Yes. so I haven't been posting much new stuff lately, so there (by order of completion):
Armwarmers I made for my trip to Germany (everybody told me it's gonna be really cold. pah. It was never colder than 25C, and all I brought were long-sleeved shirts.):

knit flat and seamed, except for the thumb hole.
100% acrylic something

A baby blanket for friends (I think they're due tomorrow...)- it's gonna be a girl


the yarn is called Peter Pan, it's super duper soft (55% nylon, 45% acrylic)
simple feather & Fan with garter st. borders
started: August 25th
Finished: September 28th
(But I was abroad for 2 weeks and mourning the ending of my trip for another week out of that)

A baby blanket for another friend (she's due around December- January)- Only heaven and the Gyno(sp?) know if it's gonna be a boy or a girl, so I chose a fun- non commital yarn:

Pinwheel baby blanket
really thick acrylic yarn, knit with 8mm. circs.
ended up being 300 sts. around, and edged with crochet (made by me! I didn't know I can crochet!)
finished in- get this- TWO DAYS! ( but it was Yom Kippur, so really, there was nothing else to do)

...Aaaaaand, Knitty's Topi, for a waiter in a cafe that wanted my denim hat, so I promised I'll knit him a hat instead.

made, again, with 100% acrylic (he wanted cheap and dark green)
no variations to the pattern.
started: Thursday, October 12th
finished: yesterday, Sunday, October 15th

And a kitty shot:


started: around 2 years ago
ain't she a cutie?

I can honestly say that I am extreamely jealous.

That has to be the cutest hat and the nicest color ever.

If I had a billion dollars, I would buy it off of you! Haha

I really like that pinwheel blanket, but then I'm always a sucker for super-colorful stuff. Grin  And from a fellow cat lover- what a sweetie!

thank you all so much...
zknits: I'm pretty sure, unless I made a mistake, that there are no variations.. the only thing is that I used the M size pattern, because the waiter said he has a 55cm head, which translates to 21.7in., so I went with the 22in.
calilove127: I am definately going to knit one for me too, I bought 2 100g skeins, and used about half of one for this hat.....
Exeter_Flud: no need for a billion dollars, I'm sure if you wanna have a personal swap, we can arrange something.. as I said, I got 3 hat's worth of yarn left!
