FO #91

Jodi asked if my fingerless gloves count as FO #91...um, technically yes, but they were so quick and I'm really too lazy to do a separate post for them. (Some li'l FOs just don't make it into the count.)

So here's my designated FO #91:

The boring stuff:
Infant set, socks based on Cat Bordhi's Baby Life Ring Socks; matching hat -- no pattern.
Knit in Baby Cashmerino on US3 needles.
Pattern notes: I knit the socks top-down instead of toe-up because I started them in the car and was struggling with the toe-up cast-on. I tried to do a Sherman heel, which I got on the 5th try, but then (as happens with almost all short row heels) I didn't like the way it looked so I ripped it out and did a flap/gusset heel. I used the same technique for the hat as I did for the leg of the socks, then had to add in some color because I ran out of the yellow yarn.

I love this set Julie! I've always loved the rolls on hats and they are so unusual, but great, on the socks!
