I finished my long fingerless gloves:

Colour is somewhat greener in real life but you can see the stitches

Really pleased with how they turned out, although in true Scottish fashion, the weather went from too cold to wear them with bare arms to too warm to wear them at all in a week! Still, it’s not like we can expect this glorious sunshine to last, I expect I’ll be wearing them again soon enough.

And here they are on!

My current WIP is the Spring Garden top which made a brief appearance in my last post. Now on the correct size needle, it is growing nicely, I’ve divided off the sleeves and am working on the main body now. Soon I’ll have the fun of working out what to do with the waist decreases given the pattern as written wouldn’t fit me even if my tension wasn’t off! I foresee a lot of putting it on waste yarn and trying it on in my future…

The last thing I have to show off is new yarn, which isn’t green! This lovely stormy petrol blue arrived from the Yarn Yard last week, courtesy of the Boy for my birthday. Now I’ve seen it, I wish there had been more to order, I think it would make a lovely jumper or cardigan. But even I’m not small enough to get a top out of 420 m of 4 ply so I shall just have to find another use for it, oh the hardship 😉
