I have a small parade of Finished Object to share. I finished them off over the weekend and should probably get myself back to work.
First up, I spun some merino which I hand painted and then navajo-plied. (Not bad for my first try if I do say so myself).
Became Athrun’s open fingered gloves for this year.
Once they were finished, I couldn’t get him to take them off.
Then I made a matching hat.
Which I had to frog three times due to twisted stitches and gauge issues.
It worked out in the end though. I absolutely love the fabric of this hat. I might do nothing but navajo-ply in the future to get this same texture in all of my hand spun. It is luscious.
Also, Athrun wanted a really big pom-pom
Behold! My very first pom-pom.
I also finally finished Brock’s Cobblestone Pullover. The photos kind of speak for themselves.
I realize my suede boots aren’t particularly festive, but that it is finally cold enough to wear them gets me into a holiday sort of mood. Plus, they are just really awesome boots. Last winter, all I needed were these tough guys and a pair of wool socks and I was ready to brave the 10 + inches of snow on the ground. (I did treat them, but as you can see some street salt still got to them.
Speaking of wool socks, and other woolens, I have a promotion running the weekend after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season. From 12:01am on Friday, November 25th through 11:59pm on Monday, November 28th, all items in the Tiny Dino Studios etsy shop will be 15% off with the coupon code BOOTS2011
I am working on some new hand knits and some really color saturated sock yarns for the winter season. They should be in the shop within the next few days. You should stop by and check them out!
