I had lunch before snb yesterday with the girls and ridiculously five out of six of us ordered exactly the same lunch. Guess which one?
While we were there, Zena and RoseRed played in a ladylike fashion with my new ladylike finished project, the Vivien Leigh Gloves.
They've taken such a long time to finish because I put them down in March with only the fingers on one hand to do, and didn't get back to them until last week.
Beautifully written pattern, with glorious little finishing details that elevate it from just knitting to a handmade treasure. For example, the edges of the button slits are incorporated icord, and the ribbon spaces are marvellously symmetrical. Clever.
PATTERN: Vivien Leigh Gloves by Miriam Felton
RAV PROJECT ID: Vivien Leigh Gloves
YARN: La Drougerie Alpaga bought in Paris last October
NEEDLE SIZE: 2mm
They're so dainty, and remarkably similar in colour to the Berocco Ultra Alpaca Light. So identical that I used the Berocco for the button loops, and even I can't tell the difference.
So now that my hands are super warn, I think spring is on it's way. It's certainly looked like it this week when I've been out on my runs. The year round lifeguards have come out of the tower.
