Day 3 of the Blog Hub Swap, and the shape and feel of my parcel indicated that today was yarn day *grins* And yes, I did give the parcel a squidge before I opened it! So, I won't keep you in suspense, here's what Tink picked out for me...
Candy Skein yarn *much grinning* I wanted to try some of this yarn for absolutely ages, but haven't bought any thanks to my stashbusting plans. Of course yarn received in swaps is totally allowed, so I was super excited that Tink sent me this! It's one of my favourite of Tami's colourways (although they're all gorgeous, so it's hard to choose!)
Talking of Tami... On to the Finished Objects (do you see what I did there? *laughs*) I have 2 to share today, both of which were submitted to Nerd Wars but both also happened to be projects I wanted to make anyway ;)
First up, my Impala Treads fingerless gloves (Impala is my team on Nerd Wars):
And a better picture of the colour, plus a close up of the pattern:
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Fez, kindly sent to me by Laura
Modifications: Made them longer to make the most of the gorgeous yarn!
Other: I love these! They're so warm and cosy, and had some interesting pattern details that I really enjoyed *smiles*
And project 2, my Demonic Omen Hat (name is again a Nerd Wars reference!):
Pattern: Hurricane Hat
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted left over from making boyfriend's hat
Modifications: Longer brim and shorter patterned section (mainly because I got the measurements the wrong way round *laughs*)
Other: Love this yarn, so squishy and soft!
It's Friday, you know what to do by now... Visit Tami's, Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Have a great weekend
