I got this kit for Hello Yarn's Mini Skull Tote from calico13 for the Magic Yarn Ball Swap, and now am finally posting my FO pix.

The main yarn is Lamb's Pride Worsted. The skulls are Cascade 220 (black) and Cascade Quatro (teal). I used US 10 1/2 circs, and knit flat according to the pattern. I realize now that I forgot to take the color stranding into account with my tension and ended up with a little puckering, but it all blocked smoothly in the end, and has gotten even better with use over the past few days.


Before felting, with Orbit gum for size.


After felting, holding a Wheat Thins box.


Teal skulls before and after felting.

A few more photos can be found on this Flickr photoset. Hope ye like it, mateys!

Danke, danke alles!

Unfortunately, the Wheat Thins have become stale. However, they were neither the parmesan basil flavor nor the sundried tomato & basil flavor, so I'm not as sad as I could be. Bird food now, perhaps.

But definitely get your knit on with this bag! It's not difficult at all, and doesn't take very long either.

Pax!

Great job, love the colors.  You can refresh your wheat thins by baking them in a 350 dgree oven for a few minutes.  Works on cereal, too.

I'm so going to do that when I get home ... if I remember to take them with me! (They've been sitting on my desk at work for the longest time.)
