21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: RM's Hand Springs Fingerless Gloves - Free Knitting Pattern Available on: December 01, 2008 10:38:03 AM
Thanks! The color is actually dark, like the last photo. The sunlight is washing them out in the top two.

22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / RM's Hand Springs Fingerless Gloves - Free Knitting Pattern Link Available on: December 01, 2008 09:02:37 AM
HERE on my Craft Blog is the link to a free downloadable PDF of these mitts. The pattern is also in Ravelry.com under Hand Springs Fingerless Mitts.

This is the first time I've ever written out instructions, but the seven test knitters and proof readers say it is a good pattern, so I'll trust them.  Kiss
Hope you enjoy it! (better photos on my next pair.)

Oooo...what fun pouches! I especially love the gumball one and the game pieces.

Thanks! It looks a little more 'relaxed' now that I've washed it a few times. The linen, of course, doesn't really stay crisp and gets softer when you wash it. But it's still my favorite hat and looks nice and broken in.

Way to recycle! And your images are just great.

There are two ways to do them, actually.  Get a package of unused lollipop sticks, found in the cake decorating section, a small bag of mini-marshmallows and stick one of the marshmallows on each end of the sticks. Dip and swirl the marshmallows up to about half-way in either melted butterscotch morsels, or white chocolate (almond bark will do) tinted with Wilton's icing paste dyes to be the color of ear wax. (a lot of yellow and a little red, which is what I used, or an orange colored icing dye would work.)

They kids were really grossed out and loved them!

I found the recipe for the Swabs on-line. So cute! But I added the packaging idea. It reads: Swabs...Now with more ear wax!

The 'Rodent Surprise' cookies were my idea. Dip one side of the cookie (Oreos here) in white chocolate and sprinkle on chocolate sprinkles to look like mouse droppings.

Thanks for looking!

These looked better on the platter.

Dip the pretzels in white chocolate or almond bark.

Arrange 5 (and a half for the thumb) and pipe more white chocolate in the center. (four fingers look too crowded...so it's a three-fingered skeleton.)

I think this is my own idea. At least I didn't see these in my search for Halloween treats on-line anywhere.

At Thanksgiving, you can change it to milk or dark chocolate for the body, legs and feet (break the pretzels 2/3 of the way down and position for feet) and tint some white chocolate in different colors for the feathers if you want to create turkeys.

Thanks for looking!
