Customer FOs: April

Spring finally sprung and it's finally time to take a look at those April FOs. Yet again we have a great selection of amazing FOs made out of Dyeabolical yarn. You guys really make it hard for a girl to keep her WIP (works in progress) pile down to a reasonable number. I always want to cast on for ALL THE THINGS when I'm writing these posts.

You don't want to hear about that, though. You want to see some FOs, or 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).

Anne finished a couple cute little baby items using the cotton warp yarn - these adorable little slippers (project page)

....and this super cute baby sweater. There is just something adorable about baby knits, isn't there? (project page)

I (Kara) finished a re-knit of my Folded sweater using Silkerino - a (discontinued) silk/merino blend. While this yarn is no longer available, the Silky Sock available exclusively at Ewe Knits would be a fantastic substitution. If you aren't in St. Louis, any of the fingering weight yarns would also work and I think Tenacious Tencel would make a great sweater yarn. (project page)

I also finished a pair of Spatterdash Mitts out of Alter Ego in Katatomic. These were so much fun to make and I loved picking out the buttons to go with the Katatomic colorway. I can't say enough about how fun these are in a variegated yarn. (blog post)

From Shannon, a wonderful pair of socks using Super Ego in Golden Afternoon. Sometimes stockinette is perfect to let the colors shine through. (project page)

Emmy Lou also finished a pair of socks in April - these are the Don't Cage Me In Socks out of BFL Hard Twist in the Chocolate Wine & Cherries colorway. Fantastic! (project page)

Rachel was a bit Dyeabolical herself in April, using her BFL Hard Twist in Katatomic and Tenacious Tencel in Wicked City Woman to knit up a Piper's Journey shawl. So. Gorgeous. (project page)

Krystal brings us a little bling in her awesome Hitchhiker, knit out of the Bling Sparkly Sock in Davy Jones Locker. (project page)

Bibliogrrl used her skills with a crochet hook and the Highlighter Orange yarn in Alter Ego paired with a gray yarn to make a fun kerchief. 

Kara the spinner (not me) has some great projects involving handspun this month. First up, she spun this BFL fiber in Malliot Jaune (which was part of the Variations on a Pink fiber club) into a fingering-sport weight yarn...

which she then knit into a lovely Zuzu's Petals shawl/cowl. (project page)

She also spun up 4oz of polwarth/silk fiber into an amazing bulky yarn....

which she then turned into this kid-sized cowl. Looks fabulous! (project page)

Like I said, another amazing month of Dyeabolical FOs.
