We're off! How exciting! :) Can't wait to see what everyone's working on!

pink and green cowlIt's completely ludicrous that I already have an FO, but it really is a tiny, uncomplicated one: I've been whipping out these neckwarmer things to put in my store come fall, and I've got them down to where even I (the slowest knitter in the universe, I swear) can finish one in a couple hours of watching TV.

I mentioned over on the flickr group that one of the projects I had in mind was a pair of knitted shoes. Well, I couldn't wait to get started, and Saturday, I figured out how to do it. I have one finished shoe, but I'll wait till I've got the other one done and a tutorial written before I show it off.

I'm not sure yet what else I'm going to make... I'm hoping seeing what a few of you are doing will inspire me. ;)

Yay, our first FO! I love those neck-warmers. They look so very cozy.

LOL I also felt silly with my FO yesterday, but I just found myself with all this free time and great TV on DVD to watch and well....

I love the colors in your neckwarmer! They remind me a spring, but would provide a welcome splash of color in late fall/winter.

Amy - They are! I'm actually really surprised at how warm they are... and, with the metallic thread in it, not scratchy at all. I think I'm keeping this one. ;)

Marlena - I guess we shouldn't feel too silly... "quick" is the whole point of this, right? Hehe.

Thanks, both of you! :)
