So this is our first FO Friday post. If you are here and are not a knitter, an FO is a finished object. This is where we can post about projects that we have finished this week. Since I forgot to post about it last week, I am including FOs from the last 2 weeks :-)
So the first project that I have to share is my London Hat. I have a stash problem. That should be obvious based on the last post. I also have a problem using yarn that I see as special. Maybe it is a limited edition colorway, or yarn that I got on a special trip etc. So I made a vow that if I bought yarn on our trip to Europe last year, that I would use it! I won a raffle drawing for a pattern download on Ravelry in the Sticks and Stones group. I selected the pattern that I had marked on my queue to use the yarn I bought in London. We visited the shop Loop. I really loved it there. So cozy, and they even had Wollmeise! I bought one special skein of yarn for myself. It is The Uncommon Thread BFL Light in the colorway "Lust."

So I used this lovely yarn to make the Norie hat. It is a slouchy hat that has a wonderful cat's paw lace detail to it.
My next FO is the pair of socks that I was working on WIPs Wednesday.

Lastly, I have a test knit that I have finished for a friend using my handspun. It is blocking right now, so I will post pics of it next time. I cast on a shawl to knit on the plane tomorrow, so depending on how much I knit this week in New Orleans, I may have another FO for next week!
I seem to have caught a spinning bug this week. I finished the first of my SpinningFates Self Striping sock and started the cuff of the second sock. I knit a few teeth on my Hitchhiker, but I primarily spent my week spinning away. I finished my second single of the Into the Whirled BFL and plied it last Friday/Saturday. I washed it Sunday and let it dry a few days. I managed to get 216 yards of worsted weight out of it so it should make a lovely hat in the not so near future.
