Some Yarn And Something Finished

These are the fingerless mittens that I made for Megan's friend in red and black as requested. I hope I matched up the striping pretty closely. When using the self striping yarn you have to make sure you try and start at the same place in the striping as you did the first mitten otherwise it wouldnt look like they went together. I discovered that when I started and crossed my fingers it would look close at the end. What do you think?

I finally got a ball of that Vanna's Choice yarn last week. I love the colour. Im not sure what Im going to make with it yet. If I like how it turns out I will definitely buy more of it. I have been wanting to make a flap hat for this winter especially for shovelling. This colour would go with everything and the yarn is really soft so I think I might do that.

I LOVE your fingerless mitts! I made my first pair (but they look a little chunky), and my sister has requested red and black... can I ask what type of yarn you used? Great job!

I always save yarn labels for new yarn that I use so I was able to find the label for what I used on those fingerless mitts. It was Bernat Super Stripes. Its a boucle yarn. I found it at Walmart.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
