FOs and Prizes

I was able to do a couple quick knits.

First I love the Fetching fingerless gloves by Cheryl Niamath
these are with Knit Picks in Andean Treasure Alpaca.. so soft in Summer Sky

another pair in the works with Noro Silk/Cotton very nice! I know that I have plans to make a few more pair for gifts and a couple for myself is a must. These will be gifted soon as well.

Then I knit a pair of socks not sure how I did them so quickly, the pain meds laying down resting and NOT sleeping well had to atribute to them getting done so quickly. The KAL has started for Debra Chinn's new pattern California Hikers published in Laura's New book Friendly Socks. Theres a new group for the book and KAL sock from it too! This was the first KAL! Have the Book join us if not get the book and join us for lots of fun & theres prizes too!! Come on over with me! I hope to see some familar names join!

Cpurl sent me a package for her blog contest questionaire about herself. I've done some swaps with her in the past and have followed her both on knitty & her blog for sometime now so I got to know her a little...Some questions I took a wild guess at.. 1 wrong!! WOOOHOOO! Stariel won first 100% Way to go!! A sock kit she made up with beautiful things all wrapped in pretty tissue paper and ribbon.

First up the lovely note card and set of Brittany Needles 5" DPNs size 2 in a cute hello kitty baggy...So cute..

A nice Lantern Moon Silk Taffeta Bag a shimmering in jewel tone green. Just beautiful!

and 2 gorgeous skeins of Lorna Laces Shepard Sport in Bold Red

Thank you so much for the Great prizes!!! I LOVE them all!

My one skein pal made me a pair of Fetching fingerless gloves using Knitpicks elegance. What a lovely pattern! Between the pair I received and seeing your lovely pair, I'm going to have to make a set too.

The Fetchings are cute! Must try!

I joined the Calif. Hikers KAL too-but haven't started them yet-what yarn did you use? It looks so shiny and pretty!

wendy said...

I love the Fetching mitts too - have done two pairs in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino (as I love this yarn) and will be making many more I suspect. As they only take one skein they are great for those odd balls in my stash!

Your Fetching look fab, I especially like the Noro pair.

The socks look lovely, the sheen on the yarn is gorgeous.

Nice gifties!

I really like your fetchings. They look warm and cozy and ready to keep your hands warm!

Gosh, you've been knitting up a storm - your Fetchings look absolutely perfect, and so do the socks! And what a pretty yarn!
