“Skully” is finished and I love him!
This is going to be fun to customize 🙂 Embroidery, beads, craft findings, even fabric paint. He’ll go from a subtle and well-behaved skeleton to a party-on-dude dia des los muertos sugarskull with just a visit to the craft store. The #UCG version will be black and in a blend with sheen; merino / tencel or a merino / silk. Embellishments will be jet or marcasite-type and very understated so that those of us who are “working for the Clampdown”, can still be “work appropriate” *cough* without compromising our personal style. It was a good week for Yarn Pr0n too – I know – I could easily open my own shop but I’ve been so-o-o good for the last couple years (for real!) and when I’ve ordered of late, I’ve used the purchase up for test knits or to finish languishing projects.
That’s my story. I’m sticking to it!
What arrived are: Sweet Paprika, “Messa Di Voce“, the last of three shipments of the sweater club I joined last year and some gorgeous Blue Sky Alpacas “Alpaca Silk” to make Dolce Knits “Victoria”. Can’t wait to get my needles into this lot.
