I finished something!

Actually I finished a few things this week - I know, take a moment to catch your breath, it's quite a shock isn't it - but today I am most happy skippy jumpy about my Biscotte Club handwarmers:

This is the very first time of all the clubs I've been in that I made the club yarn a priority and knit it up right away, and I like it: I'd love to keep this up but it would mean casting on the September club sock pattern and getting it done this month too if I'm to catch up. Not totally crazy when you figure how cute the socks are though.

It's difficult to take pictures of handwarmers with one hand.  I should really get the tripod and timer set up on my camera but - hello, valuable knitting time?

And... the palm.

And... the other hand.

They are super squishy and soft and I'm pretty sure the pattern will go to wide release in 2012.  I can definitely recommend it - it's such a cool construction and goes so fast!  I've already cast on for the matching hat...

which doesn't bode well for September's socks.  Oops.

Pattern: Flight of the Phoenix wristwarmers by Louise Robert
Yarn: Gobelin, 100% superwash merino, Biscotte et Cie

Have a good weekend folks - it's Thanksgiving here in Canada so you better believe you know what I'll be doing!

(yes: putting away patio furniture, raking leaves, and maybe even planting the groundcover I bought in June.)

Try getting your kids to do your FO shots with you - you might be surprised how good they get at doing it!

Happy Long Weekend!

Love it! Is there a pattern available?

Madhat, it's an exclusive club pattern from Biscotte et Cie, but I expect Louise will make it available in the new year. It's such a great project!
