Shedir, Plus a Little Bunny Love

I finished Shedir in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

I had noticed during the knitting that some of the dye was rubbing off on my fingers, so I gave it a good long soak and rinse to get the excess dye washed out (there wasn't a whole lot, in the end) and it is now dry and ready to be given to Daphne. I shall hopefully be seeing her on Friday.

In other news, I received a package yesterday from Rabbitch. Turns out we both work similarly crazy hours, so we've been chatting a good bit of late and I decided to buy a skein of her sock yarn in the "No Mean Feets" colorway.

Yes, it's a much tamer name than "Koala Twat" or "Electric Sheep Douche", and no, she has not indicated to me that it has a different, more perverse, known-only-to-her name. But she still would like me to reassure everyone that she is nothing but an unrepentant trollop, and I shant dispute that.

I decided that this yarn would go well in one of Charlene Schurch's two-color sock patterns with one of the skeins I have from Carol's Black Bunny Fibers. The perfectness of pairing Rabbitworks with Black Bunny yarn is not lost on me.

But first they're going to have to hang out together for a good while so that I can work on wedding knitting. It remains to be seen which will corrupt the other more. It's just a good thing that Dolores's tour won't be bringing her through this neck of the woods.

It's beautiful! I love the colour and the tweedy flecks.

The hat is lovely; Daphne will love it.

I am a big fan of your color combination. Perfect amount of contrast, and the colors will offset each other beautifully. I see great things once wedding knitting is done.

Gaw-jus hat, Deah! And I love the blue and green together!

Shedir is perfect and I think you deserve some nice, new yarn for the lovely gift you've created. Is Delores invited to the wedding by any chance? If so, I demand pictures from the reception!!!

Oooh, the bunny and rabbitch look great together. Gotta love those names. I used to have a raunchy version of 12 days of xmas, with 7 twats a twitchin and a quickie in the laundry the only ones I remember. Nice hat too!

Great hat. I am sure she will love it.

Are you planning on doing a slip stitch pattern or fairisle pattern for the socks?

Eikon said...

Where is that pattern from. It's definitely an "impressive gift" sort of hat. Lovely yarn too.

Liz said...

Lovely Shedir - I think I like the pattern more as I see others make it.

Christine said...

OH those yarns look great together! The bunny love, too funny!

That shedir is beautiful. I think your friend will really love it. You were right, it IS getting easier as the pattern goes along. Thanks for the encouragement!
