I had started this pair of gloves in 2000 but after completing the first, I was hit with the second glove syndrome and the WIP(work in progress) went into hibernation. Finally, I got these out this year and listed as WIP on my raverly projects. Seeing these day in and day out, gave me the required motivation and I finally finished them.
The pattern is from a burda crochet lace magazine. I did it in simple black sewing thread with 0.6mm hook. The black color and it being thread, made this project a little hard for the eyes. However I still love the patten as much as I did seven years ago.
If I remember correctly, I had also started a pair in white. I will have to finish that as well if and when I find it.
As for spinning news, I am almost halfway through the roving and loving it.

final chart of second sock, so I had to substitute with another yarn. You can see the different yarn in the picture. These socks turned out quite good in the end. And along the way, I tried my hand at magic loop a.k.a. one sock on one circular needle and loved it. No more DPNs for sock knitting for me!
I plan to give them to my mom who has refused to try them on for now (too hot).

The other day, I was sewing some stuff. My sewing box and its contents were besides me on my work table. The little darling was going round the table, apparently busy playing with herself. So I thought, but she ever so slowly, zeroed in on the work table and took away my pincushion, successfully avoiding detection. To be more sure of not being caught, she crept into her toys' cupboard, camoflauging herself among the toys. Here I found her a few minutes later:

On another note, I was unable to view my blog or anyother blogspot blog for the last two days, because some exceptionally bright and intelligent authority in Pakistani goernment ordered the blanket order to block all blogspot sites. This is becoming a regular feature, happening every few months. However,thankfully it never lasts long.
