FO Friday: For Good and Burnished

I have to say this has been in a “draft” state since before New Years. I never seemed to get a photo of my newly finished yarn! The Hello Yarn 100% BFL in the Burnished colorway is done! I’m really pleased with this. It’s somewhere between a fingering and a DK with a few clumps of bulky in there for good measure. This is probably the most even I have spun on the wheel to date! (I’m sure this will keep happening as I spin more often!)

I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised by this. As fiber it really didn’t look like it would turn out this lovely. I had it in my bin as “practice” fiber or that fiber that you really aren’t excited about but it will make a good learning opportunity. I have to say I changed my mind when I finished it up!

I’m not sure what it will be yet. I’m thinking a cowl of some sort. I have 301 yards to play with!

The other finished object is another For Good hat by Megan Williams . I loved the one I knit for my bestie so much I had to cast one on for myself. This one was finished on teh 21st right before my husband and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary that night. The red flower button matches my red trench coat perfectly!

If you want to see more FO’s, head on over to Tami’s!

Until next time…
