Stripy Magic

I have a very good friend, Lynn. She's magic, as I've already mentioned. In February, I made her some special socks.

Linaria Bipartita, blogged here
It was special yarn, and I had some left over. I asked if she'd like stripy fingerless gloves, and she said she would. I weighed the yarn, split it into two parts, and started knitting. I paired it with a sparkly black since she's magic. Magic sparkles.
In a Hanukah-like miracle, I had enough yarn to continue the striping all the way up each mitt.

Elphaba Mitts (mine raveled here),
knit in Juno Fiber Arts Buffy Sock, Wistful colorway
and Knit Picks Stroll Glimmer, Black colorway
This pattern reminds me of the Jaywalker sock pattern, which I like a lot. I like the way it makes the edging interesting, and it gets more pronounced with a bit of blocking.
