Fuzzy hands

The last of the quick knit Xmas pressies for now. These are the Picot Edged Gauntlets from the 1st issue of knit.1 magazine, knitted in 60g of stash mohair mix yarn (don't worry, the halo is scheduled to slip very soon).

They were extremely quick to knit - about 1 evening each, plus a little to seam them.

They're very warm as the fuzzy mohair part has gravitated to the reverse side of the stocking stitch - i.e. next to the skin! Of course I planned it that way.. ;-)

I do hope the intended recipient will like them, otherwise I may well ask for them back..

Great minds must think alike! I have knitted the gauntlets and the neck warmer for No. 1 daughter and No. 2 daughter respectively and it looks like I may have to repeat them both as they were very popular.

Oh wow, those guantlets are great. I have that issue of K1 but they must have escaped my attention. Thanks for reminding me :)

I just got my paws on a copy of handknit holidays. The reason I mention this is that they have a pattern for a curly whirly scarf in it. The thing that really caught my attention was that they suggested using the scarf as a "ribbon" to tie up a larger present you are giving to the same recipient. I thought that was a pretty cool idea.
