I LOVED this pattern my latest completed commission, and another pair with a new pattern are also on the way to another customer.
Want a pair of your own design? Now available as a fully customisable order on Etsy! Check it out! You can also order your own custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail.
If you're interested in learning how to make something like this yourself I'm building up a Make-Your-Own Scaly Knitting Guide which I will keep adding to as I find out what's needed, so please ask any questions and give feedback about what to include! Keep in mind though I intend to sell a glove pattern, so I won't post that up - mostly information on materials, techniques and such for people to develop their own ideas ^_^
Gloves go for £15-£24 (~$25-$40) +p&p a pair, depending on the request
This was my first pair of fully scaled gauntlets, and extra long at 12 inches instead of the usual 6 or 9! The palm is left scale free for holding stuff. but the rest is completely scaled, so it takes around twice as many scales to make this as it does to make a standard pair of long gloves - nearly 800! It was great fun to make and I love the scaly feel so when I eventually get round to deciding on what my perfect pair will look like I'm going to be making myself some all-round gloves as well
Want a pair of your own design? Custom scale orders can be taken through CraftyMutt's Etsy through purchasing one of the standard custom orders or sending a message about something even more special like this pair! You can alternatively order your own custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail Page where you can find the information I need to make your own unique personally designed gauntlets, and where to send orders
If you'd rather try to learn how to make something like this check out the Scale Mail Tutorial Page and any feedback you can give to improve it is massively appreciated ^_^
This is my first serious try on a tablet weaving (card weaving) pattern. The pattern is a variation on the well known ramshorn pattern. The belt is about 75cm long and 2cm wide. It is woven with DCM cotton yarn.
The trio is complete! And to the sound of Princes of the Universe, no less. (Thanks computer!)
They're not perfect but they're done. There were a few stupid mistakes I made with each of them but it's a learning exercise. Not sure who to make next but I'll be taking a quick break to complete a commission. Maybe when I'm done I'll have another crack at the A-Team!
A pysanka (Ukrainian: писанка, plural: pysanky) is a Ukrainian Easter egg, decorated using a wax-resist (batik) method. The word comes from the verb pysaty, "to write", as the designs are not painted on, but written with beeswax.
Did this one right after the movie came out but I could never get a good photo of it. I think I have close to a hundred shots of this thing.
It was my first attempt at doing a suncatcher, just the arrowhead by itself, without the square frame. And I wanted the center star to not have glass at all. Unfortunately, that left 2 short straight lines creating a fold point across the middle and it wanted to fall apart. So I ended up adding the swirling blue glass around it to give it strength. The center is still empty though.
