merry Christmas to me!

So, David and Nina gave me this lovely yarn for Christmas:

It’s from a local farm in Colorado.

I decided that its fate was to become a pair of fingerless gloves, so I dug up the Fetching pattern from Knitty.

I finished the second one last night. I had to rip back the last rows of the first one, because I decided I still don’t like that picot bind-off; it looks sloppy–at least when I do it–and it makes the glove too loose around the knuckle. I did a few extra rows instead, with a decrease to make them tighter around the knuckles, and I like them a lot! Mary obligingly took a modeling photo:

    Very nice, Heather! I recently made a pair of this type of mitten/glove myself…. I’m thinking I might add a flip-top to them, so I can use them at the barn. Lovely yarn.
