Stef has been busy!

Here is a pair of fingerless gloves Stefanie made for her mom. The pattern is Pink Sonata from Vogue Knitting's Fall 2008 issue. She made some adjustments. First, she left the flaps off because her mom just wanted the glove part. And she skipped the top of the thumb because it would just be silly to have fingerless gloves with a full thumb.

They are made from our Shepherd Sock yarn in 16ns Charcoal and 9ns Pewter.

Next up is a sock from Interweave's Favorite Socks book. This is Evelyn Clark's Retro Rib sock in Shepherd Sock.

And here is a close-up of the stitch pattern. (I can't figure out what the shadow in the bottom left is all about. I tried it from about a zillion angles and kept getting it. It has something to do with the flash. What exactly, I'm not sure.)

Last up are Stackable Cats from Mochimochi.

How cute are these? And how lucky is the four-year old that is getting them for his birthday? Yowsa!

I once made fingerless gloves for a guy friend out of your sock but with thumbs because he would keep his hands in his pockets with his thumbs sticking out trying to look cool waiting for the bus.

Oooh, great idea! I would have never thought of that.
