A finished project!

Matt's knucks are at last complete. He likes them. He wore them to bed last night he likes them so much. Wanna see?

For those not in the know, "Thenhaus" is Matt's last name. He requested that the knucks say this, although "More Beer" was a close contender. I used cascade 220 for the glove part and black embroidery floss for the letters. I'm no embroidery expert, so I just did my best to make the letters look good. My pal Joe has requested a pair in the same color that say "TUNA MELT" on them. Joe actually has knuckle tattoos that say "HOLD FAST" so he is looking forward to having the option to mix it up a bit. I told him that I have a pile of unfinished things that have to come first, so he's being very patient.

Tonight I am going to finish Kate's fingerless gloves so that I can send her package off tomorrow. I am also going to work on Toni's socks. I'm up to the heel flap on the second one. If I could crank out two finished projects in one weekend I would feel really accomplished.

Okay, now for some eye candy.

Behold my Sprout. He said "dog" yesterday. While watching me pet the dog. I am so proud.
Okay. Back to the needles.

I can't decide who is more pimp, Matt rockin the knucks, or Josser sitting there with his "come hither" eyes.
