Working on another test knit- some fingerless gloves with a really awesome stitch pattern. I thought they would be way too big for me, but they are only going to be slightly too big! Hooray! They are so cute and cozy though, I can’t wait to finish them, then start another pair!
I wasn’t sure about the color initially- I didn’t know what color to choose for the recipient, and I am not really all that fond of blue, but this seemed like it would work out nicely… I’m glad I went with it- I really love it! I’ll definitely buy more of this color way…
Well, once I decide I can buy yarn again XD My stash is out of control, and really, I don’t need to buy more yarn. No buying yarn! Don’t do it, Jessica, just don’t… Unless it’s on sale, or being discontinued, just don’t buy the yarn for at least two months. I feel like two months is doable~ I guess we’ll see!
Oooh, long time, no post. It’s been a busy few weeks leading up to the holidays!
I knitted this 198 Yards of Heaven as a gift for a friend. I originally was going to use the yarn for fingerless mitts, but had too many screw ups, and just ended up going with this pattern. While the FO turned out just fine for a gift, I’m definitely not going to go with 198 Yards again- I did like how fast it went, but I really didn’t enjoy knitting it, and felt like the pattern was poorly laid out and explained.
Anyway, I used Madelinetosh Vintage in Duchess and Venetian, both beautiful colors! Not totally in love with Vintage, it doesn’t quite have the same softness that Tosh DK does, but it’s still really great yarn.
I love this pattern so much! It’s so easy to modify to be exactly what you want, and very forgiving if you happen to make mistakes. Though I always forget how much I loath knitting 400 stitch rows, ha. I’m happy it’s done :)
Now, on to holiday gift knitting! How many pairs of fingerless gloves can I make? Let’s find out!
I wanted something simple to show of the colors of the yarn, but with a little bit of detail, and I feel like this pattern was an excellent choice!
My latest FO, Rooty using Malabrigo Worsted ♥ This was such a fun knit, and pretty quick, too! I love the split at the back form the brim, it gives room for all of my hair, or room for a ponytail to stick out. I’ll definitely be making more of these in the future!
I also had way too much fun making the pom pom XD I love pom poms, so fun!
