FO Frenzy

There have been a rush of finished projects lately and I'm sorry it's taken me so long to write about them!
First, the infamous Obot for Owen. This was completed the day before Easter and was presented to my boy in lieu of a huge basket of sugar candy. I love this robot and the great thing is that it wasn't nearly as scary to seam as I thought it was going to be!
The pink socks you may recognize as a Project Spectrum project from last month. They were actually finished a few weeks ago, but they've been busy being on my feet and so therefore not in top modeling condition. The orange socks were my first socks using the Magic Loop method and they did work up quickly. I used #2 US Addi Naturas and though I like the needles, I don't know that I'd use them again for socks. The join isn't very smooth and I found myself wrestling with them with every row.
The orange socks came with me and Owen to the park last week. It was so nice outside and the sock just begged to spend some time in the swings. Plus, we found a fellow Project Spectrum April friend there.
Orange sock, meet yellow flowered tree!

The oranges and yellows are so pretty! Too bad I can't wear them...they make me look like I have jaundice.

I love the obot! How cute!

I know what you mean about Addi Natura: the join really is not very smooth. Try Addi's metal needles: super smooth join, really ideal for magic looping! (realy pretty socks!)

That is one fabulous robot! I love how he has the little loop on the top of his head so we can hang him up.
