On the Needles Friday - August 17th

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for On the Needles Friday. I have a couple finishes to share this week.

All I had left was the toe of the second sock when I ran out of time to complete them for the Ravellenic games. So close! I finished them during the Closing Ceremonies and took a picture to prove it.

Here they are in daytime light. These will be a gift this Christmas. I debated keeping them but I have 2 other pairs that I am definitely making for myself so thought I'd give these ones away. The pattern is Take a Hike Socks. 

Detail picture. Quick easy pattern. Very easy to memorize.

My other major finish is the Ardara cardigan. I finished it last night, not much before midnight. I admit sharing it today was part of my motivation to finish it. I am so happy with it. The pattern is relatively easy for being a cable pattern. 

I'm going to wash it this weekend and hope that it doesn't fall apart. I forced myself to only work on it this week instead of casting on something new. I have 3 more WIP's I'd like to finish before starting my fall/holiday knitting.

I love the sleeves. 

Also a reminder that tonight is Friday Night Sew-In. Here is my prize from June's FNSI that arrived last week. Between Bobbi being away and me moving it arrived a little late but still very much appreciated. You can sign up here and have a chance at winning a prize yourself. I unpacked my sewing machine this week so I might sneak downstairs tonight and try to get a little something done.
