"Spidey" place mats for my favorite two goblins

Finished these today :) Super easy.  I couldn't find black velvet tubing so I used Bernat "Blanket" yarn that feels like velour for the legs.  It's flip and sew quilt as you go.  Bought the pattern from Michelle's Quilts N Things in Maryland a couple of years ago.  Michelle's is my all time favorite quilt shop.  These go in the mail on Monday :)

Nashville Preds Outfit for American Girl Doll

For my sister in law's doll.  The skirt was a Simplicity Pattern for dolls. The sweater is modified from a pattern by "Donna's Delights".  The emblem I bought on Etsy. The hat is me just winging it.  The yarn is Cascade 220.  I found blue and yellow shoes at They have a really good selection of doll shoes.  I can't look at these colors anymore. Go Bruins!!

Heavy Duty Boot Sock

Pattern is called Tuffy.  It is a free boot sock pattern available on Ravelry by Kate Atherly using Briggs & Little Canadien Sock yarn.    The yarn is an Aran weight.  Great when you're knitting a pair of socks for Sasquatch.  :)  

I found the yarn at Halcyon in Bath, Maine.  The socks look as if it will take a beating.  I finished this pair while on vacation in Bar Harbor and Booth Bay, Maine.  I heavily modified the pattern. What parts I didn't understand, I just ignored and did the way I normally make a sock.  Definitely making more of these.  Already have the yarn in Navy blue and green.
