This week's two FOs are very different projects. The first was yet another swap handmade, a relatively simple pattern in basic black but a luxurious fiber content. The second was a spur-of-the-moment cast on for myself with lace and a rainbow of colors.
First, Bow Peep's Black Sheep:
I actually think that tying the bow each time you wear it would be more challenging than knitting it, but then again I've always found that challenging, along with most of the other aspects of gift wrapping. The yarn was a perfect compromise between wanting the soft halo but not wanting mohair. And as a bonus it didn't require me to knit double.
And then, the colorful sugar rush that is 198 Licks of the Lollipop:
As I say, it is very wee, so I'll have to see how easily it stays put around my neck. My preferred method of wearing triangle shawls is with the tip in front and the other points wrapped around my neck all the way. After blocking this makes it all the way around, but without much to spare. I might use some kind of pin, or sew a button onto the two end points that can fasten into any of the yarnovers.
How do you wear shawls? Have you finished up anything recently? You can find more FO Fridays floating all around the interwebz.
