Dashing


The lovely Dashing for Fingerless Mitts for Fall KAL.

Pattern: Dashing
Yarn: See Jayne Knit - Brandy in the Garden - 100% wool - 100 g/200yds
Needles: US6

Love these colors. Love this yarn.




It's v. hard to take a pic of your own two hands!

This is my first pair of fingerless mitts and I adore them. Will be a little sad to give them away - but it's the right this to do. :-)

Cuz it's time to start "Paying it Forward!" I'll list the chosen bloggers (and choosing methodology) in my next post.



Check out the goodies from Jessicah! A gorgeous little case she made, a dino track bag for Z (he was t-h-r-i-l-l-e-d to get a present) containing a T-Rex cookie cutter (gingery dino goodness on the way) and smarties (I only ate 3!). And a giant bag-0-roving for my spinning joy. Aren't those colors so Caribbean?


Lovely embroidery. :-)
She made this for her 1 year/100 posts celebration.
Thank you thank you thank you thankyouyouyou!!!!


And roving from Keri! I hadn't noticed the red in this until taking the photo on the porch and the leaf fell next to it. Total heaven. Thanks Keri!!!! Pure sheep sunshine!


I'm so fortunate to have such great friends...

btw - With the change in the weather I'm not sure how much more outdoor photos there will be this year. Yikes!


Treat from Hello Yarn has had her twist set. Another batch of bouncy goodness. Going to knit this one up for a Scarf to raffle in our office United Way drive in October. If I have enough gumption I'll spin up the other 1/2 and make matching hat and mitts.



In Z-land - we made a cake and he happily cleaned the spatula.
Yes - I'm "that" mom. The one who risks salmonella as a trade-off for Z's happiness. Seriously, if this is the biggest risk I take, we're all doing well.


"Can I PLEASE have just ONE sprinkle????"


Happy Birthday nuttnhubby! Here's to many many more. xoxoxo...

those gloves are AWESOME.

and licking the beaters is mandatory. :-)

Jessicah said...

Glad you like the package! And I never died once from licking the beater- which we did our whole lives- maybe eggs didn't have salmonella back then- or maybe we had better immune systems 'cos we licked the beater.

I have to knit some dashing too! Happy Birthday Nutnhubby!

Katie said...

If you can't lick the beaters, I don't think life is worth living :)

Amy said...

I'm so glad to see the yarn put to good use ... and the colors - WOW!

Happy Birthday Nutnhubby!nk

Ooh, cute mitts, you've been busy. You must make a pair for yourself, you deserve a pair or pretty mitts.

My little one is allergic to eggs so we use a substitute and can always lick the beaters worry-free.

Sasha said...

umm, that's "pair of" I hate typos!

Awesome gloves! I always feel a little street urchiny (in the best way!) when I wear fingerless gloves!

We have a chocolate chip recipe that has no eggs and is NOT meant to be baked---it is just so you can eat the raw dough yumminess.

And, I have chocolate brownie drying on my face right now from the wooden spoon I liked clean.

What a beautiful set of gloves, I just love the yarn you chose! I'm glad you liked the roving, I thought it was so soft and pretty! Can't wait to see what you spin up!

I subscribe to the "Nanny" derived belief that as long as the eggs are pasteurized, its ok. Lets me sleep well at night (and eat cookie dough) anyway!

Love the yarn for the fingerless mitts! The purple and green combo is classic!

Love the pumpkin holding mitts! And I wish I could have some of that cake... yummm!
