Finished Object Friday

Just a quick Friday post heading into the long weekend, because a couple of things are done, and I’m like a kid with a new drawing wanting to show everyone.

First, the final spinning tally for this year’s Tour de Fleece.

The middle purple skein is from April, I think; I included it so you can see where I’m going with the colour progression. That skein is a bit thinner than the rest, but my imaginary spinning friends assure me that it’ll all come out okay once it’s knit up.

Also, yesterday I finished up the last sample for the scarves to go with the Backroad Hats. Woo!

The buttons on that top cowl-length sample are a custom size of a design I found in lindabelinda’s Etsy shop; I’m so pleased with how they worked out.

  1. “Imaginary knitting friends.” BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!

  2. I can’t get enough of that drawing! It is FABULOUS! Knitting/spinning good,too.

    1. Thank you so much. There’s something freeing about drawing for a four-year-old: he just wants a picture, and isn’t likely to be critical of the skill level, so I could relax and have fun instead of obsessing about whether it was any good. I think I’ll pretend I’m drawing for him when I do my next design submission; maybe then it’ll be less painful.
