dark wood, which made it difficult on the darker patches.
Cast on: February 16, 2017
Cast off: March 4, 2018

I LOVE the flashing/pooling on these socks!  The yarn is a bit thick, so not sure which shoes I can wear these with, but I'll buy a pair, if I have to!

Second completed project is for the Hubs.  I made him a long scarf, he is 6 feet.  But when he's cutting wood or working at the sawmill, it gets in the way.  When the Jessica Jones cowl was released, I decided to make it for him.  He loves Jessica Jones and it would keep his neck warm, without getting in the way.
The second picture is more of the true color...more of a steel grey. So it just seems like a basic cowl, but it is a linen stitch.  It was the first time I'd used it.  I love the look of the linen stitch, but it did take me awhile.
Cast On: December 27, 2017
Cast Off: March 7, 2018
Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Rios in Cirrus Grey
Needle: Size 9, 5.50mm I think they are Hiya Hiya

I have a second one on the needles, (it was actually the first I cast-on) in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in a blue.  This one will be for me....

I will be back on Sunday....I could have done a Stash Acquisition Saturday, but it's only one ball and I just ordered some more, so I'll wait...

So that is it....I'm going to throw a link up, just in case someone else has something finished they'd like to share...

I like how your husband appreciates a cowl. That folding chairs colorway reminds me of kale pesto with sun-dried tomatoes.

I've been avoiding linen stitch because I know I'll love it but I also know it's going to take foooooooorrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer to make.

I know how slowly a crocheted linen stitch project takes, and knitting takes me about four times as long as crocheting, in general, takes me - so I can just about imagine how long that cowl took to knit. It is gorgeous.

I love Stefanie's description of the way the colorway pooled in your socks. That just makes that that much more fun. Good job, Tammy.
