I finished another project yayy.  This time, it's a beanie for my boyfriend:

Working on an eternity scarf from stash yarn:

I did a gauge swatch knitting flat but forgot that I'd be knitting this in the round.  Sad  It looks smaller than expected but hopefully a good blocking will stretch it out to the correct length.  If not, I hope it looks ok as a cowl!

This is a double knit, reversible beanie knit from Knitpicks Essential (from stash, yay!)  The logo is the "renegade" logo from Mass Effect.  I started knitting this beanie for my boyfriend sometime in February (after the release of Mass Effect 2) and finished it in April...only to find that it was an inch too short for his head. Sad  It sat unworn for a few months before I frogged and reknit the crown about 2 weeks ago.  Finished blocking on Halloween.  Now he has a new winter hat. Smiley

He's normally camera-shy but was sweet enough to model for me.

At first he was like...

But then he lol'd. Tongue

Great job Rinoa!! (seaming isNOT a favorite part of the process for me) And a very pretty pattern, too.  Enjoy wearing it!!

I have done a baby quilt today.  Just thrown together in yellow, orange print flannel and some ribbon cross-hatch on the front.  All from stash, nothing purchased...next up, a vintage baby romper in the process of being sewn.  =]

had to verify that I'll take the knitting over seaming anyday!

Hahaha I saw your original post and then your updated post.  I love the emphasis you had to make.  Grin

Thanks for the kind feedback everyone! Grin

Next time try doing both sleeves at once...it'll make it go much faster, both sleeves will be the same and then you'll have both finished at the same time Smiley

Wow, it never occurred to me to do that.  I'll make sure to do that when I knit my next sweater, whenever that may be. Smiley

I haven't played Castle Crashers in a while so I didn't immediately recognize Rammy and Giraffey.  They are SOOOOOOOOOOO cute.

Yay, I finally finished my cardi!

The entire sweater, even the buttons, is from stash. Smiley

Edit:  I crocheted these in April right after I made Cutethulhu but forgot to take pictures~

I finally FINALLY finished my first seamed sweater!  I started this in July. I had the back, fronts, and one sleeve knitted up for the longest time but didn't finish the second sleeve until about 6 weeks after everything else.  Then, the finished pieces languished in my knitting pile for about a month before I had the motivation to block them.  Started the seaming process around the start of football season and completed the finishing in about a week.  Took pictures today. Smiley

The pattern is the #09 Cropped Cardigan by Robin Melanson from the Spring/Summer 2010 issue of Vogue Knitting.  It's knit up in GGH Soft Kid.  The mohair and wool content means I can actually get some wear out of it this year, despite my procrastination on the finishing.  I'm not a fan of the blocking process (it took three hours and gave me a backache) but I really like seaming, especially straight side seams.
