What a lucky thing--off early today and home with plenty of time left to craft. This means that not only can I play with the new Fair Isle glove pattern I'm working on (it's probably not what you're imagining), I can also post the promised photo of the pair of Marin's Gloves I just finished in deep turquoise.
I really feel like you can't go wrong with this pattern. When I originally wrote it (for the awesome miss Marin Camille Hood,
a truly talented artist in her own right who will maybe one day teach me to embroider half as good as she does...) I used a lovely cream white yarn, and the gloves looked great. Then I knit a pair in burgundy, and they also looked great. Then I knit a pair in bright sunny yellow, and they looked great, too! And now that I see them in turquoise I think this might be my favorite color so far, until I remember how great they looked in all the other colors and I have to think these are just the undeniably great looking gloves.
Maybe I will have a contest to see if there's a way to make the pattern not look great.
Speaking of contests, I have some in the works and will hopefully get those going soon. Don't have the energy to do it tonight, but within the next few days...maybe.
