FO Friday!

This has been a very productive week for me!! I've finished four projects! Granted one of them was started this week as well, but this brings my total list of open WIPs down to eight. Plus one that I started years ago that isn't listed on Ravelry. So, nine. But that's much better than it was! My current goal is to finish up a lot of my WIPs and use up a lot of my stash! It has exceeded the storage room I have for it.. So far I'm doing pretty well with both of these things.

The first thing I finished this week (which I've actually already talked about here) was this teddy bear as part of a gift set I was making. You can find more info about and pictures of him on Ravelry here.


Next up was a sweater for this little teddy. As you can see, it's a little bit big for him! I was modifying a larger teddy bear sweater to make it for this one. It needs a few more tweaks to get the modifications just right for this bear. But I do have my notes just in case anyone is interested in the mean time! You can find it on Ravelry here.


Then, the main part of the gift (the part that was actually commissioned), a toddler sweater! Teddy's sweater was made to match. I talk more about the sweater in this blog post. The Ravelry page for it can be found here.


And last but not least, I just finished my brown cow earlier today! He was part of a crochet-along with the freshstitches group on Ravelry. I'm really excited about him! He turned out just as cute as I was hoping! I have more pictures of him on my Ravelry page, including one of him with our calves out in the barn! He is nameless so far. Does anyone have any ideas?


I'm linking up with FO Fridays this week! You can check out more finished objects on her page.

    1. Thank you! It made me smile to come home to an inbox full of your lovely comments! You made my day. :)

      And I like Doris, but I kind of want it to be a boy... I'm not sure!
