Art Project Meme complete!
Okay, I've made my five art/craft/widgets from this meme, and the out-of-town ones are in the mail.
  • merastra gets a tweaked picture. There's something either silly or presumptive about sending a Photoshop tweak to a Photoshop wizard far more impressive than I, but I'm still fond of it as a Thing for a Creator.
  • mijven gets Autumn Socks, since she said "Laura makes SOCKS!" with such enthusiasm, and I even had some Autumn Yarn that had screamed out her name when I saw it. The pattern is Pomatomus, which remcat pointed me at; it's one of the few lace or texture patterns that can withstand a multicolor yarn without getting lost.
  • rifmeister gets Pirate Handkerchiefs, which were something of an excercise in techniques Not Working Right. The first attempt, using resist and black dye, ended up with some interesting but not at all right khaki handkercheifs with darker khaki skulls. The second attempt, using resist and fabric paint, was at least black, but uneven for various reasons. Well, there's probably a reason real pirates don't have pocket handkerchiefs; maybe this is it.
  • twe gets an Eyoof toy, inspired by ilhander's run.
  • ironrat gets a Cowboy Cardinal, because, well, it totally made sense when I thought of it. Just imagine him, riding the range, roping up sinners and bringing them to grace!


The Handkerchief, Eyoof, and Cowboy Cardinal projects all have more pictures and commentary about the construction, if you follow the thumbnail links above and poke around.

The pomatomus socks came out great!

I made another pair for Christmas presents; I really love the pattern!

It's a pretty pattern.

Now I have been perusing your sock pictures. This pair is quite pretty.

I'm vastly impressed with the combination. :) When I am pope, all albs will be modified to allow riding! Thank you. :)
