Finished Object Fridays


It is done and I love it!
The edges turned out so wonderfully straight, and I really loved working in the two colours - I actually think this is what helped me to keep the edges straight!

As you may recall I had a mix up with the two greys when it came to warping the loom but I am really glad I stuck with the combination of the two greys and the purple.

Sure I don't have the houndstooth pattern I was originally going for but I think it actually looks great the way it ended up.

I used Drops Baby Merino for this project which I love. 
Firstly it is a Superwash yarn which makes things so much easier wash wise and the yarn feels amazing against the skin.

The next project I have to share with you are Kay's Surprise Socks:

She is a sucker for Batman anything so I thought I would create her a pair of socks with this in mind.

I like the way they turned out and appreciate the colour combination.

I always love that process from idea to actual finished object, especially when it turns out the way I want it to.

What have you managed to finish off this week?

I will be sharing this post with my Friday friends.

Well I am off to go and grab me some Black Friday Craftsy Courses :D
All classes are on offer for $19.99 or less - there is no time like the present to grab yourself some amazing courses!
I will share my incredible choices with you next week :)
