Customer FOs and Handspun for January 2011

FOs are Finished Objects. A finished object is any item knitted, crocheted, woven, felted, spun or otherwise transformed from Dyeabolical yarns and fibers into another form (e.g. yarn knitted in to mittens, warp crocheted in to dishcloths, fiber in to a felted object, dyed top spun in to yarn). If you would like me to include your FO in an upcoming post, please email me  or message me through Ravelry. Thank you to my customers and friends for letting me share your FOs! 
MariannAn did a little stashbusting with these socks. She combined leftover balls of Dyeabolical, Lorna's Laces and Wollmeise to make these socks. Be sure to check out MariannAn's colorwork patterns. WOW.
Mamased  joined my sock yarn of the month club and knit this awesome shawl for her daughter in no time flat. Fantastic!
Nina (Cherry Sprinkle on Ravlery) knitted these fantastic gloves from a superwash merino/tencel for her swap partner for a recent Ravelry swap. Lucky partner!
Jessie from Stash Ehancement  (etsy store) spun this great striping 2-ply from BFL/Silk top in the Steampunk Themyscira colorway. "Steampunk" is the designation I use when I take a normally handpainted colorway and kettle dye it instead. The results are usually darker and  less predictable and have a "antiqued" look to them.
Carrie (Zinniz on Rav) spun this gorgeous lace-weight Falkland on her spindle. The color is a very deep dark extra-saturated Blood Orange (normally an orange/burgundy)

Cniotalai (on Ravelry) spun this beautiful 3-ply from a braid of superwash BFL. Look how even her spinning and plying is!
More Slither yarn! Ava used Slither in the Strong Arm Sock Yarn base to make these very cool Skew socks. Great job Ava and thanks for sharing the pictures! 

Deborah knitted these Evening Stockings For a Young Lady pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. She used the first dye lot (aka test skeins) of Mock Turtle in the Strong Arm Sock Yarn base.
How fun is this picture?  Lily from Ginger Haole knitted these awesome striped mitts by alternating one row of Kangaroo Dyer's yarn with one row of my Cotton Slub Sport (only 2 colors left, btw). Very cool idea!

Ellen spun this gorgeous yarn from some of the first roving I ever dyed and recently knitted this gorgeous shawl from it. 
Miss P knitted the socks above out of January's sock yarn in about 10 seconds flat and she knit the socks below out of the Derby Girl color. What's your secret to such fast knitting, Miss P?
That crazy Annie picked up this roving from me on Monday. 48 hours later she's spun all 8 oz in to this gorgeous 2-ply. She tells me she's going to knit it up in to a pattern she has wanted to knit for awhile. She knows it begins with a "k" and will start knitting as soon as she remembers what came after the "k".
Deborah used Dyeabolical felting wool to needle felt Steuben's new coat. Technically she did this in February, but this is so cute I could not wait. Could. Not. WAIT. You can find Dyeabolical felting fiber through Paste Crafts in Soulard, MO, True Blue Fiber Friends in Columbia, MO or Yellowbird Yarn Room in Ohio or you can do a special order through me.
