I’ve been taking photos of this exact view from my bedroom window using my iPhone and posting it on Instagram. This time though, it’s a proper camera photo. It’s been better, but this is a pretty good view. Okay, on to the knitting whenever you’re ready.
Fingerless gloves are so easy to make, quite addictive really. I know they’re not the most practical items for Dubai weather but I find myself reaching for something to keep my hands warm when the AC is cranked way down low in the malls, cinemas and offices.
My latest FOs are quite special. This first one for instance is a test knit using my Cloud Nine worsted base. I enjoyed knitting this pair. The pattern is not out yet. This is designed by Alisha Bright.
I love the cables! So easy to do, even without cable needles, and the finished look is a lot more complicated than it really is. I love the squishiness of the thicker fabric, but it is soft and not at all bulky. Each glove used a little under 75 yards. Raveled!
This next pair is another quickie. Knitted in about a day, half a day for each glove using sport weight yarn. It flew off the needles. i am really pleased with how it turned out. I didn’t bother blocking it as it’s great as it is.
This pair is for a literary-themed KAL with the Fingerless Glove Maniacs group on Ravelry. I chose the pattern called Midnight Dreary. Yes, I have been watching The Following so Poe is on my mind lately. I couldn’t find an e e cummings-inspired pattern which I liked. I might make it again as it really is easy to make. Raveled!
I failed to take a photo of all 9 hats, but here is the first set I finished of the Naylor Street hats for my daughter and her family. The wee mittens just had to be done as there was enough yarn left anyway. These, along with two other adult-sized hats for my other kids, are on their way home with my brother. Raveled!
