This has been the week of getting projects done, off my plate and into the hands of someone else. :) Earlier in the week I completed an afghan that took a year to make, intended for Trinity. Today I complete two Christmas gifts. Not Christmas 2011 but Christmas 2010. (So you can see why I'm so excited!!)
First of all, today I finished an infinity cowl for Tabatha. I found it on ravelry, and you can view the pattern at http://brookeanndove.blogspot.com/2010/12/holy-crap-i-need-present-pronto.html. I started it last night and finished this afternoon. I think I spent 3-4 hours on it all together.
And secondly, I completed a pair of crocheted socks for Tyler. This pattern was a real find because the designer created a template that can be adapted to any yarn weight and gauge. (http://www.crochetandknitting.com/sockstemplate.htm) These socks are bulky weight made with a J-10 hook. The first was done in several sessions and felt like it took a long time because I was adjusting the template along the way and measuring the sock for Tyler's foot. The second sock was super easy and quick, taking me 3 hours.
