it's rather strange!

It must be my computer, this problem with blogger. The reason I think this is because I checked blogger from my laptop this morning and it has the same screen as it's always had, and it lets me click on icons above the 'posting' box. I wonder if I have a bug in my system:-(

I'm going to have my hubby look at it tonight. In the meantime I wanted to show a picture of my finished 'left hand' Almeara Glove. I am happy it's finished but not even looking forward to starting the second one! I am attaching the picture here by using my laptop, so hopefully you can see it.

It's only taken me a week to knit, so hopefully by this time next week I'll have a pair! And I can then get back to the Cleopatra Wrap, which is ALL for me (unlike the gloves, which I'm not sure are for me or will be gifted yet?)

Really lovely! Gloves are so tedious, but the reward is so great.

Computers can be funky from time to time.

But your knit is fab. Gotta love those cables.

Oh my goodness -- those are so gorgeous! Maybe someday I'll graduate to 'real knitter' status like you -- ya think?
I have to say I took the easy way out on the lettuce/spinach/mint etc. planting. I'd love to have lovely raised beds (like Jamie Oliver) but don't, so I just planted a few pots to put on the patio. I'm just not up to trying to dig out huge patches of bermuda grass for my little 'potager' ;-).

Denise, the finished glove looks amazing. Really. The detail is only exquisite, I can understand why you aren't too keen on starting the other glove right away. Must be daunting but when the finished product looks that good, well you'll just have to hurry and finish. :)

what a lovely first glove - it looks very complicated so well done you for having the guts to tackle it. I knew you could do it!

Lisa said...
