Wyvern for you arms

I really should have posted this sooner, because I think these are really great, but it slipped my mind. Anyway, Annemarie of Chartreuseknits wrote me recently to ask if she could modify my Wyvern socks to make gauntlets and if so, how would I feel about her offering the subsequent pattern for others. I thought it was a great idea and gave her the go ahead and what she came up with turned out just amazing. Give it a look here.

I've also been stocking my stash in a manner for which I feel some shame. I still have to finish writing my pattern for the corset top and I have a bit of knitting to do for Knitty Gritty, still. Don't even get me started on the other things I have lined up to do, but my eye wanders when I go to the LYS and, inevitably, my hard earned money and I are soon parted. I'm keeping myself on track but I'm really looking forward to knitting up some new items soon.

The first yarn I got while I was over at the KnitCafe. It's Rowan's Felted Tweed
I bought it in a chocolate brown color and have some skeins of a mauve shade to compliment it. I've swatched it a little and love the heathery quality. I can't wait to start knitting with it.

The second acquisition is a large amount of Baruffa Maratona in a deep shade of dusty purple and a soft shade of blue gray.

The color is nearly right. I would say they are both a little less blue, but that's pretty close on my monitor. I haven't the foggiest what I'll do with it, but I sure love touching it.

And just so you don't think I've been a complete slacker, I did finally finish a HFM Glove.

The double-knit in purl worked great and I hope to get you a quick tutorial soon.
