As I mentioned on WiP Wednesday, Mr. Right's Avast finally counts as an FO -- zipper and all. I'm super pleased with the way it turned out, and can't wait for him to wear it when he gets home. Apologies for the weak pic, but it's dark around here these days!
And now a close-up of the infamous zipper in all its antique brass glory. Ooh! Ahh!
Yay for sweaters that *finally* end! And even more yay for sweaters that finally end well. Phew! It's such a relief.
In other FO news (I know, right? More than one in a week! Crazy!)... Remember all that felt?
I hooked it up with a pile of embroidery floss...
And a few hair clips...
(Pretend that I remembered to take a picture of the clips, okay? They look like these.)
Courtesy of the Purl Bee (the awesome craft blog by the folks at Purl SoHo), the world's cutest hair clips. Pattern is here. I LOVE them. They're fairly easy to pull off, though I have broken 2 embroidery needles trying to get the embroidery floss through the felt. And I think they look kind of amazing.
I was so excited, I made a pink one, too...
Actually, this is what made me think of turning Elijah into Eliza. How cute would this little elephant be with a rose hair clip on her ear? Seriously cute, is what I think. Either way, I have 3 more to make this weekend, and then I'll be set for Christmas. At least in the hair clip department. Once I get the felt out of my system, it'll be back to elephanting and vesting around here. But I gotta say, it was kind of a fun break.
My other HUGE project at the moment is Mr. Right's 30th birthday. He's finally hitting the big 3-0, so we're celebrating in grand style. I've been scheming for 6 months now, and it's all coming together next weekend. Man, it's exhausting to keep a secret from your SO for 6 months. It's killing me! I can't divulge any more details without spoiling the awesome surprise, but I'll post the whole story and pictures once the cat's out of the bag. Promise.
Hope y'all have a spectacular weekend! You should start it by checking out everyone else's FO Friday successes over at Tami's blog.
