What's This? More Than One Post In a Month?
It was a bit of a challange knitting gloves for my friends daughter. She's getting married Friday, yes the 13th. But she's unconventional like that. I decided on cotton because it will likely be a warm day. After trying a few patterns, it just wasn't working quite as I envisioned. So what else could I do but wing it. After knitting the first one, I was so impressed, well, I had to write the pattern up. It's pretty, feminine while not too frilly, and best of all a quick knit. The pattern for Always & Forever is available here as well as a PDF download on Ravelry. Knit with Patons Grace, which was a very nice experience. I'm not usually a 'cotton knitter', but this yarn may have changed my mind.
The Jasmine Mitts, which came before the wedding mitts but were left on the wayside while I worked the white ones, are so soft and comfy in Dale Baby Ull.
The pattern is here as well as a Ravelry download.
Other than that, the weather is lovely. Life goes on without much interruption. And, well, I think I'm on a roll. I've been knitting pretty regularly. Makes me happy.
