Today’s work-in-progress post is extra special. I’ve been working hard on creating a companion fingerless glove pattern to go along with my Queen Of Hearts hat and I’m giving you all a sneak peek.
I actually broke down and bought some yarn for the project … crazy huh? I think I’ve only bought 7 balls of yarn this year as I’ve been using up my handspun almost as fast as I spin it. Anyway, I’m using two different shades of Paton’s Kroy Sock to give this new pattern a good test run and it seems to be working out quite well. The first glove is finished now and the second one well underway. I’m hoping to have this pattern available for download sometime in January. Be sure to stay tuned for more spoiler photos!
What are you working on today? Are you deep in the throes of holiday knitting or are you just knitting for the sheer pleasure of it? I’d love to hear all about it!
My knitting needles have been clicking away at various projects these days but I have been putting most of my time and effort into working on my book so I thought I would share a few spoiler photos.
These bad boys are my Skeleton Key Fingerless Gloves and they’re made to go along with the Skeleton Key Tam.
They’re worked in light fingering weight yarn (pictured in Belfast Mini Mills Ltd. Specialty Sock) and feature intricate cabling and twisted stitches. Although they’re certainly not a super quick knit, they are definitely fun!
It is still going to be a while yet before my book is ready but it really is wonderful to watch things come together.
Be sure to check back often as I will be posting more spoiler pics and sneak peeks and I go along!
I’ve been very busy working on some new patterns for a book!
I can’t tell you how exciting this is for me!
It is still going to be a while yet before the book is ready but I thought that I would share a few spoiler pics of one of the patterns for the book.
These are the Fiona Fingerless Gloves made to match the Fiona Beret/ Tam. They are knit up in the always gorgeous Malabrigo Sock in colorway 800, Tiziano Red.
