Autumn Knitting...


With the cooler weather on the way I'm in the mood for knitting. What better way to start than by knitting myself some fingerless gloves! I've really wanted a pair for a long time. I knitted them using Patons Zhivago Yarn . The pattern is from Patons Book 1277. The gloves are very comfortable and soft.
Now I have finished the gloves I want to knit some socks. I bought one skein of Noro sock yarn at The Yarnbarn and two skeins of Moda Vera Noir at Spotlight. I have never knitted with double pointed needles but I'm sure it can't be too hard. At least I won't have to sew the socks up at the end.

They look wonderful. What a great idea. Did they take long to make? Now its getting cold they would be nice. Have a great Easter

The fingerless mitts look great and the Zhivago yarn always knits up so nicely too. The Noro yarn looks beautiful.

I love the colours in the Noro yarn. I knitted a scarf in one of these yarns and it was so amazing. The little owl you made a while ago is too cute!

They are gorgeous! I really need to take time out and knit some...after I knit the socks I've been planning for two years, of course. :-) Thanks for sharing the news of my Shabby Roses BOM and giveaway.
