What's Off My Needles
Remember this post? Well my project is done and this is what it looks like! Isn't that color just stunning?! I'm glad you can't see too close because they are far from perfect (like not exactly the same length) but I'm so very happy for my first attempt at anything this tricky. If you click here it will take you to a link to the pattern I used and it's free! Just in case you want to make your own pair of fingerless mitts. The next pair is well underway for a Christmas present so I won't be able to show you. This gorgeous yarn is what I'm using it is Malabrigo Rios a wonderful super wash 100% wool worsted weight yarn. I have learned so much by taking the class to make the mitts, I've even started another project that works in a round for that one I'm using a 80% bamboo 20% wool yarn, it makes me smile to think of bamboo yarn I don't know why :)
What do you have on your needles? Are you thinking of Christmas gifts yet?
