FO: palindrome, a ballet slipper, and a dead rat
Here are a few things I've been working on:
The palindrome scarf is a birthday present for my father-n-law. I used Caron's Simply Soft, a brown color. It turned out really nice, and I think he'll like it!
I've finished one twinkletoes ballet slipper for my daughter, who wants to be a pink ballerina with purple shoes for halloween. I used Caron SS on this too.The straps could have been longer, but I think it'll do for now. I'll probably go back later and make them longer though.
And lastly, in the spirit of Halloween, I have made a
Death of Rats. Anyone familiar with Terry Pratchett books will know about this character, and what with "Reaper Man" being one of my favorite Discworld novels, I thought making this little guy would be fun. He's made with white red heart super saver, and his robe is black felt. His scythe is a bamboo skewer colored with brown marker, and some silver scrapbooking paper that I had. His robe is just stiff enough that it allows him to stand! I posed him by my halloween display, which explains the bloody candles if anyone is wondering.
Everything here was a stashbuster, so yay for stash busting!

Beautiful job on the scarf! I love the color, and the cabling is perfect. Sweet little ballet slipper, too. And that's the cutest rat I've ever seen.

I have to admit, your thread title had me wondering... LOL

Great job on everything! I love the rat, and my daughters would LOVE the ballet slippers!
