As I often do, I post in bulk. Here are a couple of knitting projetcts I did in the last months.

Here is a gray sweater I made from a pattern called "Cadet Sublime" with Sublime yarn. The yarn is really soft and looks luxurious. The pattern is, by far, the most complicated I ever did, with the V's and decreasing while following the V's pattern.


This is a scarf I made from Woolly Bully yarn. It is the coolest yarn I ever worked with. It changes colour as you go along and it changes size too. It is done in simple 1 knit, 1 purl, to show the yarn! I'm sorry about the blurry pic, it's the only one I have...


This is a simple caplet I made from a pattern from the book "Gifted". It is a little bit too short, but still cute!


And last but not least, a pair of socks with super big yarn... I can't remember the name! I found the pattern with the yarn. I'm not thrilled with the way the heel is done, but it doesn't matter, these socks are so comfy!

Very cute, each and every FO!

I also like the yarn you used in the capelet (and the yarn for the scarf looks like it was wicked fun to knit up).

Was the capelet knit top down? If so, you could rip out the cast off and knit it longer....but I'm guessing it was probably knit from the bottom up.

I found the name of the yarn I used for the caplet and socks. It's Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick. And it really is thick and quick!

I've made that same sock pattern before and agree with you about the heel.. it sucks! Cheesy  Your looks fab, though.

I really like that sweater, too.  It looks great on you and I love the color.

3 things: 1) what does FO means? 2) Yes, the scarf was very fun to knit, I loved it! 3) Sadly, yes, the caplet is knitted bottom up... It was supposed to take only one ball and I followed the pattern, but I knit really tight and that was my downfall! Tongue Also, I only had a ball of that colour on hand, so I didn't really want to go back and buy another one...

When I wear the socks, it doesn't show that the heel is not nice, but if I look at it, it shows though... well, that's the way to learn! Tongue

Sorry about that! FO means Finished Object...at least, that's how I use it anyway

I'm not sure how the LB Thick&Quick would block out, but maybe you could pull it out lengthwise while wet and hold it with pins?  That might stretch it out. But either way, it looks fab on you  Wink
