For Christmas last year, I made my friend, Lyra, a pair of fingerless gloves with some white mage detailing on them – she loves to play a white mage in Final Fantasy XIV, and has saved my blundering lancer many a time.
However, I made them too small! She’s taller than I am and I didn’t take this into account. So, a few months later, I made a replacement pair.
I felt bad that it had taken me so long to rectify my error, so I decided to… make poor Lyra wait even longer while I knitted her a white mage hooded cowl, as well.
All that’s left for me to do now is mail these off to her, and she’ll finally be able to dress like the white mage she plays. It was fun to make some non-hat, non-plushie video game things!
I hope everyone’s been having a good first month of 2018. I’ve been working quite a lot, and I’m happy to announce two new patterns up on Ravelry! The first is $5 + tax, and it’s the Tetris Lap Blanket (For the Gamer in Your Life) that Silver and I worked on for over two years!
That’s right, the Prince of All Cosmos is finally finished!
And he’s already off to his new home in Virginia! Hopefully he’ll have a safe journey, and not roll up too many other packages on his way there… 😉 His Ravelry project page is here, for those of you curious for more details and an extra picture.
Making so many plushies in such a short timespan has left me a bit drained! I’ve been trying to relax by learning about Tunisian crochet. I’m making a bunch of squares showcasing the different stitches, and I’m planning to knit them together to make a blanket for my couch. I’d love to order the interchangeable crochet hook kit from Denise Interchangeable Needles but I can’t really spend superfluous money right now. Oh well, maybe my parents will get it for me as a birthday present eventually? 🙂
I haven’t forgotten my commission work. On Monday I finished up all the knitting for the Prince of All Cosmos plushie I’ve been working on for two weeks. All he needs now is a face! I need to get to the craft store and buy myself some felt so I can ship this guy out. He’s a whopping 22 inches tall, from the top of his antenna to the bottom of his feet.
I will post another picture when he finally gets his face. Then, he’ll look perfect. (Or so I hope!)
