A secret project... shhhh...

So what have I been up to since I finished my Ditto sweater?

I've been working on a pair of Cheryl Niamath's Dashing Fingerless Gloves for for my bff, Theresa's birthday. She hates her birthday. She hates when people buy her stuff, especially personal things. She's probably going to be totally pissed off at me for doing this, but I'm taking a chance anyway. Black is her favorite accessory color. Maybe she'll give me a pass.

I made these using the recommended Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran, which is beautiful. My only complaint is that the yarn appears to be magnetized for my pug's white fur. My God, I've already spent hours pulling off dog hair and lint!

Another complaint, but not about the yarn: these things look MUCH better on your hand than off. In fact, laying flat, I don't think they look like anything! But on, they're very pretty and practical. I figure Theresa can use them at work. She's always cold and with these, she can keep typing.

I hope she likes them. If not, Theresa can give them to one of her gazillion sisters or to a homeless person or even sell them on Etsy. Don't care. It's the thought that counts... let's just hope she remembers that!
