So, I’m currently in the hospital – but doing fine, not to worry. I’ve finished off the Christmas sweater for my cousin’s kiddo, but pictures and details are going to have to wait along with the rest of my post-Christmas round up.
My IV’s are gone, and my hands are functional again, so the first thing I did to cope with being here was knit knit knit. I picked up this magazine a few months ago after falling head of heels for some of the patterns in it.
I’ve a friend that enjoys all things Jane Austen and has a cold office, so I’ve started on a pair of fingerless gloves for her. It is truly impossible in this lighting (which makes everything a sickly green colour…) to capture what it looks like so far…but here it is.
I’ve never done a slipped stitch pattern before… it makes for a lovely texture. This is the “wrong” side of the gloves and eventually it will be flipped inside out, but I’ve a ways to go yet. I like the yarn – Knit Picks DK Swish in Indigo Heather. It’s quite pretty, and I like working with it so far.
