Customer FOs: March

Ah, March - seems like it was only days ago that you brought us an unexpected foot plus of snow and knitting time while we were all trapped in our homes watching it fall. It gave folks some time to finish languishing projects or whip up some quick knits. Either way, there were some great FOs in March.

For the uninitiated, FOs 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).

Sheila whipped up a giant Hitchhiker using a couple skeins of Strong Arm Skinny in Queens Tea - I like the little added touch of beads or charms at each point - such a great idea! (project page)

From Ann, a brighter than sunshine Vitamin D cardigan using a cotton/rayon blend. The sweater is even beter in person and would be great in any of the fingering weight yarns available in the shop. Rachel is also happy to dye-to-order if you need a sweaters quantity. (project page)

From Cindy, a great cowl knit out of Superwash Merino Worsted in Jeans Quilt. Lovely! 

Deborah paired Strong Arm Skinny in Carnival with a non-Dyeabolical purple yarn to make a beautiful Strand Of Pearls shawl. (project page)

Wendy brings us another lovely Wingspan using the BFL Hard Twist base in Caucus Race. (project page)

And with that, we close out another month of FOs. If you'd like to see your project featured in the future, just send me a message on ravelry (karamichele) or send me an email at starmonkeybrass(at)gmail(dot)com.
