This time, I came out with two vintage booklets. They're great! The patterns are classic. Some of them I wouldn't put on any child, but others could be easily updated. I paid the grand sum of $1.00 for the two books, just slighly more than the original price.
Having finished John's gloves yesterday, I started thinking about my gloves. Earlier this week, Interweave's Knitting Daily had a free glove pattern, Norwegian Gloves by Nancy Bush. I studied the pattern yesterday and decided to make them. I can't do a lot on them this weekend because I can't print the pattern here at home. My printer's not cooperating; I think it's the cheap ink cartridges. Remind me never to buy them again, ok?
I did, however, knit up the cuff and the first five rows of the colour chart. Tomorrow, I'll print up the pattern at work and continue working on the gloves. The yarn I'm using is SandnesGarn's Lanett superwash wool. It's really nice and soft and is knitting up nicely.
Here's what the gloves will look like when finished.
Here's where I'm at with my gloves, as of this morning. The yarn isn't as white as it appears in the picture, but it also isn't as creamy as the ones in the original picture.
And now, back to the Ropes & Picots cardi.
