Okay, I have finished (am blocking) my clapotis (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/IM000496.jpg) and matching hat (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/IM000507.jpg) and finally decided how I was going to do the cuff on the fingerless gloves & knitted it & seamed them & did a small amt of 1x1 ribbing last night and hope to finish them today so I can wear the ensemble tomorrow for Thanksgiving :D So....I mush HURRY to finish.................. :waving:

I tried, but I was WAY OFF starting these @ the same color point with this colorway, but I have now decided to try to stop worrying about it :shock: .... hope it works...LOL, I'm hinky about things like that, but it's too late to turn back now :rollseyes:

FYI, my camera is acting wonky & colors do actually match my clapotis BUT I'm askeered my camera is dying :shock: !! And I have knitting stuff on my Christmas list, not some dumb ole' camera :rollseyes: !

Everything is soooooooooooooooo pretty! Make sure you have Lonnie take a picture of you wearing it all tomorrow so we can see.

I actually like it when the self coloring stuff is not so identical.

Thanks everyone :D ! When I finish the gloves I am going to knit "Backyard Leaves" scarf from the book "Scarf Style" and then, of course, try to fashion a hat & fingerless gloves to go with ;)

Rebecca,
I bet these sets will turn into your trademark style. How will you ever be able to choose which ensemble to wear??
They are gor-geeeeeeee-ous. :heart:

Aren't you sweet ;) ! I have definitely decided that with each scarf there will be matching hat & fingerless gloves..one day, maybe even gloves, who knows?! LOL, you are so right, tho, I recently knit Branching Out Scarf (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/IM000373.jpg) and a hat (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2005%20a%20few%20knitting%20projects/IM000447.jpg) to match and I told my husband today when I was working on my gloves that I knew I was going to have to order the yarn for the gloves :roflhard: :rofling: !! Well, at least I've not done socks for all of them...although :thinking: I do have a box of sock yarn awaiting my finishing this long project list so I can begin the long awaited Sock Sabbatical ;)

Thanks, Carmell :D You are so sweet & you knit such beautiful projects :heart: It's funny, we all want to learn all there is about knitting right away, gosh, I learn something new everyday :shock: LOL, when I 1st began knitting last year I just thought it was fooling around with a couple of sticks...I had NO IDEA that you could make such beautiful & wonderful things, there's so much that I want to learn..NOW..LOL, but that's not possible, so I, like everyone else will have to learn as time goes on ;)
Thanks again everyone, ya'll are so sweet :D I have the gloves finished & are drying & blocking now...I will take some photos tomorrow with my new camera that my :inlove: sweetie gave me :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

I finally got around to taking the pictures of the finished fingerless gloves and hat with my new camera :D
I just did a simple lace on the arms rather than mimicing the dropped sts like in the clapotis and hat...I'm just not young enough to pull that off :roflhard: :rofling: ;)
