Here are the second pair of Tangle’s Fingerless Cable mittens that I’ve knit this year.
The lucky recipient, whose birthday was in April – whoops! – only just received them. Project specifics: free Tangle pattern found here. Misti Alpaca’s 100% Baby Alpaca, Chunky 2 ply in black, which was lovely to knit with but holy cow does alpaca ever run when you lose a stitch! I also used less than a skein to knit the pair and have enough left over for something very small.
Here are the second pair of Fetching gloves that I’ve knit lately.
Here are the specifics: Mission Falls 1824 100% merino superwash in the Wildflower 662 colour. I had a very accomodating model! Iain calls these the "arm ones" and was breathing down my neck to wear them when I was binding off the second one.
These are going to a very special lady in my life who occassionally reads this blog so I hope she does not mind the 'spoiler'!
I have really fallen in love with this colour and would love to knit a sweater for myself with it someday.
Here is a picture of the gorgeous Malabrigo that is to become a Whisper Cardigan someday.
I bought 2 skeins.
And here are two other DK weight sock yarns that I picked up at Baadeck Yarns. Yummy!
Believe it or not, I actually have another project that will be ready to come off the needles soon. Go me!
