One half an FO?*

Look what I finished last night:

Isn't it pretty? And sooo comfortable--I absolutely love this pattern.

Here's a couple of closeups:

I love the cuff, but because I always have problems with too-tight bindoffs, I used a Size 4 needle to bind off, and it's a little looser than it probably should be. But it's very easy to get on and off, so I like it!

Now--I've got to beat that dreaded Second Sock Syndrome!

*Is it "an" or "a?" Would be "a finished object" but "an FO?" I need an English teacher, quick!

Nice feather-and-fan sock! I like the colors. I think that it's 'a'. Of course, it's been awhile since Honors English Comp II.

According to Dr. Grammar ( it's "an." Love the sock - I am soooo digging that color.

You use "an" if it's prior to a vowel sound. "A" preceeds a consonant.

So it would be correct if you say "an F.O." (like "eff oh").

And it would also be correct if you say "a FO" (like "foe"), which is how I say it.

Which feather and fan pattern is that? I need to read back farther and see what yarn you're using - the pattern/yarn combo looks SOOOOO squishably soft and comfy! I have been looking at a F&F pattern in a Nancy Bush pattern book to make for my mom for Christmas or birthday.
