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.

Very hip! You are the coolest skinny-little-waif-with-talent I have ever met, you know? One of these days I would love it if we could sit down and you could show me how to knit??? Crochette really has it's limits.

Those are so cute--an old-timey knitting circle would be fun.
