Gloves and Giveaways

I'm excited to announce that I'll be hosting my first ever giveaway, courtesy of Sew Brunswick and Did You Make That?'s Pattern Pyramid Giveaway. As the winner of Sew Brunswick's leg of the giveaway, I will be receiving four patterns and passing three of them along to another lucky recipient. Thanks Karen and Leith! More details to come!

Now on to the gloves... Here are my finished Ringwood Gloves that are en route to my sister-in-law as we speak. Maybe it was the combination of steamy iron and drippy sweat that clued me in, but as I was blocking them, I realized the ridiculousness of sending someone gloves in this 100 degree heat. I got a little twinge of self-consciousness, but I'm pretty sure she'll be tickled to get them nonetheless. I mean, winter's coming, right? For something to enjoy in the meantime, I sent her a copy of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks .

The details:
Pattern: Ringwood by Rebecca Blair
Yarn: Manos Del Uruguay Silk Blend in Rust
Notes: Easy to follow pattern for a fairly quick knit. True to the pattern notes, the Ringwood stitch has a nice stretch to it that produces a close fitting glove.  The silkiness of the silk was especially noticeable after I blocked them. I would love to make a pair of these for myself!
