FO Friday 5

I finally have an FO!! 

I finished my friend's spiral rib legwarmers and I'm really happy with how they came out. I liked the pattern a lot, and even though it was tedious at times it was still fun to knit. However, I feel like I would have liked them a bit more if instead of just having the cast-on and the bind-off edges being the ends that there was some sort of edging. Oh well, my friend really liked them and that's all that matters!

Here are some photos:

That's all for now! This afternoon I will be finally finished with my finals and will have a week off for once. I can't wait to keep knitting on my shawl

WIP Wednesday 5!

So last night I cast on Lala's simple shawl and so far I've loved knitting it! I'm knitting it out of some berroco ultra alpaca in a purple/magenta color. I had the yarn in a skein for the longest time and finally got around to winding it into a ball. I really wish that I had been able to cake it because now I have to knit with my yarn in a bowl!

Sorry for the bad picture quality, it's dark in my apartment and the cable on my needles isn't very pliable so it's very hard to take a good picture of the shawl :(

Anyways that's all for now! Check out Tami's blog for more WIPs!
