So, I've just finished knitting something for her.
But because I know she reads this blog, the only thing I will reveal about the project is this.
She knows it's a pair of fingerless gloves, and she's already seen a photo of the yarn that I was going to use, but how does it actually look when worn?
You'll just have to be patient, Faith.
As much as I love making gifts for people, I am never going to knit with fingering weight yarn again. So thin, so small, just so difficult to knit and so time-consuming! I love the gloves and the pattern, I just didn't appreciate the slow going-ness of the project. It nearly drove me insane.
Only 8-ply weight or above yarn for me in future!
Oh, I'll reveal this too. A sweet label design from aprintaday that I managed to adapt for my own use. You can download the template for yourself too.
Update: She got them!
