Spent some time (too much time really) the last two days searching Ravelry for a gauntlet and cowl combo to knit for myself for this fall/winter. I decided that when I finish the sweater for Baby M, finish Jer's sweater, and finish re-casting off the cuffs on the sweater I made for him last year, I may just have time for a little something for myself. That is, if I can squeeze it in before the next round of baby knitting (and yes, pun intended).
Anyway, here are my two patterns of choice, for now . . .
Cabled Fingerless Gloves - gotta love the cute little beads! I have the perfect little silvery-white seed beads to use for these.
Fresco Basket Whip Cowl - I already plan on having to make this longer, I want the "hood" look to be higher on my head.
I am thinking that I am going to use the Naturally Caron Country yarn I picked up at Hobby Lobby, on clearance for 2 bucks a skein. Can't walk away from that! I have 3 or 4 skeins in a very sultry and elegant Claret. I am in love with this yarn, even though it is flawed and I get frustrated every time I use it. It is splitty, but the sheen and colors and softness are scrumptious.
My biggest feat to overcome? Pulling off wearing both . . . .
