Knitting for a knitter

I made these spring glovelies for my pal KW at work who has been generously making all manner of scarves (hockey, dr. who) and baby blankets (She has an admirably high tolerance for garter stitch). I set about to making her a pair of quick fingerless gloves for the spring and somehow summer snuck up on me.

The details
Pattern: Spring glovelies (basically a tube with a thumb)
Yarn: Drops Alpaca
Needles: 2.5 mm

Oh and the mug - isn't it awesome? Snapped up in Liverpool but also available online here at the amazing Merchant & Mills.

Gorgeous gloves and killer mug. Might just have to get myself one! Your photos are so beautiful and inspiring! Thanks Ms. TK!

You're the greatest. I love them.

The nice thing about garter is that it's mindless and repetitive enough for me to do while watching TV, zoning out while listening to something or killing time on the subway. (And it's almost impossible for a novice like me to screw up.) I do think I'll attempt to get more adventurous — as soon as I've knocked another Doctor Who scarf and hockey scarf (both in progress) out of the way.

Thanks again. They're fantastic. :)

Knitters are the all time best people to knit for- aren't they? So pretty!

LOVE the mug! and the mitts. lucky kw. i always get a little nervous and have a little pang of anxiety when knitting for someone who knits, or sewing for someone who sews. i pay extra attention to the details, because i just know they will too. your, as always, looks perfect.
