Sorry, more gloves...
I think I must have some mild form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for knitters. If it's not endlessly making socks, I'm non-stop glove making. Handy (good grief - no pun intended) for Christmas presents, but I need some more variety... if only stop you lot getting bored.
The yarn is "Opal - Rainforest Doctor Fish" and these are for my Mam as part of her Christmas present. I think I might make some matching trainer socks for her. This is 6ply, which is producing some very snuggly warm gloves, and it has an extra 50g, so I reckon trainer socks are definitely a possibility.
I originally bought this yarn for me because I loved the colours in the pictures I saw. I think this is a faded batch as the lilac stripe (in 'real life') is more of a pale pink than lilac. My Mam loves all thinks pink. Personally, I don't do pink.
The intention had been to pop out to buy a needle to finish the pixie coat but I have spent all day cooking. My lovely step dad is coming down to tile my kitchen and downstairs loo tomorrow, so rather than clamber through a newly tiled, not quite dry kitchen grub's up, in advance. I promise I will finish the coat... even if it does mean sewing.
