A finished project

I have FINALLY finished my fingerless gloves. I am quite pleased with them, but I wish that I had knitted them in the small size rather than medium as they would look nicer if they were a bit more fitted. The first glove took me ages, there was plenty of unravelling involved and much confusion with having to learn how to knit with 5 douple pointed needles, but I am pleased to say that the second glove knitted up pretty quickly. I think that I may be getting the hang of this knitting lark!! It has been really quite warm in Christchurch since I finished them (I am soooo not complaining...), so still waiting to try them out.
I am still finishing up the fairy doll that I am making for Talia, just need to get some wool for the hair and make the felt wings. Now though I need a new knitting project, I am thinking either a sweet little rucksack for Talia or I may be adventurous and knit myself a top, not sure if I am quite ready for that though..........

Wonderful!

We have matching gloves :D

And definitely knit something for yourself... no one else quite appreciates the work that goes into knitting a garment than the one who knitted it. I've had projects for myself in my queue for about a year and I keep starting stuff for other people. So do it! For you!

Nice work!!and with five needles! I have just struggled with four needles to make some cupcakes and boy it was like wrestling a long toed sloth :P

Fingerless gloves like that are on my (long) to-do list.

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
