Super Sparkly Gloves

I recently walked down to the local knitting shop to get some buttons to finish these gloves and found some really cool ones.

Apparently these buttons are Civil War replica buttons. They are also really pretty and go nicely at the bottom of these gloves.

I managed to sew them on while simultaneously teaching “school at home” because the teachers decided to go on strike this week. I’m not letting these kids fall behind on the already ridiculously low standards of the California school system.

Ankles and Heads

Six months or so ago, I was making a KnitPicks order and needed to get to the free shipping threshold. I know it would save me money in the long run to just pay the shipping fee and not get extra stuff, but it’s yarn. It’s not like it’s something I’m not going to use. There was a special run of Felici worsted weight yarns, and this color way called out to me to be turned into leggings.

I got two balls so the stripes could be the same, and then had to figure out where to start to make that happen. The leggings went very quickly, and I had plenty left over to make a matching hat.

Because of the color, I decided to make everything in a large child size.The colors reminded me of Limited Too/Justice, so I made it in that tween sort of size.

This yarn is super soft, and the best part is that it is fully machine wash and dry. The only downside is that it only comes about in limited runs. Otherwise I’d be buying a whole box of it right now. But I should probably use up some of the other yarn I have first.

The Only Christmas Gift This Year

Well, not the only one I gave, but the only one I made.

I had a bunch of light blue and gray Palette yarn from Knit Picks from a frogged project, so I set about making a hat at random.

At first I thought I was going to end up selling this hat, until it came time to decide on Christmas presents. I decided instead that it would be perfect to give one of my grandmas.

Once I had that in mind, I also decided to make a pair of gloves to go along with it.

And now, matching gloves. #knitting

I was going to wing it on the glove pattern, until I realized the book I was using the sizing chart from, Custom Knits Accessories, had the perfect pattern.

I applied the same style of stripe pattern to both the hat and gloves, a bit bigger for the hat than for the gloves. It’s my favorite way to stripe two colors together.
