Journey-Along | Winners & FO's

The time has arrived to wrap up our Journey-along and that means I have my final projects to share and a the giveaway winners to announce! First up, the FO's...

This was done quite awhile ago:


This amazing shawl is currently on display at Firefly Fibers and I can't wait to wear it! Knit in a worsted weight yarn with a very generous finished size, it's super warm and snuggly and great for snowy days like today.

Pattern: Onward from Journey by Shannon Cook

Yarn: Pure Wool Worsted by Rowan in Bottle

Raveled: Onward

I also finished these:


Climb was so much fun to knit (all 3 times) because the stockinette patterning makes it perfect for 'on-the-go' sock knitting. I cast these on during out trip to Colorado this last summer and threw caution to the wind and knit from both ends of the ball - my inner perfectionist squawked a little at the uneven stripes, but I eventually got over it because, after all, how serious can I get about crazy fluorescent socks? 

Pattern: Climb from Journey by Jane Richmond

Yarn: Fluormania by Regia in Neon Flowers (7188)

Raveled: Climb - v3

And, this was finally finished:

ABM_1416858114I can honestly say that I love this sweater and the yarn. The project sat hibernating for quite awhile, but once I picked it back up this fall, it went fast. With the cold winter we have ahead of us, this is one sweater that is going to get a workout - I've barely taken it off since it was dry just over 2 weeks ago. I really love it!

Pattern: Inland from Journey by Jane Richmond

Yarn: Nature Spun Chunky by Brown Sheep in Grey Heather

Raveled: Inland

Time ran out and I didn't get to knit Shannon's gorgeous Antrorse, but it is in the queue and it will be cast on since I have some sweater fun planned for 2015! Details coming soon...
