My new favorite things...

A new, big basil plant gifted from my in-laws last weekend, and my finished, fingerless Fetching gloves!


As I haven't already beat the dead horse into the ground the pattern is of course from knotty and I used the recommended Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. And yes, I managed to make the pair from one ball, there wasn't a ton of yarn left over but I don't see running into a problem when I make more and more of these in the future. Serious, I liked knitting these almost as much as I like wearing them. Fast, easy and cool as all heck if you ask me. As soon as it's cool enough to wear them here without sweaty palms, I will be wearing these babies a lot!

P.S. There's a new button in the sidebar for the Punk Rock Gift Exchange which is something I am very psyched about. Do you knit? Are you punk rock? Do you promise to be a good pal? Go sign up!

Very cute gloves.

Don't let the basil go to seed. It gets kind of stinky if it does.

Was it baby cash?
