I am impressed with myself tonight because I am on a roll! I am on a creative binge here! My oh my it may have to say “Creative” on my tomb stone instead of “You Got A Problem With That?”. What am I saying, I can have room for both!
I am in another Hiya Hiya KAL (knit along), and my project is 1/2 complete! These are fingerless mitts. The pattern is called Blossom. I have one completed and will be finishing up the other in a day or 2 depending on how the wind is blowing up my skirt.
I chose to make the thumb in stockingette … mistake! It would be better in the Blossom pattern like the hand. I will go back and change that. I also chose a very frilly cast off … good job me!!! These are so girly they can hold their own with frills.
The cuff is a cute cable and the hand is a lace (winter lace). I will make more of these for Christmas gifts this year. I think I will add beads to the backs of the hands.
I guess I should have said, “Spoiler Alert!” prior to saying these will be for Christmas this year, but … well … I don’t think the women I will make these for actually read my blog. Yes, I do feel sad for them! They are missing out on so much. Poor things must be suffering from some lack of technological skills – God bless their hearts.
The photos are after the words this time not sprinkled through them. Yep, trying something new.
The hand model is me. Yes, I am aware I have fat little fingers. I happen to be a good cook who enjoys her own cooking. Fat is the body’s lace, and I am quite fancy these days. I think it was mean of y’all to point that out, or make me feel like you would. Whatever! I blame y’all, not me!!
Incase you could not tell from my snippy mood, I am tired. I will post this and get my beauty rest.
Good Night and Happy Knitting!
