I finished a pair of gloves in Hubbert Farms 85%Alpaca/15%Finnwool blend yarn.
These are for a friend but I think I will make myself a pair too.
My second Ene's Scarf is in the works with my 50%Silk/50% Merino blend from the Knitter's Fair.
I have long admired these Sanquhar Scottish gloves. A fellow Raveler in the UK was kind enough to send me the pattern books from the Rural Women's Scottish Institute.There are 4 patterns in all. I have started a pair (pic below)from a pattern I already had using my Satakieli yarn and DyakCraft double points. So far I am really liking them. They are smooth and sturdy needles, which is perfect for my small gauge tight knitting style.Another trade for fibre and yarn with a fellow Ontario Raveler below.
That's Treenway Silk's laceweight 45%Yak/55%Silk yarn. Gorgeous.
For the fibre part of the trade she sent me 1/2 LB of this luscious NZ Polwarth. It's almost a Rose Grey colour which is my favourite. Ravelry is a fantastic place to do trades!Next Wednesday, DH and I are leaving for Netherlands to visit family (twin grandsons). We will be staying until end of October so I am hoping to get a chance to visit De Afstap in Amsterdam.
They stock alot of Rowan yarns. See you next month :-)
