Knitted Gift

If you happen to remember last year I started on a pair of blue bamboo knitted gloves from the book Knitting New Mittens and Gloves. Well those got put on the back burner as winter became spring and outdoor activates took precedence. Now that fall is officially here I once again picked up my knitting basket. To my dismay I am not able to find the already started gloves. They are here somewhere, but my two year old has taken a liking to my yarn and everything made from it. I needed a last minute gift for a friend’s birthday so I went to work on these purple fingerless gloves. I probably should have gone to the store and bought something as I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish them, but I love giving and receiving handcrafted items. She loved them which made the late hours worth all the effort.

Witches Ball

Thanks to everyone who left their kind words on my blog about the hat for the ball...
Now for the bad news. I have no pictures of myself from the ball. I was so preoccupied with everyone else’s costumes that I forgot to take one of myself. Silly!!! Here is a picture, minus me, of my corset.

We had the most amazing night. I was fortunate enough to see Koreshakti Tribal Fusion which is a remarkable blend of contemporary belly dancing accompanied by industrial, traditional, hypnotic live music. Another reason as to why I forgot to take more photographs. I was so enthralled with their performance that I did not want to miss one moment of the entertainment.
If a picture ever pops up of me I will post it
