    @Re Allyssa I used Stitchboard.com, but I was also doing a black and white photo, so...
    It worked well for me, but idk

    The stitchboard thing is so cool. I like being able to choose the number of stitches across. It's easier for me to figure out than inches xD I still want to edit it a bit when it's done, but this does save me a lot of work. xD

    So! My bosses / coworkers gave me a little travel pillow from the university store as a Christmas gift! I was already planning on making one of them a thing, because she's obsessed with with the college's mascot (it's a unicorn). I didn't know what to make the other two (or maybe four?), but my mom gave me a pretty good idea.

    So the unicorn lady gets the unicorn, with the university's name down the sides, and her name at the bottom. Everyone else is gonna get the dog with Tartans on the top, school's name, and their name on the bottom. When I'm done, I'm gonna use a glue gun on the back so that they can work as bookmarks. I still need to figure out exactly how the name placement is gonna go, but that'll be easier to do on paper. But I'm excited with how these came out so far. :) (The legs on the unicorn are kinda sad but I had to work with the only image I had and it wasn't great quality xD)

    So today I did my first arm knitting experiment!

    I was laughing out loud basically the entire time. It is a riot, and a particularly fantastically whole-upper-body sensory experience, which makes my sperg brain very happy. And the result is shockingly warm, despite the fact that it is a super open knit.

    Well...trad fair isle wins out over the float-weaving thing. But I think this pattern is probably busier than I want it to be in fair isle, so I'm scrapping it and looking for something else. If anyone has good colourwork charts, could you post them? I'm looking for a two-colour pattern which is either wide (50+ stitches) or has lateral repeats, and isn't toooo traditional-looking (i.e. I'm not really feeling the diamond/snowflake thing). Something nature-y (vines, branches) would be cool too. I'm not finding much at the moment.

    (I would've posted this sooner but I got distracted making a hat that turned out Too Ugly To Live. Pattern's great, though; it was the colours I couldn't handle.)

    So apparently switching up my brand of crochet hook made a world of difference. I've been basically obsessed with crocheting lace lately.

    Can you tell I love that color of green?

    I need to finish the second fingerless glove, but there are so many people I still need to gift to that I've been putting off finishing it so I don't have to deciiiiide.

    The little bracelet/cuff at the bottom I've been working on to go with @Allenna s very late Christmas card. Sorry dear, I'm v. slow ;_;

    No idea what to do with the rest of them, though! Any suggestions?

    I don't know what it is about these silly robots and this silly hobby, but I've barely been able to put this down for the last month and I think my hands are about to fall off. Even knowing I'm losing a ton of detail, I ADORE this palette, and I'm really pleased with how it's coming out. It's MUCH more vibrant irl, but I'm in love with the gradient even dulled down like my lighting did to it here.

    @Re Allyssa Would it be okay with you if I used the scotty-dog chart at some point in the future? It turned out really nicely and I just graduated from that place. (Not feeling that school-spirit-y now but maybe later I will...)

    I do not fiber art outside of school much at present because what are spoons but I will post the lovely shawl my girlfriend is making for me when I receive it because she's knitting beaded lace and I am impressed and mildly concerned

    finished all the Christmas projects save one, which i spent several hours charting today. it is a project for my moirail, based on something one of her favourite profs said to her once upon a time.

    tiny version, used to make pattern pixel for pixel:
    talent.gif

    it's 140x115 stitches, which is about 10"x8". i'm doing it on light blue Aida cloth. i have about half the colours i need, so going to get the rest of them tomorrow. probably going to take me most of the month, i'd guess.

    EDIT: @jacktrash did you get a present today i must know
