These are nowhere near as exciting as those brioche hats, but I made myself some fingerless mitts.  I live in a basement apartment that is absolutely FREEZING so these are a necessity.  I held two strands of yarn together, pale pink and chocolate brown for one pair(cheap acrylic - I'm trying to use up my stash so I can buy new nicer stuff!). 
And I made myself one in some orange merino wool but then promptly ran out... so I only have one. Someday I'll make it a mate.

Princess Jazz,

Those are totally cute!  I have pair of fingerless mitts that I love and wear all the time.  They've actually replaced my mittens in terms of winter hand-wear.

I love the pink and the brown. What a good idea!

Thanks for the compliments guys!

Cyn, I saw yours on your blog a long time ago - it was actually part of the reason why I decided to buy this book.  These fingerless mitts are my favourite thing I've made from it so far.

wow, I just saw the brioche hats that were posted last month and I've gotta say - GREAT JOB!!  I was considering knitting this pattern as a gift for my husband last winter and was totally intimidated by the pattern - it looked so hard and so confusing, I didn't even try it.  Maybe in the fall I will revisit it, now that I've seen your awesome finished hats...

i recently made the Pig-Tailed Dolly for a friend's little girl...
my daughter is 'modeling' it and wants one of her own. i found that it was really easy to make, but i didn't want to waste time knitting the doll and then the sweater...so i had to figure out how to make the doll with the sweater attached. it was a challenging problem, but i think it came out pretty well, and the girl loves it! i didn't have anything to stuff it with, so i used odds and ends from my yarn stash... Smiley
the pictures are a little dark, and for some reason i wanted to make the doll's face with grey yarn!



...the whole world is a narrow bridge, and the main thing is to have no fear at all...

I cant believe it took me this long to find this thread....!  here are my lil' handwarmers....well- one of them!  i absolutly love them.  they were knit with lambs pride worsted in green...i also used a very fine mohair with it...it gives such a soft look to them...cozy cozy! 

please dont mind my nubby lil' fingers!  teehee Embarrassed!

this book has so many beautious patterns...i need to get on them...i have a laptop tote and a tank to finish before i can dive back into this one...shucks. 

one more thing, i had yet to find a sweater that my husband would actually wear if i knit it...but behold a miracle has occurred...he wants one from this book!  so i think that it will be my first sweater....he might get it within the next five years...we will see!

i just finished the fluffy cami from this book, check it out on my blog (whisperingpine.blogspot.com)

Wow, that fluffy camisole came out beautifully.  I can't wait to knit mine.  I found some great rust colored mohair with flecks of sparkle for mine.  I actually like the color you used better than the one in the book. 

Well, I just started the unisex knockaround pullover for my boyfriend.  I'm using yarn from the berkshire sweater that I frogged from it's entirety.  i had made it last year for him for our 7th anniversary(the wool anniversary) and neither of us liked how the shoulders turned out, so i waited a good nine months (how long it took to forget how much time I put into making it) and then frogged the entire thing to make a more interesting pattern. Hopefully this one will turn out better, and just in time for our 8th anniversary!
