Pattern: Simple Fingerless Gloves, available for free on Ravelry.
Yarn: The green was a fingering weight in Cascade, and the Yellow Brick Road was from Wildfoote Sock yarn from Brown Sheep.
Needles: I knit these on size 1, instead of the called-for size 0.
Mods: Well, the obvious one is adding a winding yellow brick road through one of the handwarmers. The stitch pattern in the road was a seed stitch to imitate bricks, and I honestly just made it up as I went. After both handwarmers were knit up, I embroidered the ruby red red slippers, witch hat, and broomstick to complete the look.
Time Frame: April 27-May 4, 2012. SUPER FAST. ;)
Worst Part: Probably trying to figure out the Yellow Brick Road through the ribbing at the bottom.
Best Part: Easy pattern that was simple to knit up quickly for a gift!
During a trip to the cities last weekend for my dance competition, I was able to stop by the celebration and drop off the handwarmers in-person, have a margarita, and get a little quality girl time in!
My girls did well at the comp, though it was run a little differently than we were used to. It felt great to get home to Duluth after a busy weekend, and was greeted by this sign:
Awww... I think I kinda like that guy.
The cats are pretty okay too. ;)
