Happy Friday!

I have 2 finished projects to share....the first are my gauntlets...when I made my Katniss inspired cowl last fall....I decided I needed a pair of gauntlets to wear with it...so I came up with these..

I'm going to love wearing these this fall!

I also finished my Vanilla Latte socks last night!..I absolutely adore this yarn, Knit One, Crochet Too Ty-Dye Socks..it is one of the softest most squooshy yarn I have used and these socks are very comfortable...again one sock is a smidge short, but not too bad...I also have to learn how to shape around the arch...I have hard feet for socks...

but I know I will wear these a lot...and I actually have enough yarn left over to make another pair...

Joining up with Fiber Arts Friday, Creative Friday, and FO Friday

The socks are charming, but the gauntlets look particularly warm and cozy, plus they're a great match to your Katniss cowl. Well done!

Well done for finishing those projects, the gauntlets are very cute and the socks look like something very yummy - if that makes sense ;)

I can see you are getting ready for fall! What are the temperatures like where you are over winter? The gauntlets are going to be so warm! I love how little yarn sock-making can take!

Yay for the socks. I've got my first skein of that sock yarn on the way, so it's great to hear that you like it. The gauntlets look like they'll be great this winter.

Two pairs out of one skein? That's amazing -- as are the socks. So cute.
