So I knit these:
Regina Cable and Bobble Fingerless Mitts (pattern here)
in indigodragonfly's MCN sock,
I Can't Believe It's Not Pewter colorway
Take that, trolls!
After deciding that I was the boss of my hobby, I wanted to knit something fun.
So I knit another, identical pair. I gave them away to the person who loves my knitting the most, and now they're keeping her hands warm while she works. I was able to knit something enjoyable, and somebody loves them. Win-win.
I have a slight problem when it comes to the yarn: I love this yarn so much that I simultaneously want to sing its praises and keep it a secret. I am afraid if I tell you how much I love this yarn, you might decide to buy some for yourself. Not a knitter? Doesn't matter. This yarn is so soft you might want to buy it just to stroke gently in times of stress. I love this yarn so much that I've weighed what's left of the ball (after knitting two pair of fingerless gloves--pretty groovy), and am trying to decide what else I can make with 1.2 oz.of yarn. I'll find something. Have no fear.
I think the only possible solution to my fibery dilemma is this: Buy this yarn if you have to, but after you've pet it awhile, give it to me.
