Play Orthodox Vestments

The vestments are done! I'm glad because they've been a huge amount of work. You can see the listing here. I'm happy to be getting back to my neglected knitting now. :)

UPDATE: They've been reserved so the listing has been removed temporarily.

Ninja Needles

I used every single pin on only one half of the sticharion, trying to get the inside seams finished so there will be no rough edges. When I emptied the pin cushion I saw the barest bit of silver poking out and thought, "Well, I might as well get the needles out while I'm at it. There are probably one or two hiding."

Um, no. There were NINETEEN.

 On a recent jaunt we did some sightseeing and finally we can say we saw Rock City. ;)

...AND Ruby Falls...


Some recent creations: This tiny dress and hat were a custom order and went into the shop.

This sweater set was made for a fellow matushka who is having a baby girl next month.

I finally started work on the play vestments. The phelonion is done.

The epitrachelion and belt are done as well.

Today I hope to get the cuffs and sticharion done. Then it's going into the shop! First come, first serve. It should fit boys anywhere from age 4-5 to 9-10. (I'll do a dedicated post once it's completely finished.)
