FO round-up (a bit of housekeeping)

So here I was, putting my 2009 knitty retrospective together, when I realized that I failed to post not one, not two, not three, but four FOs! What?? Goes to show where my head has been this year (in Beanland)! So for record-keeping's sake, instead of one-offing it, I give you a mass post of the lost FOs of '09.

First there was one of my favorites- a bonnet for Bean.

Bean Bonnet
pattern: Baby Bonnet by Joelle Hoverson from Last Minute Knitted Gifts (Raveled)
yarn: Rowan Kid Classic (70% lambswool, 26% kid mohair and 4% nylon) - less than 1 skein
needles: US7
made for: Bean

Mod: My gauge was off using the called for size 8 needles, so I used size 7 needles instead. Besides, at the time Bean was a little younger than the 6-24 months outlined in the pattern, so it worked out well and fit her perfectly. This is one of my favorite knits-we use this all the time!

Bean wasn't the only one who got a new hat from me, B got two! This one:

pattern: Turn a Square by Jared Flood (Raveled)
yarn: Cascade Yarns 220 Heathers (100% Peruvian Highland Merino Wool) in 8013 and Noro Silk Garden (45% Silk, 45% Kid Mohair, 10% Lambswool) in 227 - less than 1 skein each
needles: US6 and US7
made for: B

And this one:

pattern: A Hat Fit for a Boyfriend by Stephanie Nicole (Raveled)
yarn: Mission Falls 1824 Wool in 004 (Charcoal) - less than 2 skeins
needles: US8
made for: B

And I finished a simple red scarf for myself:

Mr. T.
pattern: my own, using mistake rib and knitting for a long time
yarn: Rowan Kid Classic in 847 and Lana Grossa Baby Kid - 2 balls each
needles: US11
inspired by: Mr. Tumnus

Okay. Whew! Now that that's done, retrospective to follow shortly. :)
