Are you ready? This is going to be a long one. Mostly filled with pictures and little explanation. Today is the day for the FO Parade!
I mentioned earlier this month that I just couldn't stand to think about blogging for each project I've completed since the last time I'd written. I'd forever be behind. Instead I'm just giving you the highlights - a picture or two, the pattern name, yarn and needle size. I'll let you know where the knit now lives and perhaps a comment about the piece, but that's about it. So don't fret about needing to read a lot. And if you make it to the end, thanks!! :)

taralyn1104 on Rav) as a Christmas gift. I didn't have enough of the Kenai to make it the main color so I reversed them. Definitely a different outcome but I still like it.
If you're here, you've made it to the end....I told you it was a long one!! I've got a list of WIPs that I'd like to share, but I'll save that for another day. The list is somewhat extensive, but enjoyable nonetheless. I've linked each FO to my project page, design and designer. You can find more details on my project pages, or leave a comment about what you'd like to know more about and I'll be sure to get back to you. If you leave your Rav name, I'd be happy to message you on Ravelry.
