Tribute to New Orleans


I live in New Hampshire but my heart lives in New Orleans. Most of my knitting has been done for others. I tend to be a "process" knitter and once I'm done knitting something I don't seem to have much of an emotional attachment to it and I'm happy to gift it to someone who will love it. Until I saw the pattern for these fingerless gloves. They are so feminine and so delicate and then when I saw the name "Breakfast at The Cafe du Monde" Fingerless Gloves...I knew I had to knit them for me. One is complete sans the French silk ribbon to be woven into the eyelet trim and the second is now on the needles. So far, I'm loving them and the one that's finished is getting a lot of attention at the library where my knitting group meets. I *might* have enough yarn left to make another pair...

Next month my DH and I will be joining some friends for a mini-vacation at a resort/casino. We are going to be living large with a fancy suite, reservations for dinners, plenty of gambling, show tickets and a day at the spa for the ladies. These lovely gloves will be worn proudly with my "dress-up" clothes when we step out Friday or Saturday night! Ooo-la-la, indeed!

    Aren't they gorgeous?! Hand Jive Knits sells the pattern. It's a mere $5.00 for all that femininity! The level says "Advanced...but you're worth it" isn't that adorable?? I haven't found them to be terribly difficult altho' the start is very fussy. I'm using KnitPicks Palette in Blush and Ash.

    Oh, thanks a bunch. You can tell I am a bit late with this comment - somehow your link in my favorites disappeared! But, I'm back!
