do you know if it costs extra to request Stripey Octokittens?
you'd have to ask them. the stripey ones they've done so far were striped because the yarn had a gradient, not because they were using different colors, so if you got one like that I'm guessing it wouldn't be extra. idk how much more difficult it would be to use multiple yarns.
fakedit: I asked them and they said it would be like $3 more with multiple yarns!
i just put a note in saying i want an orange one, and if they Happen to have something orange stripey that would be cool. if not, plain orange is fine and adorable.
Made another little one day project. A roll up pencil case.

number one, my octokitten arrived and it's the cutest wittle thing in the entire universe, yes it is.
number two, I'm starting a cape even though class starts in less than a week because I have no common sense
I've been inspired to make my own clothing but I dont have the space. I'll start attempting skirts and work my way up to more difficult patterns when I move into my own apartment and have space for cutting, ironing, and a sewing machine. I havent hand-sewn in ages, I'm keeping that shit to places where it won't show XD
i only need to do three more repeats. So. Close.

pattern picked was a fucking herbert niebling

Godspeed to that

JERSEY YARN I WAS THINKING OF JERSEY YARN
Recently finished a birthday present for a friend in not even three weeks (after having tendonitis for months and not being allowed to knit). I asked them their favourite colours and they said 'the bi flag', so I was happy to oblige!

(my wonderful buddy Oswald is doing a fabulous job of modelling in the third pic)
The yarn's all sparkly but still super soft, and I used double knitting for the snails at each end, to match with my friend's online username. Considering how long it's been since I could work on/finish a project, I'm pretty damn proud of myself.
Tried to make a hat. Failed. Made a dumber hat.
The stupid hat lives! I hate it with all my heart and am not happy with it, but the recipient loves it and can’t wait to wear it to bars, apparently.
Fucking love people who find out I take commissions and ask if I have a friends and family discount after knowing me for less than a day.
Yes. I do. It's exclusively for blood relatives and people I've shared a bed with.
I also have a "we play the same larp" discount, where I'm kind and don't add an extra $50-$100 on top of the materials and labor cost.
And honestly, if this jackass tries any harder to get the f&f prices, he's not getting the amtgard prices either.
I have a few small skeins of dyeable, lace weight, cotton yarn, and a black walnut tree full of hulls that are starting to drop. Any suggestions on something I could make with the resulting yarn if I dyed it all that way?
if you like, knit it into a ball or something and stuff it with fluff, it could make a very nice family-friendly rock for throwing at belligerent guests
on a more serious note, it'd make gorgeous coasters if you have a nice table, or if you're into reenactment or SCA you could use it for making really pretty crafts
I've thought of that. I'm tempted to make a shawl of some sort since I think there's enough there to make one. I'll have to dig them out of the stash and see how much exactly is there. Though I'm not sure how well cotton would take to that.
it would be a good summer shawl! very drapey, definitely not overly toasty—I'd recommend looking at some of the "beach wrap" type stuff, or summer evening wear. Depending on how you do it up, it could be decently warm, I made partner a shawl out of lace weight bamboo and it keeps her shoulders cozy but goes right back in the box once the temperature drops.
these parameters (laceweight, shawl or wrap, in cotton) have 360 options alone: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/se...ertype=cotton&sort=best&view=captioned_thumbs
