Back-track..

Finally got around to editing some of the pics from xmas gifts..

I find that I'm using Ravelry more often than I'm posting here... [pssst, that means you should add me as a friend there!]

I'll post a huge bunch of pics here anyway then.. the following is pretty much anything I've been working on that I haven't posted about here yet. To limit the number of pics on this entry, I'll only post one pic per item, but definitely check out my flickr account for the rest of the images!

Attempting some sort of order.. let's see, last pic post was for the pithyhat, so:

Major Underbitesnaggletooth


Pattern: Felted Skull, from LionBrand
Yarn: Off-white wool, from roommate
Hook: 10 N/P
Modifications: I think my hook may have been slightly smaller than what was called for.
Comments: First real attempt at felting.. took the pictures before giving him a shave; he was very fuzzy! My skull is also the featured pic for the pattern on ravelry.

H2O Hat

and....
just for fun:

the unknown green looks like yarn that I used as a teen. I love it and wish i could find it in the stores.
