SpicyPeaSoup, in I found a video of someone using a fidget spinner and a pencil to spin hair into yarn.

Her other videos are...interesting, to say the least.

Ugh, I have an old fidget spinner, too, that a friend gave me years ago. I've been half-joking that I should just do this instead, since I have a longhaired cat that covers EVERYTHING no matter how much time you spend brushing her and cleaning surfaces. Just gonna make her a sweater out of her own hair and see how she likes it

HandsHurtLoL,

Okay, I have definitely seen people spin cat hair yarn, then knit something small for their cat.

I think it's a neat idea, but like, you can never come back from that, my dude. That's crossing the Rubicon.

Oh wow that's a stunner. Reminds me of paint swirls more than anything.

Of course I'll never in a million years get around to actually making it, but I can certainly admire it from afar.

Isn't it remarkable? I saw it before I read the details and I knew instantly it was Northern Lights in fiber form!

In case it's not clear, I posted this to a kbin "magazine" (which is like a subreddit) and this is part of the chatter over there. Here's the link. https://kbin.social/m/knitting/t/65876/ISSUE-23-Light-of-the-Valkyrie-Knitty-com-First-Fall-2023

I like that these things can bounce out to Mastodon, but I think it breaks the continuity of the conversation.

HandsHurtLoL,

I've made two torso pieces (plus sized garments) from free patterns at knitty.com, so really: God bless Knitty.com

Indigodragonfly,

@HandsHurtLoL @mem_somerville_kbin

My bad. I thought maybe the designers were worth the blessing too.

I love it! I don't like making cables but I can't deny the results are gorgeous.

Khalypso, in Handsome Chris Pullover

This is gorgeous!

Beautiful stitch definition!

Thank you, I'm not massively keen on the single stitch cabling center panel, I have been wondering if it would have been neater as a twisted knit stitch, but I'm certain that it'll neaten up after blocking

Cool! How long has it taken for you to knit this so far?

I just looked back at my photos, and it looks like I cast on around May 14th.
I'm just under halfway through the front now, so just under a month.

The cable repeats are intuitive after the first repeat of the central panel, so I can just sit and work without referring to the pattern

This is the back panel of the Handsome Chris Pullover designed by Caryn Shaffer "a replica of a sweater from the Knives Out movie, reverse engineered for funsies"
