It probably was not the smartest idea I've had -- signing up for the 12-pair sock challenge and making my first pair of the year on size 0 needles. (Remember, sock-knitting is not one of my favorites.) However, I am glad to report that I am done with sock #1 in pair #1 with almost 1/2 the month left to get the other done.
To keep myself from self-inflicted impalement on those size 0s, I calmed myself by making a couple of other quick, fun projects:
The Long Longer Longest scarf - see the Purse Scarf pattern- is my 2nd FO of the year. I made this from 2 skeins of Nashua Equinox that I bought on clearance at my LYS.
Also works well as a Babushka:
And for the third FO of the year, may I present the Choo Choo Hat (my own design, albeit a simple one) made for my 3-year-old nephew who is wild about trains.
