One final test knit for the Matinée duo. I wanted to refine the construction technique and I think this is best, not to mention less hassle.
Matinée I ~ Opal is finished and here is her portfolio:
Matinée I ~ Opal ~ Finished
Matinée I ~ Opal ~ Finished 4
Matinée I ~ Opal ~ Finished 5
Matinée I ~ Opal ~ Finished 2
Matinée I ~ Opal ~ Finished 3
So Matinée I is the closed loop version and II is open with bands at each end to be lapped and pinned or buttoned or to be worn as a traditional scarf. Both versions are reversible, quick and easy to knit. Customizing is easy too. I hope to have the final patterns finished and available soon.
Cheers all! 🙂

New dressmaker form 🙂 Love it!
My Cthulhu Cozy has grown and is now dragon sized:
Sundara stash from 2008 club (Spring)
Sundara stash from 2009 club.
Cthulhu Cozy ~ I hope the Lord of evil likes green!
Nope. Not for Cthulhu… Maybe another slinky cozy?
Dragon Cozy ~ Matinée ~ Peridot test knit and fully adjustable for any length and most widths of house dragons. A lovely shade of peridot variegated will accent or harmonize with most scale tones. The silk content will help to prevent and talon snags. Eyelets are perfect for “wings in, wings out” freedom whatever the weather in your castle, keep, manor or hut. Show your dragon your love, keep him or her toasty in a KeiB Designs cozy!
I hope to get down to HomeSense today and pick up a decorative dress mannequin. I think it’ll help with the pictures of FO’s and after some diligent research, they seem to be very well priced. If all goes well, I should have a photo to post this evening of the finished dragon cozy aka: Matinée ~ Peridot.
ETA: mission accomplished. The form has been purchased though it’s been established that I am not permitted inside any “value” type shopping places without a chaperone! Pictures to come…
