FO Parade

There's a bit of shame in blogging when you stop. Especially when you have a craft blog and then you have a huge backlog of things you've made that you want to show off but having a post for each one after so much time just looks a little sad sometimes.
So here's to awkward silence.
A parade of some of the things I made since the summer:

Doctor Who dishcloths.
Tardis and DW logo. I had lost my crafting mojo and the fastest way to get it back is, of course, dishcloths! Especially when they're nerdy.

Pattern: Andrea's Shawl (+ Ravelry link)
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette (Edamame and Black)
Needle Size: 5mm
Ravelry project page
I wanted to use up the leftover yarn from my Shell Counterpane blanket. I had originally ordered black to make a border around the shells but I didn't like how that looked so I used it instead for this.

Pattern: Aeolian (+ Ravelry link)
Yarn: Araucania Ranco Solid
I love the edging of this shawl but not so much the body of it. So I went with a stockinette body.

Pattern: 22 leaves
Yarn: Nashua Handknits Creative Focus Worsted
I swear this is a lot prettier in person. This was a mystery KAL from September 2010. I saw the first clue knit up and just went for it. This was my first real mystery KAL. I've made projects from finished KALs but I had never participated in any current ones. This one was pretty fast paced which I really liked because I can see myself growing very impatient for clues to be posted.

Pattern: Wisp (+ Ravelry link)
Yarn: Schulana Kid Seta
Needles: 5mm
Ravelry project page
I have an unhealthy obsession with making Wisps. Immediately after casting off for this one I cast on for a black one (which I already have, but this yarn was sparkly) and I stopped myself after six rows and frogged it because I want to challenge myself and make different things. This is definitely my comfort pattern though.

I can't remember what the yarn is called, but it's your basic 100% wool worsted weight. The pattern is just a basketweave cable.

Pattern: None
Yarn: Schulana Kid Seta
The sparkle of this yarn does not show up but it's seriously amazing.

Pattern: Saroyan
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needle size: 5mm
Ravelry project page
This was actually made over a year ago and I completely forgot about it and just took a photo.

Pattern: None
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Worsted + Vanna's Choice
Hook size: 5mm and 6mm
Ravelry project page
This scarf is soooo simple but I love it so much. It actually has three flowers on the other scarf corner too but that's not shown.

I should probably make something other than shawls/scarves soon...
Now that I've gotten my crafting mojo back hopefully there won't be a need for long awkward silences and parades.
