Hey :waving:
I am continuing in the "A Touch of Whimsy" series with the fingerless gloves that go with the hat (http://whimsicalknittingdesigns.blogspot.com/2006/10/touch-of-whimsy-hat-pattern.html) and scarf (http://whimsicalknittingdesigns.blogspot.com/2006/10/touch-of-whimsy-scarf-pattern.html).
This was a fun and quick knit. I thought about carrying the pattern all over the glove, but decided against it because, well, I like my fingerless gloves to be in st st, so the cuff is the only place with the cable and lace pattern. I guesttimate that these took around 1/2 hank of Malabrigo. I used sizes 7 and 5 circs (I use the 2 circ method).
I still intend to do the socks to match, but I'm thinking they will have to wait until either Lacevember or the shawl that I hope to knit for Lacevember are done :wink:
I will have the pattern available on my blog later today.

Very nice! A person will be able to be decked out entirely in Whimsy! Will we be seeing the Touch of Whimsy belt, the Touch of Whimsy leg warmers. Oooooh you know what would be cool...A Touch of Whimsy cardigan with this motif at the cuffs and around the waist or along the button band! Go for it, Rebecca!

LOL, I'm definitely stopping after the socks with this one :teehee: Although...a cardi sure would be pretty :wink:

Bravo Becka!

Oh, the lace would look awesome on that little pea coat baby cardi. (I can't remember the actual name.) That would be adorable.

Thanks, Pixy! I think I know the cardi you mentioned, I think it would look nice with the Whimsy addition!

Thanks, Cindy! I think it will be fun to be decked out in Whimsy, too! I hope to have the sock pattern by the end of the month, I would do it now, but I've just cast on for a shawl for Lacevember and I'm pretty much a monogamous knitter :wink:! I think the socks will be lots of fun!

Thank you so much, mks!

Thank you, one and all, you made my day :cheering:

Thanks so much! I have one more Whimsy to go with this series, the socks. I hope to have them by the end of the month.

All of your Whimsy items are pretty. I think I'd really like to make this hat, though. Ever since I cut off my hair, I've found myself needing more hats.

LOL, I love wearing hats! I know just what you mean about the short hair, too! My hair is shorter now than it has been in years and my head yearns for a hat to adorn it since there's no longer much hair :teehee:
