I found this cute yarn, and had to get it (this was a while ago), and it inspired me to choose the yam for my glove swap on ravelry.com, without even knowing what my swapee might like, It all turned out well. Anyway, I finally got around to making a pair for me.
When I finished the first one I tried to wear it to bed, so that my arm that is always cold because it is out of the covers would be warm. I found it in the blankets in the morning, so I probably won't do that again. I finished the second one. I actually like them a lot, and am currently wearing them.
the pictures make them look a little more red than raspberry pink which I think they look like.
I am still working on the stockings, but am trying to decide between figuring out how to make fingerless gloves with a "sock monkey" twist, or make red white and blue socks, or a brown purse, or maybe another pink felted purse..... decisions decisions....
