mermaid gloves and more
For the lovely, lovely, mermaid gloves I decide to swatch out a lovely, lovely light blue sport weight Blue Sky Alpaca. I am thinking that I can get the gauge with the size 1 needles......I will have to see if the material becomes too rigid. The other yarn I am going to try is the variegated Koigu ppm. I am wondering if the varigation will distract from the patterning of the stitches. The only way I know how to find out is swatching. We received the fall issue of Knitscene yesterday and of course I saw a number of projects in there to whip out as well. The longest day of the year was yesterday....darn how am I going to find more time in the day!.
