Commission: hat and armsocks by StarTyrian Commission: hat and armsocks by StarTyrian
Knitting commission: merino hat and armsocks. It took me several tries to dye the gradient the way I wanted it. Perfectionism makes me slow, yes it does. :D

So question. When you're knitting, do you Throw, or do you go Continental? There's a series of questions I've got for you, and it all starts here. haha!

Love the gradient by the way. Didn't notice it at first, because of the background, but I do like it a lot :)

I'm a continental picker. Here's a great tutorial vid that shows you the method I use. (I tension my yarn a little differently than she does, but it's a very minor difference.) It's super fast and efficient, and I can knit for like six hours at a stretch without my hands getting tired. Give it a try!

And I'm always happy to answer knitting questions. I think fiber arts have a terrible stupid image in the media, and I want to spread the word on how fresh and creative they can be. ^_^

Haha. When you mentioned the video, I wondered if it was that one. If you look down to the second comment (most recent first), that's me (koabal85) lol. I hold my tension different as well.

*drool* I'm going to have to pool my money someday and commission a pair of socks.

The hat looks so plush and cozy.

:heart:!

BTW, this was a case of Extreme Knitting: when I was finished, I had less than a yard of yarn left over. It was a bit of a nailbiter toward the end there. :D

Oh boy xD. I'm imagining this slow-mo 'NOOOOO', dramatic light on the knitting needles and the slowly advancing end of the yarn... IT'S HARDCORE!
