happy belated valentine's day, and happy lundi gras!
i was so bad at blogging last week so i'm including lots of pictures as an amends. let's start with my progress on mr. santa.
the sweater is stitched using gumnut "tulips" in kalem, with diagonal knitting for the sleeves. i like how textured it looks, like a real cable-knit sweater!
i originally thought beads for the "OU" and then once i started it i completely had a change of heart.
so i pulled out the sparkly neon rays and love it so much more!
also tested out a mustache/beard option in angora.
finishing up his hat with fuzzy stuff, and then onto the background. his beard is so white-white against the cream of the sweater, so i'm having to wrap my mind around that. but i think he's cute. what do you think?
here's a glance at our weekend!
