The Gift Train Keeps On Rolling

Holly's mittsThe work-in-progress spot on my knitting settee has begun to function more like a LIFO accounting system: last in, first out!

After finishing the last birthday gift, I realized there was no time to go back to my Sock Hop socks because of another impending birthday - this time for my physical therapist, Holly.

For the past 4 months, Holly has kneaded, messaged and (at times) cajoled my muscles and nerves into working like they're supposed to. If not for her, I wouldn't be knitting now. That is why I thought it fitting to make something that would warm the hands of my PT angel!


Less than 1.5 balls of Rowan Wool Cotton in shade 941 (Clear)
Addi size 3 US, 2-circular method
Pattern, "April May" courtesy of Cider Moon

Modifications? None, with the exception of the length. Mine are about 1.5 inches shorter.

Lurvely!! I can only hope that mine will even begin to stack up...

Although Mummy wondered aloud (or, at least, on IM) if perhaps I'm now an advanced knitter. I told her, surely not!!!

Very cute handwarmers. I really like that pattern. Thanks for the yarn, the Chevron scarf is coming along, but even in sportweight, this scarf is going to take forever! Yikes.
