Finishing a few wip's
I have had a few wip's for a while. So Sunday morning when i woke up i thought i would weave in their tails as that is all that needed to be done for months now but never got around to it.
wip's = works in progress
These gloves are a free pattern called Belle Ruffle gloves. As you can see by the number of projects they are a popular free pattern. I was just using up scrapes when I made these. That is why the color blocking on mine instead of just two colors But you can use a ton of colors with this pattern and fair isle knitting would work well too. The buttons where given to me as a gift from a good friend. She works in a collage dance department and at times people donate supplies they can't use and every now and again I am the beneficiary of some of those supplies and this is one of those. The yarn used is scraps left over from my dear mother in laws stash. I started these gauntlets back in November of 2012 i knit them up in about 2 days then they just sat around waiting for buttons and weaving in of tails. I sewed the buttons on last weekend and finished the tails yesterday it is about time right. But i guess it is not too bad as I can use them for Valentines day I guess to be sort of festive.
This hat is another long time need to weave in the tails is all project. took about 2 days to knit then it sat for about 6 months. My oldest daughter is in x-country and this was made during that season which is the first few months of school. yes you guessed it that season is long over but I guess it can be used next year during the season. The pink in this hat is also from my MIL's stash of yarn. The aqua I purchased to go with it. Bottom photo closest to true color but in reality it is a little brighter than that too.
