I did this one with Sanguine Gryphon Bugga and 2.5mm circs. The circulars were a tiny bit awkward at times...
but they worked. This Elijah is a present for an unborn baby, and the yarn, I thought, was a nice neutral gold/green color. Remember this pic? Well, the skein I got, knitted up, was a bit less gold, and a bit more "army camo". Since it's no longer quite as "gender neutral" I decided to add an optional pink scarf, with a bit of hand-dyed merino scraps ;) I'm sure a girl will like him just fine, but you know... tiny knitted accessories... I just needed an excuse.
I just love his little round feet :D
Here is a little handspun. I entered the 'competition' on the Ewe Give Me the Knits rav group, and the theme for January was "Australia". Tried to make rusty orange/green/blue. Byron even helped me dye it, which he thought was fun. But I found that I disliked the orange and blue plied together. Can't imagine what I'll knit it into. One for the stash-heap. lol.
February's spin challenge is "Valentine's Day". I dyed last night and started spinning today while the kids were having a nap. It is very pink!
