Customer FOs: August

Hello all - it's time for the August edition of the FO post! I, Kara, apologize for the long delay (after all, it's now October!), but your intrepid FO post writer has decided that going back to graduate school for a doctoral degree while working full time sounded like a mighty fine idea. Classes started a few weeks ago and I am JUST NOW figuring out how to manage my time so that I can do everything, including knitting (let's not discuss the serious case of cast-on fever I have right now. KNIT ALL THE THINGS!!!).

If you aren't familiar with FOs, they are Finished Objects. A finished object is any item knitted, crocheted, woven, felted, spun or otherwise transformed from Dyeabolical yarns or spinning 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).

So, let's get on with all the pretty, shall we?

First up from Katie, we have a Multnomah out of Strong Arm in Cerulean Coleptera. Katie said herself that this is a great pattern for variegated yarn and she is so right! (project page)

Rose-Marie used Bling Sparkly Sock in Be Mine for Vittorio. Is there a Dyeabolical color that doesn't look fabulous in this pattern? I don't think there is. What? You haven't knit one yet? Well get thee some lovely Alter Ego or Bling and get knitting! (project page)

Rachel herself used Worsted Superwash to knit a tiny Mochimochi Snowman. So cute!

Carrie used a 80/20 bfl/silk handspun in an unnamed colorway to knit this gorgeous Lazy Katy shawl. I just love how this turned out - these colors speak to me. (project page)

Hillary used BFL Hard Twist in Flower Shop Inferno to make a pair of Jaywalkers. Great socks! The BFL Hard Twist is a fantastic sock yarn. (project page)

Cindy knit this beautiful Celeano shawl out of Bling Sparkly Sock in Queen's Tea. I love the border on this!
 And a full shot so we can see the whole thing. (project page). Why yes, Cindy is wearing a second shawl from Dyeabolical. It is Lyrica Euterpe by Romi Hill knitted in the Ewe Knit colorway. Looks great, Cindy!

Courtney combined a skein of Alter Ego in Slither with the Bellatrix sock pattern to make a pair of perfectly evil socks. (project page

Moving on to handspun: 

Joelle spun fiber in Flower Shop Inferno to make this great aran weight yarn. (yarn page)

Kara did a little spindle spinning in August using fiber in the Sid Fishious colorway to make this two-ply yarn (yarn post).

And finally, the amazing Susan Anderson knit up a pair of mittens out of handspun in Themyscira. They look so warm and cozy! (blog post)

And that finishes up August's FOs. I'll be back soon with the FOs for September!
