"Rabbit" fingerless gloves (my ravelry link)
'Wasting some time' this morning on Ravelry before needing to head out to the dentist appointments.... I was actually on the search for some easy sock patterns; ya know... to try something new.
And I came across these cute simply fingerless gloves.
After spending HOURS at the dentist (9:30AM - 12:30PM) and some lunch at the local Family Restaurant, I came home, sat... and gave the pattern a try.
Three hours (?) give or take.... and they turned out so cah-uuute!
Cassie modeled them for me; I sized the pattern down both on chain stitches (I did 24) and in the length of the palm and arms.
I had just enough yarn in this little dollar-bin find! 50 grams / 71 yards. And a WHOPPER of a price!
Cassie has been showing a bit of interest in crochet too...
and we BOTH were in heaven when we found this jackpot at the local library last night! :)
#42 caught my eye; maybe it's a sign seeing that Paul turned 42 yesterday. Maybe my next-next project will be an afghan for him. My next project will be one for Cassie.
And my current project progress....
As you can see, I "fixed" the stitch count and am growing correctly now. So....what to do with those first 19 rows (the red/white/blue slants)......???
I suppose I REALLY should try to undo them...somehow. But I won't make that decision until later on, after it's grown a bit more.
