Actual Fiber Content

I know, don't fall down. I told you I've been working on stuff! The thing is, two of the things I've finished (seriously, get up) are super-secret knitting.
Here's some other FO's...

I've finished a scarf. This one but in magenta.
I also joined a Morbid and Macabre swap and made these...
That second picture is supposed to be these ghosties. They came out of the washing machine looking like snakes! I tried to knit them but the needles kept falling out (DPNs. Not my strong suit.) so I made a crochet version using the same numbers used in the knit version. hmmm. Didn't quite come out the same. sigh. All 3 ghostsnakes and the skull took a little under 2 hours to make!
So that's actually seven FO's! But only 3 that I have pictures of.
Then there's this...
My first ever custom made yarn! I'm such a geek that I had some yarn made to match my favorite bag. But only because I was also buying this DPN holder that also matches!
Red Corset Designs rocks! She makes custom color yarn and gorgeous needle holders. The DPN roll was only $15. My only irk is that it holds my 6" DPN's perfectly but my 8" ones are still roaming free. But the thing's so pretty, who cares!
Feeling pretty, Ruth!

Oh, I needed that laugh so bad! Those Halloweenies are so funny. I especially like the ghosts--are they finger puppets? The skull is pretty awesome, too, though.

Here's what I think I know about Ruth- I never know what will be out there when Google Reader brings up 5element and I am so NEVER disappointed and generally surprised. You are too cool.

I love that needle roll. The colors are great! Shoot! Now I might need one.

Chris said...

That skull is cool!

Awesome skull. Your boys are so lucky to have you for a mom.

Julie said...

I was going to say your "ghosts" look like something just a wee bit different than a snake ;-)

Great yarn and needle cases!

Love the skull.

As for you 8", all is not lost. They'll fit (an no longer be roaming free), if you fold the flap higher before you roll it.

Does that make sense?

I've got everything from 6-10" in that thing.
