So i just made these gorgeous fingerless mittens for typing (go to Spindlicity and look up projects from their first issue. They're called "Del Mar"). And I made them in Cherry Tree Hill superwash sock yarn in Blues and Greens.
I am 5/8" and my hand is nearly 8" around. So I made the size medium/large...it's what I generally wear. But these are too big on me. I thought about adding a longer cuff, with a strip of elastic yarn through the wrist, then I thought I'd just trade them and make another pair that fit. So--first to tempt me, first to get.
I'll post that they're gone when they're gone.
I also have to brag about some spinning/dying.
The pale rainbow is Koolaid, superwash + 15% nylon for socks. The dark rainbow is Koolaid, Rit, superwash +15% mohair for socks. The green/blue is Wilton cake color, superwash + 15% mohair. I'm going to make some twisted sister socks. I started last night at 2am when I couldn't sleep.
Pretty twisted already.
