This is one of the first pieces that I have made for myself. I have very sensitive skin when it comes to fabrics. Wool, even a small amount is itchy. I have some wool sweaters, but I have to wear long sleeve shirts underneath. So I haven't made anything for me, until I found this great cotton yarn. Fun!
This past week I made a pumpkin hat for baby P! I am working on one for me (cotton yarn), so we can match on Halloween! Nerdy!
The day before baby P was born I made these fun owl gloves!
They are a labor of love and each glove was made twice.
The pattern called for size 6 needles for the cuff and size 8 needles for the hand - see the left hand! When I made the right glove I forgot to switch to size 8 needles. Opps!
Ok, I'll just remake the left glove. As I was working the 2nd left glove I noticed that I had forgotten a few rows of knit between the cuff and hand on the right glove. Ahh! I didn't really like the fit of the right glove, so after I finished the left one, I tore back right glove and started the hand again. Fun times!!
I do love how them came out.
In addition to my pumpkin hat, I am working on a cable scarf and a square blanket that is supposed to be for baby P - this one might take me awhile!
