FO Friday - Good Things Happen in Threes

No less than three finished objects today! I know this will probably backfire on me and I should leave some for weeks where I don't finish anything, but I love all of them and am eager to get them posted, so there! ;)

My cousin and his wife had their first child last week - a girl whom they'll name Ida. Fortunately I got the chance to go see her last Monday and wanted to bring something along for her. I didn't get much notice, so time was limited, but in the end I figured out how to make a hexipuffy "I" for her, and don't think it turned out too bad :)
I'm afraid she didn't care too much, but her parents loved it, so that's always something ;)

Since I'll be seeing my sister tonight, I finished the dragon mitts for my nephew.

And finally my favourite - Tuesday evening I bound off the last stitch of the Wingspan. To begin with I'd been unsure about how the colours knitted up, but the further I got, the more I loved it! This will be PERFECT for my friend's birthday! I loved the pattern as well - a lovely fun, quick and easy knit.
I have the exact same yarn in a blue colourway as well, so I'm contemplating making another one after all... ;)
