Many FO's this week

We've been having fun with baby projects and Elaine added to our inventory with this soft diagonal baby blanket and a cute pink cap.
Kathleen is in the homestretch of yet another Gansey sweater. It's her favorite pattern, as you can tell by how quickly she whips through one a week or so.
Liz finished her block pattern baby blanket which will be added to the inventory also.
And Maureen finished the Pelerine, a shoulder shawl pattern by the great Elizabeth Zimmermann.
This will be added to the inventory for our local nursing home.
Another item for the nursing home is also another Elizabeth Zimmermann design called the Ribwarmer. This is what you saw on my needles last week and it took me just a week to finish it. Since it is all garter stitch and some short row knitting it was a very fast project to complete, to say the least. My only stumble was trying to figure out how to lay it out and what edges to seam together.
I "raveled" a knitter in Ireland who made the same ribwarmer and through the magic of email, she was able to walk me through the steps and VOILA! It was finished! Thank you so much for your help, Lindy!
I decided it needed a little help keeping closed so I knitted a little frog closure which I found here:
This was so much fun to knit I may have to go through my stash and find another 400 yards of yarn to make some more. Hmmm...I think I have some raspberry Encore just waiting to be used somewhere......

I love the way your group looks out for others with your stitches. I really do. I just wanted to say that.
