It's FO week!!

Yep, for FO number deux see below!

VooDoo Wrist Warmers from Knitty

Debbie Bliss Baby Cashemerino in white and Plassard Laser yarn in blue. The Plassard yarn is interesting, better than fun fur IMHO ;)! Not a bad knit, and since I had learned a lot about stitches and ribbing since my first one, the second one turned out better and my button hole was better as I understood what the directions meant. I started these last fall, then other objects took my attention and it kept being put off. Well thanks to the WIP Roundup at Knitty Coffeeshoptm , I decided to get my butt in gear and finish the smaller ones, now I can concentrate on more socks, ;) and some summer tops for me! Yay! One more quick FO tomorrow, another flower washcloth and I am good to go!

So, it's almost Friday...yay! 4 days off too! Not on/call too too!! BTW! This is blog post #101, I had decided long ago when I hit post 100 (which I never thought I would!) I would give a prize to the first commentor. (which I too never thought I would have!) The winner of that is Aija! Have you seen her socks?? She does unreal sock knitting! She chose to have her own Sockfish..so I'll be making both of ours this weekend!

My quizzerama winner was Michelle, her prize should be arriving at her house any day. We had many an email going back and forth during this past fall/winter and got to know each other pretty well. She was my first swap mate and cheered me up more than she realized during that time! Thanks!

Have a nice weekend everyone! Stay dry and safe!

Lookin good! Aren't those buttonholes tricky at first? Glad the roundup is helping your WIPs list shrink.
