First, we had an amazing time in New York. Thank you so much for your suggestions! I’m still catching up a little, so a full New York post is coming tomorrow.
In the meantime, here’s a status update on the moose gloves. I did not get them finished for L’s birthday. In fact, I didn’t even bring them to New York, so on his birthday there was only one hand finished, and it was missing all its digits. Oh well. I buckled down this weekend and managed to be both social (CanLit Knit met yesterday and is still going strong), watch the entire second season of Downton Abbey, and knit the entire second hand. Where did all that time come from?
I’m a little puzzled as to why the moose look so different (is it just me, or is the one on the right older looking?), but overall I’m pleased. I’m excited to see them blocked, with fingers and thumbs, so that’s my project for this week. Ideally, I’d like to get them to L on Thursday, which would be one week late, but all in all not so bad; it’s more likely I’ll need another weekend to get them tidied away, though. I will keep you posted!
I hope you all had lovely weekends and tomorrow let me tell you about New York.
Love those meeces. Very striking.
These are looking great! Can’t wait to see them finished. I’m curious as to how hard it is to do the fingers for gloves… I’ve always been intimidated!
Maybe it’s the angle of the shot, but the one on the right has a more distinguished looking beard. That could age anyone. 🙂 Those are gorgeous and somehow perfect for knitting while immersed in the finery of Downton Abbey.
