21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Convertable Mittens on: April 22, 2014 06:10:48 AM
Thank you!

It was about $22 for one hank, which is about the upper limit of my price range.  Not as bad as a $47 hank of cashmere, but still higher end.  You can get alpaca wool blends, which aren't quite as nice, but a lot less money.  This one is half alpaca half sheep's wool, but cheaper: http://www.yarn.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/categoryID/02AC21B4-AE19-4896-9562-69EC40F72FC5/productID/6B3ECCF6-23F3-4F43-BC04-FF76BE43656C/

Thanks!  It was a pretty easy pattern, these were my first pair of gloves/mittens and I didn't have any problems figuring it out.  I was a little confused reading ahead, but once I got there it made sense.

They're 100% baby alpaca, and so soft!  I started these last month in an attempt to make winter end before I finished.  I wore them once a few days ago though!

I think the only reason I thought about knitting anything for them is so I'd have an excuse to buy yarn! Cheesy maybe I should just do what one of the grandmas does which is just make things she likes to make and just pass them out.

We gave everyone pictures of us a few years ago, if we had kids I'd probably do that more often, but we pretty much look the same as we did in 2008!

Maybe I should just send some handmade cards, they're easy to make and cheap to mail!  Mailing stuff is another issue, since everyone lives in different states, I never know who will be there until a couple weeks before.  Since I work retail, if I'm not done by October it's not happening.  The potholder idea might be good too.

I have a somewhat strained relationship with some of my in-laws, but I still feel somewhat obligated to give them something at Christmas time.  I found some yarn on sale and was thinking about making mittens or hats because they would be cheap, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much time on them.  I don't really have a lot of money to spend either, or I could just go the impersonal gift card route.  I'm looking at giving gifts to my husband's two grandmothers and four aunts, two of whom are married.  I've decided not to make anything for his father, as we aren't on speaking terms.

  I know I have a lot of time, but making several things will take time.   Undecided

Nice!  I love the texture.  It must have taken you forever to fold all those fortune tellers.

When after a trip to Joanns you discover your new purchases take up the last remaining space in your craft supply closet.  You then turn to your husband and say "Dear, it's time to move."

This is fantastic!  You did a nice job of solving the problem I always have where nice coats aren't warm enough, and warm coats are ugly.

Thank you!

It's lace with ribbon woven through it on the front.  I took a close up picture in daylight to show it better, my phone doesn't do well with the low light levels we have at night.

And here's an awkward selfie!
