Two Christmas gifts are finished, and I feel pretty safe blogging about them early. (Hey- if you don't normally read this blog and you've lived with me at some point in your life, maybe you should put it off for a few days? But thanks for stopping in!)
Pattern: Herringbone Mittens (sort of) by Elliphantom
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull and All Things Heather (I've got no colorway names for either one)
Needles: Knit Picks DPNs in US 1.5 and US 2.5
Modifications: I added four extra stitches for fit, and made them fingerless gloves instead.
My sister just got a new pink coat, and I think they'll go very nicely with it. And whew, I'm so glad she stuck with her favorite color scheme when picking that coat.
I also finished up some fingerless gloves for my brother. I'm a little worried about the fit, but other than that I really like them. He's a picky guy, so I'm hoping my color choice and pattern will suit him. The guy sitting next to me on the plane yesterday assured me that they're a very fine gift, so that's something!
Pattern: My own
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, less than 1/2 skein and Rowan Felted Tweed, less than 1 skein
Needles: US3 DPNs
I hope all of your Christmas knitting is going well also :)
