Two Finished Projects

These fingerless gloves with caps were finished just in time for this last bout of cold Southern California weather.





Two people have noticed them and asked me if I would knit a pair for them--and they offered to pay me.

This makes me a bit nervous.  It's not that I don't think I can knit them; it's that I want to make sure the buyer is happy with my product and satisfied with the price.  Have any of you, my dear readers, had this same situation?  How do you handle it?



Here is the nine month sweater and cap set I knitted for the little man who accompanies his mama to my Tuesday morning Bible Study.




















Simple Fair Isle patterning adds so much to a plain sweater.

That little sweater and cap is so sweet! Love it. Those fingerless gloves are great for anyone driving and using their smart phones!!

Your knitting is awesome to me, Linda! If you would enjoy knitting the gloves for someone who will pay you for your efforts, I hope you will give yourself permission to enjoy the whole process. I treasure handmade projects and can imagine your buyers will too.

Beautiful, Linda! I love the fingerless gloves. And you're right - that lovely pattern on the sweater really adds a special touch. I always love seeing your knitting creations!

Nice to see your 'winglets'. That's what we call them. I like making them, except we always have to make two...
I have just been learning the Fair isle pattern. I made a headband. I have some completed projects I will be revealing after Christmas.

That sweater and cap are gorgeous! I love brown and blue together. And your fingerless gloves are beautiful too (your favorite color!). I think you worry too much because everything you knit is perfectly done.
