A Very Victoria FO Friday!

Wow! While most of us are struggling to finish holiday projects, it’s been slim pickings around here for FO’s this week. Luckily, Victoria came to my rescue with a few FO’s she’s been saving up!

Victoria is the lovely head of our buying and inventory department who will be leaving us soon to spend more time with her family. We are going to miss her so much! I’m so glad she was able to share some of her work here before she leaves us in a few weeks. We are all so sad to see her go, but are excited that she’ll be able to hang out with her kids more...and maybe even knit more too! She’ll still continue to make the fabulous Victoria S stitch markers that we all love so much too!


Victoria has been on a shaw-knitting kick for quite a while now, and it’s so fun to see all of the lovely things she’s made. This week she brought in 3 finished shawls!


The lovely Citron done in Merino Lace by Skacel:



The Mara Shawl a free pattern from Madelinetosh done in Tosh DK Amber Trinket:



And this lovely shawl of which I can’t remember the name, done in Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 in Ivory:



Just beautiful Victoria!


The only other FO I have to share is a fun holiday-related one. Last weekend, I got the bug to knit some Christmas ornaments for a few folks. I couldn’t find one I loved online, so I decided to make up my own. This is what I came up with:





It was super simple: Grab some green scrap yarn, Cast on 2 sts. Increase every couple of rows until you have a decent sized tree. Bind off. Pick up a few stitches on the bottom and knit a few rows until you have a little trunk. Weave in all of your ends and stash dive again until you find some red yarn or another color of your choice. Now dive into your button stash and find some fun lovelies. Sew on buttons and voila! Cute tree ornament done! I made a few last weekend and will probably make a few more this coming weekend to give as little nifty gifties with presents. Who doesn’t love a cute little tree ornament?!


So that is it for this week! Check back here next Friday, when I reveal a super top secret project that we’ve been working on around here...so fun!!! Happy Holidays to you all!
