Misc FO's

My first foray into Intarsia or color work. I designed this for my buddy Steve who is a diehard Steelers fan. We work in a refrigerated warehouse. The temperature on the meat and/or dairy dock is between 30 and 40 degrees farenheit but the freezer ranges from 10 degrees on the dock to minus 15 in the ice cream room. Since Steve works in the freezer, this comes in handy.

Addison's best friend Beth's Mom is just starting to undergo Chemo. I made 4 hats for her. The first was a plain hat made out of self striping Mohair. This is the second. It is out of 100% Cashmere and done in a ridge stitch with a broken rib ribbing.

This is a fingerless glove that is made out of yarn I spun! I got the roving this is made from at Rhinebeck last fall when I got my first "real" spindle (a Golding .5 oz beauty).

These are lace socks I made for Granny Annie for Christmas.
