Some more FOs
Mohair scarf for a child, simple mesh of 1tr, 1ch crochet. Found a lonely ball of this when looking for something else, must have come with an estate sale.
Stashbusting crochet scarf, the pattern looks like squares but it's actually a row by row pattern. Discovered that beads sit better (for a reversible item such as this) if just pushed onto the loop instead of threaded up at the beggining.
Tuck-away tote. It's finished, bar sewing on the second disk at the end. Although it came out the right size, it's rather shorter than I thought it would be. Not sure how much use it will be!
Sideways machine-knitted baby hat, another stashbuster. This is from Diana's pattern, although I didn't hang a hem, I just left it to curl. You can't see the edge anyway in this photo.
Not at all knitty, but the estate where I work had a wreath workshop, and this was my attempt. I think the pine bits were a bit big, but never mind. There's both mistletoe and holly in there!
Oh, and this arrived in my inbox today - Knit for Peace. They want lots of knitted items for various causes. Go take a look!
