Yarn Along

A post of my current read and what is cast on my needles ~ Inspired by Ginny over at {Small Things}

Gloves for the boy

I finished the gloves... and on time to! *grin*
I spent the last night before his birthday knitting like crazy to finish them and he just loves them :) They are so nice and thick with the wool and they fit fairly well to. They're a little bit big but he's growing so quickly that they'll be perfect soon enough :)

Yarn Along

So now I'm currently without a knitting project :(

I can't decide what to make next! Someone was knitting up a great snake which would be perfect for my little guy, then there were those adorable little gnomes and then of course there is always the adorable Milo vest that everyone is making *grin*.

Having a few days after finishing the gloves did give me enough time to finish my book, Room by Emma Donoghue. I devoured it in two days! It was such a riveting book of the kidnapping of a young girl at the age of 19 and the son she gave birth to while living in captivity in an 11x11 room. Dark but oh so good!

I apologize to everyone that left comments last week and I haven't had a chance to get back to you :( We just had an insanely crazy week and I've been thinking of each of you and am going to do my darndest to make it to all of you this time!! Plus I need to scope out all your projects and books so I can figure out what to knit next *grin*.

Hugs,
Rosina

Still in love with those gloves, Rosina! I hadn't even thought of the difficulty of sizing more accurately than with mittens. Phew, way to go!
And why did you have to remind me of Milo?? ;) My head is already spinning with new projects I want to launch into!

Kaylana said...

Yeah for finished projects!!
Enjoy the breather before you dive into another. :-)
I, too, am getting in some reading between projects. Time to catch up with that.
Congrats on finishing with flair!

I really really love that yarn. I used a similar in my bag, the flecks are what make it sooo cool!! So much excitement when starting a new project yes?

Sarah said...

GREAT job on the gloves! They look so warm =) I look forward to seeing what you decide to work on next.

The gloves are wonderful, I love the color of the yarn and they look really warm too!

Gretchen R said...

I'm so in awe of your gloves. Fantastic job! I'd say go for the milo vest, but I've been eyeing those gnomes as well!

Anke said...

Your gloves turned out great! I've never even tried to knit gloves, don't know why, but I find them somewhat intimidating...

Great looking gloves!!! And I've been considering a Milo vest too... :)

Sandra said...

Great gloves :)

I will have to look into that book, sounds like something I would enjoy.

Jarka said...

it always feels so great to be free to choose new projects :) ...that book sounds really interesting :)

Jess said...

Hooray for gloves! Those look terrific!

Meredith said...

Love the gloves, they are SO great!! I have heard the book is great too, hmm, so little time....

KnitterMama said...

The gloves are perfect! Wow!

Heidi said...

The gloves turned out great, Rosina! Yay! Picking the next project is a happy kind of trouble, isn't it?

Elizabeth said...

I just love those gloves. And a little big on a growing boy is always a good thing. The books sound like it would be hard to put down, always wanting to know what's next. Good luck finding a new project. That's always fun.

Blessings, Elizabeth

I have never attempted gloves before! Yours look absolutly beautiful. What a lucky boy you have :)

Nadja said...

I am still way too intimidated by gloves! Maybe one day...!

I have been longing to do a Milo vest (seems everyone has done one!), but am waiting to purchase "the right yarn".
