ANYWHOOOO, I guess we'll talk about decorations another day anyway when my love and interest for knitting and crocheting dimmers a little.
This time, I made GLOVES. Love gloves! Because its winter and we need warmth, because there is lots of love surrounding the holiday season even though it is currently in between Christmas/New Years and Valentines/Mardi Gras. And because I really do love things that rhymes.
I know my last blog title was "Cheers to Knitting" (which I changed to "Cheers to Yarn" on Jan 4, 2012 because someone sent me a private message about how improper it was to include "knitting" in the name when the item really was crocheted... my apologies if I offended anyone ) when I actually crocheted the slipper, now this project I actually DID knit! I got the cool colors by knitting a string of red yarn and a string of grey/multicolored yarn at the same time! And so the patches of colors is the natural pattern of when which color decided to be on the top side.
I didn't knit the fingers or thumbs because it is truly too warm in the South for that to seem like a practical thing for me to make... But I think that will be my next project - to figure out how to knit a glove with fingers and thumbs. I like to figure out my own patterns, and when thinking about how to make gloves, it seems like I have to knit or crochet little finger-sized pockets and attach them to the top of the gloves... AKA a lot of work! I am sure it will be fun though! I wonder which movie I will be watching while knitting all those little digits!
