Lucky Wanderer Slipper Boots Ta Da!

luckywandererboots04dA lovely order for Christmas.🙂 The customer ordered these for his wife, & left me to decide colours. No pressure…. ALL THE PRESSURE!  So I investigated her Pinterest account & discovered she was into stained glass.  I had worked with this beautiful colourway for the Huntress Cowl Vests – so I knew it would look amazing as boots.

Stats:

  • Pattern: Lucky Wanderer Boots by Drops {free pattern!}
  • Yarn: Loops & Threads Charisma in Northern Lights, Black, & Phentex WW in black
  • Hook: 8.00mm & 4.50mm {used to seam rather than mattress stitch}
  • Other: yarn needle, Doodle-Loom by Bucilla for pompoms, & E-6000 glue

No pattern adjustments beyond seaming by slipstitching together with the 4.5mm hook rather than sew them together.  The size is 11 – so they look big on me as I am size 8. They normally wouldn’t be baggy like that. :)  I glued along the tie yarn inside the pompoms to make them more secure.  I hope that the pompoms wear well. With all pompoms it’s touch and go.  But the ties are removable for washing – so that should help a great deal.  Washing pompoms almost always leads to disaster.

Owl mittens – The Green Dragonfly

 

I made a friend a pair of these adorable owl fingerless mitts a few years ago.  Recently a colleague of hers saw them & wanted a pair.  So now I’m working them up again. It reminded me of how cute they are!  I’ll be making myself anther pair & possibly a pair for a Giveaway &/or for the shop!  The Giveaway will happen when I reach 1500 Likes on Facebook – so get over there and invite your friends. Help me reach that goal faster!😀

Catch up on what I’m working on on Facebook & Instagram!❤

Luna Hood!

Luna from My Little Pony hood!!

unicorn-hood-luna-version-01c

This was a long project, actually takes quite a while & a lot of yarn to make.

Unicorn Hood Luna version 01d

Unicorn Hood Luna version 01g

I love the horn though – looks awesome in metallic purple yarn.

Unicorn Hood Luna version 01b

Unicorn Hood Luna version 01f

Made for a customer, I hope she loves it.  The pattern was well written & clear.  The hood is in HDC, so it takes quite a while. When I make it again I think I’ll sub in DC and decrease the number of rows.

Unicorn Hood Luna version 01e

Stats:

  • Pattern: Order of the Unicorn by CrochetVerse
  • Yarn: Purple by Red Heart Comfort, Metallic Dark Purple by Patons Metallic, boucle grey/blue by unknown & vintage
  • Hook: 3.50mm & 4.oomm, yarn needle, & stitch markers
  • Heart Pompom Maker
