Projects gallore - Picture Heavy

Ive been working on various projects for friends, and myself, as well as getting some belated christmas gifts finished.

We have Doug (my other half) with his one of two mittens that I finally finished.

Next up was just an experiment with 19mm (US 35) needles. It turned out better than I had anticipated. There is a glow in the dark yarn in there as well.

And this is what it looks like with the lights off, glowing under its own power.

This is an outfit that I made out of a dress and a skirt from our local thrift store Value Village. I turned the top half of the dress into a shirt, and the rest into the skirt as you see on the bottom half.

These pants were made for a friend of mine and fellow LARPer out of an old bedsheet again at value village. I might make myself a pair cause they are relatively quick, and they seem very comfortable.

I hope you enjoyed this wonderful little update. Keep checking for more. I might not post often, but I post big when I do.
