Crimson Hair Across Your Face


My error in aiming the camera looks artsy, no?

I know that I've got a bad habit of starting a new project every week, but I'm here to say that some of them will be finished. In this case, sooner rather than later--I started these fingerless gloves last weekend, and finished them this morning. I really like the way they turned out, and I think that the person I made them for will also like them. Quick, easy, pretty, warm--what's not to like? I wasn't sure quite how much mileage I'd get out of the yarn, so I used the "Small/Medium" size and where there were length options (such as with the cuff ribbing), I went with the shorter length. The final weight of these is about 40 grams, or 80% of the hank, so I could have been less conservative, but I don't think that they seem skimpy. My fingers are probably longer than the recipient, and fully stretched out above.

Time to move onto more holiday knitting--I think that I'll probably knit at least one more pair of these, but maybe I'll do something else in between. Like maybe more of what's felting in my washing machine right now . . . and that I should go and check on . .

Hope that everyone had a good Thanksgiving, and be careful out there if you're shopping! My shopping plans for today are minimal, maybe a trip to Renaissance Yarns and a delicious coffee later. Yummmm, coffee!

Those came out great I am sure the recipient will love them. I am not doing mu holiday knitting this year I think next year I will start earlier.

They are beautiful. I want to knit some, but I lack the yarn, know-how, and patience. Whatever will I do?

I am sorry that you did not use my fuzzy quote. Maybe when you knit mohair something.
