PixieDust Fingerless Gloves

I've really been hankering for some fingerless gloves, my hands get so cold sometimes, I thought they would be nice and cozy for around the house as well as out in the big wide world. I spun up a batch of my PixieDust blend in worsted weight and with 70 yards had exactly enough to finish! I wasn't too worried, I was knitting two at a time on a circular, so I knew if I needed to I could mix in another color of hand spun if I ran low.

I dyed up this luscious angora fiber in a pretty, soft pink. I'm planning to spin this and crochet a fluffy trim around the cuff. It's on the roster as soon as I finish a couple of secret projects.

Wishing you all the best of the season and on into the New Year! Blessings Friends!

  2. They are gorgeous and the soft pink at the cuff will be delicious! Yo always pick the best materials to use too.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  3. You should right up the pattern for these! I love em, especially since they use less than 100 yds! Your yarn is always my fav colors!

  4. They are beautiful. The pink cuff is going to be the perfect accent. Nice CHristmas gift to yourself! Good tidings.

  5. Ooo, pretty as always Melissa. Those gloves are super cute. Have a wonderful holiday and I'll maybe see you next week. Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

  6. Loving the color, many thanks for stopping by my blog, cheers from New Zealand, Marie

  7. Your gloves are beautiful. Glad you made them for you. I love my angora ones too. Your pattern looks almost the same as mine except for maybe K2, P2 on your cuffs.
    Merry Christmas Melissa to you and yours.

  8. I absolutely love the colour variations in your fingerless gloves, gorgeous!
