Here’s another commission knitting project, where I got fabulous professional images back to show for it. You might recall that I knitted the Master Charles hat out of O-wool Classic back in December for Tot Toppers to show as a model. My photos were OK, although those styrofoam head shots always seem a little creepy. But didn’t the Tot Toppers photographer do an excellent job…

I made another alien. They are so addictive. I bought a big sack of eyes for more. But I know I promised an end to the parade of finished knits, so how about some good ol’ yarn pr0n instead? It’s Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport in 909 Sheridan, that I dyed for an upcoming sweater project. Along with our other June ’09 releases, this new color…
