Finished Object – Houndstooth Handwarmers

Several months ago, I set out to make a colorwork pattern for submission to a design call. I wanted to refresh myself on the technique, though, because it had been quite a while since I had done colorwork. So I turn to LoveCrafts and found the Houndstooth Handwarmers by Ellen Gill.

I had some mystery yarn in my stash box, and it managed to match the gauge, so I decided to use it. I’d say it’s size 2/ fingering weight yarn.

I used the two-handed method, contrast color (gray) in the left hand and main color in the right since I normally throw because I use a method in which I maneuver the left needle to do most of the work and doing everything with my left hand puts too much strain on my left wrist. Anyway, the two-hand method makes my floats super organized and nice on the back side.

Monsterverse Episode 1: Endangered Species

I know I just posted on Monday, but I just got this link and wanted to share right away. Ruby is in a cartoon!

A while back, I voiced the character Ruby (the orange one with the fire in that cover image) in the educational game series “Monsters vs Fractions”. I performed her in episodes 2 and 3 of the game, and then a few other things here and there. But this is my first time getting to see her speak in an actual, moving cartoon. I even got to sing in character for the theme song, which was a really fun experience.

It’s also very fun to have something to share of my voiceover work, because it’s usually radio commercials or presentations that I can’t share.

Finished Object – Flirt Skirt

I had some Lion Brand Mandala Yarn that I bought as an option for my Tunisian Tee test project that I decided to turn into a skirt. So I poked around on LoveCrafts and found the Flirt Skirt by Claire Jackson.

Turns out the colors matched my computer, and once I was into the body of the skirt it made a great shoulder warmer when I forgot my jacket at baseball practice.

Details:

Size: 36 inch waist, worked as written

Yarn: Lion Brand Mandala in Spirit, two balls alternated each row, 210 grams

This is a great “mindless” project once you get past the waistband and set up your markers for the increase rows. Definitely recommend this for a nice spring skirt. I have worn it several times already since I finished it.
