Finished things:)




Yay, I have some finished items to show off.I would add that whilst making the mohair fingerless gloves my youngest grandson (almost 9) greatly admired them and wanted a pair. I ended up making both grandsons a pair while down there in rowan cashsoft in a delightful beigy colour I found in the local yarn store. I have no photos because I didn't take camera with me.
Without further ado I giove you 2 pairs of fingerless gloves, my own pattern. One pair colinette mohairs, the other pair not sure but very very soft:) And another Calorimetry. I had an idea of making 2 matyching calorimetrys and stitching them together as a bra:)) They do have a cup shape to them when finished. However I haven't got round to it yet with the bad week we've had.
I'm now off to finish my first Hospice shawl as the lovely Jo of Celtic Memory yarns sent me sufficient, well more than sufficient yarn to finish casting off. Thanks Jo and yes pictures tomorrow hopefully when its blocked. If anyone hasn't tried Jo's yarns I highly recommend them

The wristers look very cosy and warm :-) I am LOL at the concept of joining 2 Calorimetry together to make a bra :-D

Love your colours! I like your glove pattern too! I do think its a great idea to make a bra top out of two calorimities....you could then cast on all the way round and knit down for a strappy top! lol
