    Section Two - Finished thread

    Please enter your finished objects here. I keep a spreadsheet of all of the entries, and the accumulated points. This is my first time I have tried this, but the hyperlink below should allow you to view the spreadsheet, track where you are, and make sure I have everything accurate. Points will be awarded as follows (one point each):
    1. Starting a project (date, pic of materials/tools before you start)
    2. Finishing a project (pic of finished project - projects started before November 1st may still be entered, and accumulate a point for finishing the project)
    3. Your finished item is a gift
    4. Your finished item is a charitable donation
    5. You used a pattern designed by a Fiberkind member (marketplace or not)
    6. You feel like your finished item is large enough you deserve an extra point for an extra "large" project - please express why and it will be reviewed. I've been trying to decide how to "quantify" this and I can't think of a reasonable way. So - plead your case if you feel like you need to, and we'll go from there.
    You can post all of the information in one comment if you would like. Be sure to bring the "chatter" to the chatter thread for random drawings!!! Ooohhhhhs and Aaaahhhhh over finished projects are always awesome too.

    I look forward to seeing all of your works of art!

    As we finish our projects, if you can please put the points you are eligible for along with required photos (beginning photo can also reference a post in the chatter thread if you want) it will make things easier for me. :-)

    I am thinking if you list the corresponding numbers on your finished post as listed in post 1, that would be quite helpful.

    I will do a call out towards the end for those started but not finished in time so in progress points count. :-)

      Here's my first project finished, it was a WIP from last month. A pair of socks going to my DSIL in New Zealand. Regia yarn, vanilla 2x2 rib, as that is his preference.
      ​​​​​​
      I believe this makes me eligible for:

      #2: finished item
      #3: gift

      And my second project finished, fingerless gloves for myself. I'm working on a pattern for these, as I'd like to make more.
      Th​​​​is is a modification of "Perfect Fit Mitts", yarn is Knit Picks Felici.
      These match a set already completed of socks and shawl. I may have enough left for ear warmers 😀

      I believe this list makes me eligible for the following entry:

      #2 - finished item.

          Our weather forecast is for cooooold! Next Wednesday's low is forecasted for 6 degrees and a high of 27. I don't normally do my front porch pot of greens until Thanksgiving but I'm afraid my pot of dirt will be frozen solid. I'm fortunate to have a variety of mature evergreens so I take my garden wagon and go around snipping greens. I gathered Blue and Green Spruce, Yew, and Pine. The sticks are suckers from our Silver Maple. Since it's a bit early for Christmas decorations, I put a fall bow in for now.

          Before and after:

          ETA: My porch is ready for the holidays! I just have to swap out the fall bows for Christmas bows after Thanksgiving. My dad made the wooden "coach" lantern for me years ago. He passed away two years ago so it is a special decoration. We get strong winds on our porch so decorations have to be heavy and I've had problems using it since we moved here. I persuaded hubby to fix the problem since it was a sentimental decoration. He built a bigger bottom and put an old round weight in it.

              I finished a WIP (November 4), the 2nd of 2 blankets for expected twins (thankfully, they are still not born--we're hoping they'll hold off for at least another week, since they're due mid-December). I used Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee Sugarwheel in Petits Fours Galore colorway.

              I believe this qualifies me for points for each of these 3:
              1. Finishing a WIP.
              2. It is a gift
              3. I used a pattern from a member, DistractedKnits (I did 2 blankets and it's such a cute and easy pattern! )

                I love the way the colors worked out and I really love the addition of that green with the "baby" colors. It turned out beautiful.

                Thank you. It was a self striping yarn, and I tried to pick a fairly neutral colorway since I didn't know if was for a boy or a girl. I've since learned both of the babies are boys, so I'm glad for the colors that are more "boy colors".
