Stitch-n-Snitch designed some fingerless gloves inspired by the Twilight Series of books. I've been wanting to make some since I saw the pattern and this weekend I took the plunge and managed to finish one while watching a movie Saturday night.
The yarn is Knit Picks Swish which I happened to get a couple of skeins of in this Merlot Heather colorway. First, the yarn is SOOOOOOO soft. I just kept petting it as I was knitting with it. Second, the colorway reminded me of the werewolf contingent in the books. The warm brown with just a hint of red--definitely more wolf-ish than vampire-ish. Plus, I'm pulling for Jacob in the whole love triangle thing--not that there isn't a lot to love about Edward.
Now, my model for the picture was little Diva. Stacey, you will appreciate that after she tried this on she said, "Mom, I REALLY want a pair of these--in pink." I'm thinking that maybe I should quit showing her what I'm working on.
