Photos Of Eris

Here she is.



The hole is fixed.



I taught myself how to seam differently.



It's almost invisible. It's the mattress stitch, instead of the regular sewing stitch I normally use. It looks so good.


And another finished object, although not a holiday gift.



My grandmother loves fun fur. I think there's little fun in this crap. But she wanted it, so she's getting it. No, I didn't kill a Muppet, it's a scarf.

Eris is lovely, mattress stitch is the way forward. I swear it's magic. I think the muppets should revolt against the manufacturing of fun fur - it must be giving them a bad name. But sometimes it's more important to a give a gift that the recipient will like, than to go with your own taste. If she's happy I guess that's the important part.

Oh and Eris, almost makes the fun fur look good, just by association.

Wow, looks awesome! I love the little cabling details. Isn't mattress stitch fun?

Don't feel bad about the Fun Fur. Everyone understands about gift knitting.
