A couple of pics of FOs!

OOOOOooo! In response to my blog post about not having a pic of the finished fingerless gloves, DD Amy took a pic of hers! The flash washed out the colors a bit, but they are made with fingering weight handspun wool and soymilk batts a friend sent for a swap. The colors are grey/blue with a touch of pink. The pattern was super simple. I cast on 36 stitches on size 4 dbl points. The rolled hem is plain knit for 10 rows, then I switched to a 3x3 ribbing for 40 rows. The thumb is knit by breaking the round for 15 rows, then rejoining the circle for the remaining 20 rows. Bind off in EZ's sewn bindoff. Easy Peasy and great for the mild Texas winters. DD doesn't like her fingers covered and the fingerless mitts working out perfect for her!

This would be Angie in her Off to the Races Scarf. She really loves it! I have more matching handspun to make her a matching pair of fingerless gloves!

Next time, pics of a reorganized craft room and my new toys... 2 Brother Knitting Machines.  I won't promise, but maybe some machine knit goodies too!

Okay Mary, you are cheating me. Get up and get busy. I have not heard from you in some time; you have not posted anything new. Love you, Teri.

HI Mary! In response to you about he Accuquilt Go Cutter...it is OK, but I have not used it much. I think it is wonderful for odd shapes like circles and double wedding ring shapes.
