Tapestry mitts

The yarn: Rowan Tapestry, 70 percent wool, 30 percent soybean protein fiber
The pattern: Fetching by Cheryl Naimath, from Knitty's Summer '06 issue
I decided to live dangerously and skip the gauge swatch, even though I couldn't find my size 6 doublepoints and am using the size 7 set instead. Precise fit isn't an issue this time since my gift list includes persons with a wide range of hand sizes.
It's such a joy to be knitting again.
P.S. - The funky keyboard in the photo is my contoured Kinesis, an ergonomic keyboard I purchased in 1993. It still works great after 13 years of heavy use and abuse. (The curve in the base at the center isn't really a curve, though. It's my head shadow.)

That's a fun pattern to knit. And, what a beautiful color of blue.
I'm sure you'll get OOh's and AAAH's from the recipient!

That yarn is stunning!

I have a funky keyboard too. Mine's from Microsoft and I've moved it from computer to computer for almost as long as you've had yours. It's spoiled me though so I hate typing on a regular rectangular keyboard--it slows me down and I make a lot more mistakes.

I need to knit that pattern too, but I'm sure mine will end up being on a lesser yarn. The one you chose is lovely!

How do you like Tapestry? I have some of it but haven't knit with it yet and now there's a new color I want. I'm trying to convince myself that I can't buy the new color until I use some of the old stuff but I think I'm losing the arguement.

Your yarn is beautiful. The project is sure to be a hit.

Dallas - The Tapestry feels wonderful in the hand, very soft, so I'm sure it'll be comfy. I like the gradual color graduations I'm getting, too.

Nancy - I'm terrible with regular keyboards, too.
