fleece artist

Yet another hat-in-progress. I love the yarn (Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3 ply) but for some reason the knitting seems like it is taking absolute ages. Maybe I’ve just become accustomed to having so much free time in a day that I’ve been cranking out hats like no tomorrow, so when I go a few days on the same project it seems like I’ve been working on it forever.

Commission I got from official MLP comic artist Tony Fleecs this weekend at BABScon! He did an amazing job, I’m probably going to find a way to frame it and hang it on my wall. Tony is my favorite of the MLP comic artists, I’ve wanted to commission him for a while now.

On a somewhat related note, updates should resume this week. I have a few things to take care of like unpacking and taxes and stuff, but the plan this week (After getting inspired by all the awesome artists at the con) is to resume updates, hopefully on a regular schedule. I was hoping to start working on it today, but I got a bad case of Con Crud and I slept like a rock and I’ve been coughing all day.

So anyway, I have some more info and stuff coming soon, plus updates. Look forward to more from me this week!

Violet Waffles hat. I knit this on-and-off over four days, and it felt like forever considering the speed at which I’ve been banging out hats lately. The actual knitting took about as long as an average hat, but I’ve spent a lot of my recent art/craft time with my sewing machine.

Yarn is Fleece Artist Woolie Silk 3ply. I love FA; not only do they produce wonderful yarns, but their dyeworks is just a few hours from here so I consider them local. The subtle colour depth in their semi-solid colours doesn’t come across well in photos, but it shines. I’ve used a lot of FA yarns – Merino 2/6, Sea Wool, Suri Blue, Kidazzle, Saldanha Two, Trail Socks – and I’ve never been disappointed.
