A Gallery of FO

Since this blog has been so neglected - and the projects too - I thought I would post a selection of finished objects (fo) - lest anyone get the wrong idea! I really can finish things...
FO always makes me goes back to 1997/1998. A celebrity was visiting this quaint town. Stopping in a local bar in fact. A man who in Germany would have been mobbed, but since this is Canada and we are not so impressed by hairy abs and shiny teeth, this man must have been expecting a certain degree of anonymity.
Anonymity was not to be found. My brother's drunken friend approached this star and tried to strike up a conversation. To no avail. When he persisted in speaking to this god-who-walks-among-us he was told to 'FO'. Shaking his head in disbelief he was again told to FO!
We are talking about a barely legal drunken male here. He thought this was the funniest thing he had ever heard. Turning to the rest of the bar he shouted: "David Hasselhoff just told me to FO!" The young man was escorted out amidst jeers and laughter directed at our celebrity who perhaps was able to finsh his drink in the humiliated silence (or 'privacy') he has surely grown accustomed to in North America.
Ever since then FO has been a shorthand joke in our circle - and one that has nothing to do with knitting.
At any rate here is a picture of the shawl I made for a night at the Symphony. It has very long tassels and is quite warm. My little dog is snuggly too! Wait 'til I make her model some of her sweaters. What a sight!
Tomorrow I will try to display more FO's - something appears to be wrong with my Image Device and I am far too tired to fix it.
