Finishing things

This weekend has been one of finishing things, first yesterday my forest canopy shawl, which I finished knitting quite a while ago, but hadn't got around to blocking. I'm so happy I bothered to wash it and hang it out to dry because the increase in size was incredible, it's now a wonderful big snuggly shawl. Perfect for during a heat wave - as ever my timing is impeccable. However, it will be nice for the autumn.

Secondly I finished a toy elephant for friends who are expecting their first baby (this is just a quickly taken photo this evening, I'll get a better one tomorrow in the daylight. I'm still debating whether to make him a little scarf or waistcoat or jacket or something.
Now I'm doing some Innocent Smoothie hats for their big knit and I've even crocheted a flower to go on top of one of them using a pattern from a cool crochet blog Attic 24. The hats make a good chance to get creative and try different designs, patterns, colourwork, embroidery etc. and it's all for a good cause.
