Knitting projects we survived
For now, we've only got pictures of one, because we didn't have much time to take pictures before we got it in the mail. Now that we're uploading to dA and all, hopefully that will give us a kick in the pants to go out and take pictures of our other finished objects, in better lighting.

We made this scarf for Elinox. We got the pattern for free online: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://aroundnround.blogspot.com/2006/12/cats-paw-scarf.html">http://aroundnround.blogspot.com/2006/1 ... scarf.html</a><!-- m --> - it's one version of cat's paw lace. (Of course, there are other animals with the same general paw print shape, which is why we chose it, but there seems to be a high correlation between knitting and cat ownership...thus the traditional name.)

We lost track of the yarn label during the course of knitting, so I can't tell you exactly what it is, but it's a sock yarn and we used the stated needle size without doing gauge, so it ended up being wider than the pattern states and that was fine with us.

And the close-up:

The reddish speck is probably rooibos tea. ^^; If you look to the lower left of the paw print nearest that, yes, there is a kitty hair. Pooka didn't get close while we were working on it but her fur mysteriously ends up everywhere.

And it's beautiful in person! The blue is great and the wolf paw prints all over the scarf are awesome! House Hesson is a skilled knitter. The scarf is durable and has a tight, well put together weave. Commission them, they rock!

Nurr~~~ *fearful look*

I'm wary of opening up for general commissions; we've got quite a project list. Small things, we might consider, though. ^^

But I still appreciate the compliment!

That's really amazing! I've always wanted to crochet and knit like my great-grandma did, but it looks like I haven't inherited her skills <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

It looks so soft and flawless, and screams Elinox too.

Ohhh, amazing! *_* (and you guys should post this to plural_art!) I like the delicacy of the print, indeed it's like lace.

Moar!

We intend to take a bunch of close-ups of this so that people can see the detail in the lace. Didn't think of putting it directly in the scanner to solve our crappy-lighting problems, though, until after scanning the two scarves below...

And...what could it be? Have we finished the scarf Ges requested? Maybe...

Or maybe we really did! Folded over so you can see how the garter stitch creates different mini-stripes of adjacent colors on each side. The bottom half didn't scan so well, but the colors are pretty accurate (on our monitor, at least) on the top half.

Thetwins& suggested taking the rainbow scarf to the HK gather and trying to rope some Warriors to wear it. XD We're considering carting it around for a while and trying to get pictures of all kinds of different people wearing it, just for the lulz.
