Actual knitting content
It's been days since I've been able to post a picture of my current knitting. But here's where I am now on the fingerless gloves that I was talking about yesterday. I decided to use some 100% alpaca that I found in my stash. The gloves were originally going to be in red Dale of Norway Falk. Those three skeins will become something else at some point.
I found the pattern at Knitting Pattern Central. The link from their page is to Interweave Knits Online. Of course I added this to my projects page on Ravelry so it's all over the cyberworld.
I'm ready to start the fingers and thumb on this first glove. This one went pretty fast so I expect to finish by the weekend.
There's another holiday knitting party tonight, hosted by Unraveled. I went to Trader Joe's yesterday to pick up a few dessert items. Well, really, just some cookies. It's really hard to find cookies that don't have nuts in them. Avoiding bananas in cookies wasn't so hard. It's helpful to know people's food preferences and aversions/allergies so you don't end up with a lot of stuff that no one can eat. I wanted some of those chocolate covered coffee beans but they didn't have any. But just about everything else. Chocolate covered edamame anyone?
