i just finished this test knit for the Tideland fingerless mitts by londonleo:
this is a beautiful pattern, to be released soon (i'll post when they're released). i used CEY Alpaca Sox and i love this color. it suits my blue and orange obsession (which has kind of evolved into red and blue) although i like it with the army green too.
if i make this pattern again, i may adjust where i start the thumb gusset, as i have long fingers and i like my mitts to cover them more. however, i think where these fall probably looks nicer.
i have a gauge problem and because my gauge tightens as i go along, stop paying attention, start knitting faster, i overcompensated on the right mitt and it's actually a bit looser.
my other issue? it took over 60 pictures before i could get the semi-decent ones above (that's sort of a lie, the one just above is the first picture i took). is that normal? i mean, for those of us who aren't photographers and have a little point-and-shoot with a self-timer? i often don't blog because i don't have the patience to get a good picture.
