I only taught myself to crochet a couple of weeks ago, but I'm already so excited by it - I'm building up a library of projects for the future! These gloves were my second ever project (first was a peg bag - boring!) which I finished yesterday, and being able to wear something on the second day after I started making it was an incredible feeling! (I'm used to doing things like papercutting and needlefelting - fun, satisfying, but not great for wearable crafts...
It's hard taking pictures of fingerless gloves that actually look like anything!
I wrote about them with more pics on this blogpost http://landofbreadandhoney.wordpress.com/2012/08/06/the-big-reveal-fingerless-gloves/
Now I'm planning to start on a baby blanket - my SIL is due at the beginning of September. Any recommendations for patterns / yarns (UK based)?
