I was so pleased I'd made it for her.
She is into knitting and crochet, sewing and card making, so in short, she loves to craft BUT she said because of that no one ever makes her anything, so she was thrilled to get this.
She loved the basket weave chunkiness of it and said it was lovely and neat.
So all is good!!
Here's something I wanted to ask others who knit and crochet ... do you check your gauge?
Now I have to admit that's something I NEVER do!!!
Not for anything. So I'm curious as to whether anyone else does. And if you do, do you think it's worth it? Does it make any difference??
I now have a lovely pair of chunky warm fingerless gloves. I'm so pleased with these and I love the little strap and button detail to make them look pretty still, even though they're so chunky!!
I used a glass button with rainbow colour's in it and I think it sets the dark purple off beautifully.
So I'm currently working on a scarf or cowl. It's not definite what it's going to be actually as I've unravelled it three times already!!
I just start something and then decide it's not quite what I want ... hope I get it finished soon as I have other things I'm itching to get on with.
