Finished.... and only $6!

I finally finished up my Almeara gloves this morning. It took a little longer than I expected but not surprising when I actually knit a tank in between gloves!


Good news ..... these little beauties only cost me $6! The yarn is ' I Love This Wool' from Hobby Lobby. I bougth 2 skeins but only needed one (actually only used about 3/4).

Bad news . . . . I think our winter is already over, it's forecast to be in the 80's ALL week, so these little beauties will have to be put away until it's cold enough to wear them. I did wonder if I should 'gift' these or not but I made a decision - they're mine ;-) All mine!

Nicely done! I still haven't blogged about mine, I should do that. :o) At least they'll be all ready for the fall, right?

How did you enjoy the knit?

Beautiful! If you are anything like me, you will pack these away, forget about them, and then have a really nice surprise come fall:)
