Finished Object Friday... Sort Of

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been sort of non-existent here in the past few weeks. Believe me, I haven't stopped working on my projects! I've been in the middle of some longer term Christmas projects.. As well as finishing a lot of little ones that I'm not able to post here until after Christmas!

As well as my knitting and crocheting Christmas WIPs, I'm also in the middle of applying to graduate schools for next Fall! So between all of that, I've been a bit distracted from my regular blogging... However, I hope to get back on track very soon! Thank you for being patient!

In the meantime, here is one FO that I can share with you. I made this teddy sweater as a gift for one of my cousins for Christmas. Ravelry link in the caption!

Teddy Sweater

Anyone who's been following my blog for a while knows how much I love this pattern! This time I just followed it straight. It will fit most regularly sized animals from Build-A-Bear. Great if you need a last minute gift for the kids in your life!

FO ... Saturday?

I'm running very late this week, but I still wanted to throw up some pictures of what I have finished. Especially since I missed WIP Wednesday (I even had a picture ready! I just lost track of time..).

Anyway, so last week I had a few projects that I wasn't able to show you. But I have pictures of them now, so here they are, really quickly! The Ravelry links are in the captions, as always.

Crocheted Hot Pad

Now! Onto this week's finished projects. First, I finished up this monkey from a kit I ordered from freshstitches a month or so ago. He turned out really cute! I whipped up a quick pumpkin hat for him so that he could be part of the Halloween CAL we did with the Ravelry group.

Next, I finished my turkey, which I've shared with you on a few occasions. I love the way he turned out, even though I made a mistake! You can't really tell unless you've made the pattern though, so no harm done. I think he needs a little hat.. Maybe a fedora? Thoughts? He needs something on his head..

Alvin the Turkey

Next up, I finished this hat up this afternoon. I've already worn it and I love it! I wish I had made the ribbing one or two more rounds.. But it is long enough, so I don't want to join the yarn again. I might end up sewing a fleece lining into it. We'll see!

Divine Hat

The last thing I finished up was a cat toy for one of my friends! I saw something similar on Pinterest.. But when the link only took me to the picture, I decided to improvise it. It's not as cute as the original, but I don't think her cat will mind. I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!

Fish Bones

I'm linking up (late) to FO Fridays over at Tami's. What did you make this week?
