I started out doing some fingerless mitts from Weekend Knitting in leftover Cashmerino superchunky. They were ridiculously easy, and I decided that such a lovely shade of red would be perfect for a socialist-leaning friend of mine.

I grabbed some black yarn and stitched a hammer on one and a sickle on the other. I suck at sewing, so I'm not sure it's clear what they are. But we'll know. Thanks to my lovely friend pauline who agreed to model them before they get mailed.

Let me know what you think!!

Cute!  You should wrap them in a communist-style propaganda poster before you mail them....Just a thought.

Well done!

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.

Cool! Great job, too. I consider myself a socialist of sorts, myself (or maybe I just want to do the opposite of whatever George Bush is doing  Wink). And yes your friend is very pretty, prettier than Sandra Bullock, I'd say.
