I spun up this hand-painted BFL from Greenwood Fiberworks. It’s about 200 yards of aran weight. And it is SO SQUISHY!
Those are really nice!
Thanks! They were a big hit!
I tend to forget to post a lot of things I make. My list says I’m close to 30 but I’m sure there are more. I need to find & post them! Never thought I’d manage to make 50 but I hadn’t expected this crazy year.
I finished up my first Hobbes.
He turned out so good!
Oh I him!!
Hobbes turned out so great!!! And it seems like you are on schedule for getting the two done!
Thank you! No rush on the second one. He’s for me, or, in all likelihood, will be stolen by one of my children and loved to death.
omg LOVE!!! so cute!!!
I spun up about 7.25 oz of Merino wool in mid-October colors. The thread is here.
That colorway is GORGEOUS, @tendstowardschaos!
I have a few projects underway, but haven’t finished much in awhile and I think that is contributing to my general sense of unease (along with the dumpster fire that is reality these days). BUT today I did get a whole bunch of xmas gifts wrapped up! Could I b e working on more timely tasks and chores? Sure, but that’s not what I did!
Gorgeous @tendstowardschaos! @TheMistressT I believe we all deserve adult merit badges any time we do something productive these days. And doing such an important tasks months ahead of time is a truly responsible thing! It’s way more important than something mundane as doing laundry.
Beautiful…do you have a project in mind?
No. But, I’ll figure something out.
I finally finished my It-Felt-Never-Ending blanket project. I decided not to do a plaid border all the way around once I did the top and bottom edges because I really liked it. I wanted the blanket to have a cool edging not the edging to have a neat blanket, if that makes sense.
I made the project up using a screen grab of my friend’s very favorite characters and stitch fiddle to make a chart. My original plan was “a nice throw blanket” and ended up with a 7’ square-ish beast. Hopefully she likes it cuz it’s taking over her apartment later today haha. It’s not at all square, I flare out a bit as it works upward from accidental added stitches… but I think that… adds to the charm. Yes, yes. Charm. She and I are yarning buddies and we always say you dont want to make a perfect project and anger any gods so it actually works for this gift. It is due to be delivered today so I feel comfortable posting now. I dont think she will bump into this post while at work.
This is flat out adorable! I love the plaid on the top and bottom and think it was a great choice to do a simple thing on the sides. This will be treasured.
Thank you! She just face timed me and it’s already decked out on her bed under a pillow she has of the same two characters- yay!
I can’t even wrap my head around how this is done…just such a special blanket…so many hours of labor and love! It turned out wonderful…the plaid at the top and bottom are just enough…wow…bet you are glad to be done as well…but of course, there is always another project to be done…lol
