And now for something completely different...

more fingerless gloves. The second pair I've made for myself. I splurged, bought, Modella, a Laines Du Nord . It's a little bit poly, and a little bit viscose, and guessed it, kid mohair. These are 22.00 fingerless gloves. I've got a good little bit left to work into my blues collection. The little crochet piping is from some llama wool I purchased in Northern Wisconsin at least 10 years ago.

I have this seasonal desire to get a kitten when its cold and boring out. Sanity prevents me from adding anymore to our home, and the fact that my husband, a village fireman, would die if we had a call at our house and it was crawling with cats. There is a sort of implication by non-cat lovers that people with more than one cat are a little loony. Ha! Anyhow, in order to satisfy my need for a littel something furry, I made these gloves.

Next up on the needles are Montana Woolies lace socks. The pattern was a gift. The yarn was a gift. They will be practically free socks. Hmmmm, does that make my fingerless gloves really 11.00? In my mind it does.

Cute dog and cute gloves. I hadn't thought about furry gloves being a replacement for a furry kitten, but given my yearning for the latter, maybe I'd better get started on the former.

Very cool gloves!
Where in Northern Wi. did you find that yarn?

I love your pooch! What a loveable face!
