'How Much?'


Here's the first glove - finished. I'm so thrilled with it and it fits just like a glove. Surprising that really! I took it to school on Friday and was showing it around (only 2 fingers were done by then) One lady, who I felt should have known better, said it was lovely and if I had bought a pair like that in a shop, it would have cost me about £20. She really thought she was paying me a compliment. I tried to explain that it has actually cost me over £30 and that is without all the time involved. She was shocked - 'But why, you can buy gloves so cheaply?' I give up. I shall keep my woolly projects to myself from now on!
So have you seen the new Yarn Forward? It's great, loads of stuff in there that I want to knit as well as a very interesting article by Dee on how to Blog. You want to see where I'm knitting then do you Dee? Well so far today, I've knitted in the kitchen, dining room, bathroom, 2 of the bedrooms and the garden. The garden you've seen, but as for pictures of the rest, well you'll have to wait! (Unless of course you take me up on the Broadband and doughnuts offer!)
I'm now knitting flowers again. Yes, I know, I know, I should really be doing the other glove, but it's the whole casting on something different thing again. The WIP pile continues to grow. If only the family didn't need to eat or wear clothes (especially the ironed sort) I'd be fine...

The glove is FANTASTIC!

ps: you can tell the lady at school that if you were to be knitting your glove in America, it would be costing $60. Worth every single cent, I'd say :)

my goodness...that work is so intricate...some people just don't get it do they? A handknitted garmet is full of love, the yarn is (on the whole)far superior to anything you can buy in a cheap boring shop....handknitting is priceless, not something I'd do for anybody i didn't love...
