Way back in early September I splurged and bought a skein of Haute Knit Yarn in the Haunted Forest colorway from a destash sale. The yarn was so pretty and it was a great price – I couldn’t resist. It was also my very first skein of yarn that I purchased that wasn’t from a big box store.
I knew I wanted to make something for myself that was “me” and after some online hunting, I found a free pattern for fingerless gloves that I loved and I got started right away.
Look at the texture on them! *swoon* They crochet up flat and you have to seam the edges together and then add the buttons. I had both gloves crocheted up in 2 days! Since I didn’t have any buttons that I thought looked just right with them, I set them aside. And they collected dust.
And a bit more dust…
I finally picked them back up 3 days ago (1/13/17) and had them finished within an hour. It took me almost 4 months to finish that last little bit of work to be able to call them completed!?! WHAAA?!? Anyhow, they are all done now and I absolutely love them and the yarn!
I really need to get my hands on more of that yarn. It was an older skein of sock weight yarn so I’m not sure about the base it’s on. I’d LOVE more of this colorway or any deeply saturated jewel tones if anyone has some that’s sitting in their stash that they’d be interested in selling. Just sayin’. LOL It’s not like I’m on a craft supply diet or anything like that. 😉
Anyhow, it feels great to have an item on my #2017FALQ1 list complete!
