So Ig and I were discussing our next business venture.

And we need your help, you ladies of sewing.

We need someone to create a prototype for us, of a stuffed,
plush klu klux klansman. Any takers?

Alas, Yorick...

I finally started those booties in Berrocco Suede.  It's an interesting yarn.  There is absolutely no elasticity to the strand itself, and only a little bit of "give" to the knit fabric.  But wow, it looks gorgeous when it's knitted up!  I wish it felt as soft as it looked.  It's a good choice for booties, since it seems pretty durable, and it would make a really nice bag, but probably not so great for a sweater.

Girty - Go for it!  I planned on making yorick at one point, but when I tried felting the test swatch it wouldn't felt.  Apparently some white yarns won't felt because of the bleaching process.  So I gave up on the idea instead of just asking the Nice Yarn Lady for a recommendation.

Thanks for the tip! I forgot about that with white wool being hard to felt. I will consult the yarn nazis for advice.

YOU MUST post pictures of those booties when you're done. I'm looking forward to seeing it completed!

Incidently, I'm making a Irish Hiking Scarf for my dad for xmas with a matching hat. (I have a complementary pattern I can adjust with these patterns)

After that, Probably fleeb's hat.

Then... maybe Yorick

Make your own pattern row counter.  What a clever idea!

I'm going to make several of those for Xmas! What an outstanding idea!!! I've made beaded row markers for friends for gifts, but that is THE SHIT!!! What a simplebut perfect idea!

 I guess for larger needles you'd use larger jump rings. Man, that is so cool. I think I have the materials to make that for a project I'm working on right now.

You're welcome :) 

I need to make a bunch of those for myself.  I've got 4 WIP's and I'm not very good at counting rows if it's not stockinette.

Go look at the pics.  They're blurry but worksafe.  No asses were exposed in the making of these photos.
