This Week's Knitting

I finished a pair of fingerless gloves. I'm not thrilled with them, but not bad for the first time I guess. They look better worn. I hope I'll improve on the next pair.
Now, for an illusion.








Surprise!




I knitted it for my pal in the WWCS. I'm going with a snowflake theme. Could it be headed into a box of goodies for YOU?

This is the progress on "Branching Out." I really like knitting this pattern.
Next to get OTN:
~hat and maybe a scarf to match the pink fingerless gloves.
~another pair of fingerless gloves, and maybe a matching hat.
~a hat and scarf for my nephew.
I'd better get knitting!
I hope everyone had a happy weekend.

Oh the cloth is really cute! Your pal will love it, I know I do :)
That scarf is great, neat pattern! I need to crochet a pair of fingerless gloves, but I think yours look great too! Some things do look better on then just laying down, I make a baseball cap that looks great on, but to take a pic of it, just laying doesn't cut it...lol

It all looks great, especially branching out! Are you going to give me a blocking tutorial??

No snow here; just a very cold rain. Pout.

Your fingerless gloves look good. It's probably just the pattern that you're not thrilled with. Think about trying one of these for your next pait.

everything looks great - but i love that illusion cloth! very impressive. although i'm not feeling like looking at snow much today - there's too much outside.

Your snowflake is nice!

I like the shadow knitting.. I haven't tried it but yours looks super. The gloves look great...I think we are our own harshest critics
