Customer FOs: May

It's once again time to catch up on a summer full of Dyeabolical FOs! I have no idea where the last month has gone, but it seems like just yesterday I was on an airplane headed off for a week of vacation. Now here we are a full month (plus) later and I'm just 2 shorts weeks away from starting the next semester.

Let's get on with the FOs (finished objects), shall we? 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).

Lynne made a series of chemo caps for a friend of hers, including this Liffey hat using the BFL Hard Twist sock yarn. I just love this! (project page)

Amy knit up a great pair of Naga socks out of the old Ego base in Shulkie. I think these would also be great in any of the Dyeabolical colors or bases. (project page)

Jamie was productive in May and knit two pair of Mixed Wave Mitts using the rainbow mini hanks. There are so many different ways to arrange the colors in these - they'd be great for any of those mini hanks you've been collecting. (project page)

In another amazing use of mini hanks, Jess used her highlighter minis in a Daybreak shawl. This is one of those amazing projects that makes you wonder why you didn't think of doing that first. And how cute is that model?! Love it! (project page)

Melanie whipped up two pair of socks in May - first up the Skyp Rib Socks using Tenacious Tencel Sock in Bordello. These were knit as a gift for her mother in law and I can't think of a better present. (project page)

Then she knit a pair of Simple Skyp socks using Tenacious Tencel in Lucy. (project page)
Both pair are nice and cozy looking!

Joan also finished a pair of socks in May - these are the Seagrass socks made with a one of a kind hank of Super Ego. Another great pattern for variegated yarn. (project page)

I (Kara) also managed to finish up a pair of socks in May - these are Hermione's Everyday Socks using Strong Arm Skinny in Blood Orange. I loved this pattern and how it worked with variegated yarn - it's simple enough for travel/group knitting, but has enough of a pattern to entertain. Plus it's a Harry Potter inspired project, which just makes me happy. (project page)

Finishing off our socks for the month, Lill did a little bit of stranded sock knitting in May & made these gorgeous Florisse socks using Alter Ego in Katatomic. (project page)

Courtney whipped up a Traveling Woman shawl out of Tenacious Tencel Sock in Wicked City Woman. Gorgeous! (project page)

Shawna used her Superhero mini hanks to whip up a bunch of Dyeabolical hexipuffs for the Beekeeper's Quilt. (Click through to her project page to see many more pictures of the awesome puffs.)

Moving on to handspun, Tracey spun a BFL/Firestar blend in For the Love of Pants into this awesome yarn. Yarn like this makes me think ever so briefly about taking up spinning. (yarn page)

Courtney (of the previously mentioned Traveling Woman) also spun up a BFL/Firestar blend in May in the Ewe Knit Yarns color. I admit - I love the sparkle of the firestar in these yarns. (yarn page)

Kara spun up a couple of different Dyeabolical fibers in May. First up, she spun some rolags into this lovely pink yarn. (yarn page)

And then she spun some merino/firestar batts in Yo-de-lay-hee-hoo into this great gradient yarn. (yarn page/blog post)

And last, but certainly not least, Sarah spun up a portuguese merino in Paris, At Last into this beautiful yarn. Lovely! (blog post)

PHEW, y'all were busy in May. As always, if you'd like to see your Dyeabolical FO featured here, let me (Kara) know either by sending it to me on ravelry (karamichele) or sending me an email at starmonkeybrass(at)gmail(dot)com.
