Rose Garden Fingerless Gloves

Here are the finished gloves in the  hand dyed, hand spun yarn mentioned in the previous posting, I am so pleased with how they have turned out and I love the colours in this yarn; to me the plum, rye and pink work so well together, they remind me of faded roses at the end of summer.

I have also been busy knitting up some long arm warmer style gloves in Stylecraft acrylic yarn, I don't know how these will turn out as I am making them up as I go along;

I picked the last of the tiny leeks from the allotment, they were planted too late in the year so didn't have a chance to grow much - I am sure they will taste ok- I think they are destined to become leeks and potatoes in a cheesy sauce!

Have a good week!
