FO Friday

I WIP’d on Wednesday and now it’s Friday and I’ve got an FO?!  A stopped watch is still right twice a day, eh?

This is not just any FO either, this humble project started as a problem (a bleeding yarn problem) but it may be FO of the Year!

It still bled…

but I expected it and prepared for the situation appropriately (I love Synthrapol!)

First time I’ve ever blocked a Hitchhiker but I added an eyelet row, so it was called for.  It’s a great modification to an already terrific pattern.  On row 8, BO 5, K1, (YO, K2tog) to last stitch, KFB.  Love it!  Easy to remember, easy to execute, gives even more of a helping hand to potentially messy variegation.  Everything fell into place just right with this FO.

 

and then, I got to wear it!

(That’s not me, DUH!)

I might be a pink gal after all.  It surprises me every time, despite making perfect sense.  My wardrobe contains NO pink.  That makes pink the perfect pop color for me, without fail, every time.  I always hate hearing it and I always act surprised but I should know better by now.  A little pink does me good.

So, (for now), I am declaring this FO of the Year and keeping it out of the gift pile!
