Picture Post

I received some amazing Blythe goodies from Nikkisixx666 for the blythe/pullip swap on craftster
Lovely cords and a tunic top/dress if she's feeling naughty for Dylan
The hat I crocheted from MK Carol's pattern posted on craftster
And a dress for Lola


On the knitting front here are some FO's
Cropped Bulky Mini Cardi from Fitted Knits
Here I am modeling it in my lovely PJ's
I got gauge but this turned out a wee bit to tiny for me. It looks nice open but if I button it up it appears that I've eaten one too many fried Twinkies. But a sweater that knits up in two nights is nothing to complain about.

Here's a jellyfish
This was a quick knit too, taking just under a week. The body is done in Blue Sky Alpaca's brushed Suri, which is lovely and soft with the appearance of mohair but none of the itchies. The downside is it sheds like a Persian cat. The contrast is Cascade 220 and I know the pattern calls for dk weight but cascade is a light worsted at best.
Overall its a lovely lace pattern, my only complaint is that the lace runs follow the same direction when flat so the sleeves are not symmetrical.

I finished the Spunky Club FOTM for August "Celebration"
This sucker took me awhile to complete, its sock weight 330 yards of navajo plied goodness. I'm going to turn it into jaywalkers.
