Knitting down the stash
Still making inroads on the huge basket of unfinished projects . . . three sweaters wrapped up this weekend. One is still drying--its handspun wool/Tencel blend really holds on to moisture--but I'm looking forward to trying it on not-Viviana the sad Mina soon. (By the way, I'm thinking her name may be Kore. Yes, I have a Corinna, a Kit, a Claudine, a Kidon, and a Kanbei, not to mention an Okaru, but what can I say? I love me some velar plosives.)

The SD version of Flutters was ready to photograph when the sweet spot of daylight reached my living room today. BTW, these are Makoeyes that Okaru is wearing--when I received the order, I wasn't hugely impressed with them (seeing as how my urethane-eye standard is Mystics/EDs/Gumdrops), but they look much better in a doll than they do on their own. The color hovers somewhere between gray and purple, and I really like it with her darkish 1st-gen pureskin resin. Now, if I could just remember which style/color number this pair happened to be . . .

And yeah, okay, the flash fired on me this time, but you get the idea:

Shop is here, don't feel obligated, yadda yadda--I just enjoy posting pictures of sweaters. http://squirrelmoonknits.Etsy.com

The grey sweater looks fabulous with her eyes. So happy with the MSD size. Thank you tons! The boy sweater is super fantastic too. Love the way you worked up the colors in the sleeves. Thought of you today while viewing some fabric options.

That colorway (the yarn is Plymouth Boku, which I adore) was SO easy to work with--the color changes were really clear and regular, so making the sleeves match was a snap. I do like it when a self-striping yarn cooperates that way!

The teeny butterfly buttons are so cute on "Flutters"!

Both your models are adorable, particularly your Syo! <3

Poor Hibiki doesn't get nearly enough airtime . . . he just hangs out being all easygoing and Syo-ish, not demanding any attention. I thought it was high time that he had some pictures taken! I bought him from Buff a couple of years ago--I'm thinking she said the faceup was done by CherryStreet~Sera, back in the day.

Aren't those buttons awesome? I wish the seller had had more of them, but that's the thing with old buttons--when they're gone, they're gone. I have three left, have to figure out what to do with them.
