In other news, I won a contest over at the knitallyear blog! Yay! I feel so special that I won ^_^ Apparently, I won 10 balls of yarn from Webs, and an autographed cartoon from Franklin Habit at The Panopticon blog! Yay!!!
My second FO this week was a pair of fingerless gloves for myself. This way I can knit while I’m waiting for the bus without getting (too) cold. I love the thumb on the pattern, and the yarn I used is really nice too.
Yarn: Just 1 skeins of Filtes King Kiss (which was splitty, but created a nice fabric) in 510 Charcoal and Mirasol Yarn Hacho (which I LOVE!) in a red-orange variegation
Needles: US 3 / 3.25mm
