Madame Defarge Knits

"The fingers of the knitting women were vicious, with the experience that they could tear."

Finished Object Friday! 

One more Christmas Trillian (by Martina Behm), in Ancient Arts Fibre Crafts 100% Superwash BFL Wool 4 Ply Fingering, in the Russian Blue colorway. It was knitted on size 3 Chiaogoo needles. 

It matches my childhood cat (who recently died at the ripe age of 17), and hopefully the recipient likes it. It’s got that lovely garter stitch squish, and just a splash of understated panache.

Sneak peek of upcoming new design: Cabled Slouchy Beanies (matching mommy and toddler set)!!!

Step-by-step blog post and free patterns coming next week!

I used the pom poms made with my “Clover Pom Pom Maker" for these beanies!  For those who want to get a head start, I used Lion Brand's Heartland yarn in “Grand Canyon" (1 skein for toddler hat, about 1 1/4 skeins for adult hat)!
