Wristables and More

I finished these up yesterday AM:







Pattern: Wristables by Chloe Nightingale
Hook Size: G (4.0 mm)
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Silk in Cinnamon, Chocolate and Lettuce (gifted/won in a prize from Megan)

Only modifications I did was a row of sc around the thumb opening.

I also found out that my allergy seems to be to 100% alpaca and using this didn't bother me at all and now I want more of it :P

I also received my swap package from Ravven at Twisted Skein on Wednesday:






My package came with three skeins of Wool In The Andes in Hyacinth, Evergreen and Stream. A skein of Knit Picks Sock Garden in Geranium, A skein of hand dyed wool yarn in the colorway Gemini (fingering weight), a bag of Hazelnut coffee, two bags of Gummi Bears, a package of tealights in vanilla, and Clover Takumi knitting needles-lots of em! I wanted the Clover 17 and 19's for ages, but was too cheap to buy them for myself and I saw a pattern last week using #17 and figured I would pick some up to give it a try! There was also a set of circulars.

I already have the Sock Garden (Geranium) on the hook making some more fingerless gloves (Koigu Fingerless Glove Pattern from the 2007 Crochet Pattern a Day Calendar), designed by Rainy Day Goods. It's a terrific pattern and is working up quickly. It'll match my winter coat perfectly.

Also, Joann is having a "Free Shipping" special, no minimum order until next Wednesday. The code is NOVFSE7. I finally ordered the larger bamboo handled Bates hooks, as well as a foldable blocking board for myself.

Thanksgiving was a success; fun, family and friends, no disasters, all the food was great (too much of it all) with lots of leftovers for today.

Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. By the way, periodically I use one of those crochet hooks that light up at Michaels. For a plastic hook, it doesn't work too bad at all and is really nice with dark colored yarn or yarn that is hard to see stitches with. (I know...that was random...just thought I would share...)
