Just for Phiir
Okay, for those of you who are curious this is Epiaa just before the Wrath of the Lich King release. She is in the Argent Dawn leggings and carrying the crystal shield with the coil fang mace. This was my Christmas gift from my husband and I just adore having her on my desk.
These are scarves knitted for a friend's daughters. The black one is made with a 100% wool yarn and a carry along yarn by Trendsetters in gold, gray, and white. The Soft pastel colored one is made from a 55% wool 45% silk yarn custom dyed, the stitch used is a moss stitch.
Same friend wanted some new soft sweaters for her grandsons and a lovely (Pink Lemonade is the yarns color)hooded sweater for her soon to be born granddaughter. the final piece for her family is the shawl in forest colors for her daughter. It is big enough to wrap herself and the new baby in as she runs around in the cold.
Now, on to the doggie sweaters. These are just a few of the sweaters I knitted up this winter. The first is for my brother's dog (Jenny) who is a daschound and I had a great deal of fun making it for her. The second is Heya's sweater in black angora and a faux fur trim with sparkles I made the same one is a smaller size for a friend's dog named Baby Girl. The striped one is in Noro Kureyon and was made for Tommy (a black mini schnauzer)who comes to visit with the propane delivery guy.
This final picture is a prayer shawl made for a friend's Mother. It is very soft and warm. This was made from Caron Soft Touch and the fringe is in the same yarn with two similar colors mixed into the fringe for some depth.
Also made but not pictured are:
Scarf for my darling daughter in the same lovely 45% silk 55% wool as the pastel scarf above but in more of a coral and bright green colors.
Socks, Purple pair for Terry J. Lynn (the author who is on my friends list) Socks, 100% alpaca in sandalwood for a friend in New Mexico, Socks, in green and gray not claimed yet, socks in Noro Kureyon sock yarn with matching baby booties (for my daughter and grand daughter) Baby sweater for Princess Sofie, Baby sweater set with hat and socks for Princess Sofie.
Meanwhile, not only am I busy with the knitting and with the Guild on Moon Guard, but I am still reading a book a day (right now a lot of re reads), enjoying my husband's company and relaxing a little. I hope all of you had a wonderful New year.
