FO Friday.......A Last Minute Gift.

Hello there, Happy Friday everyone, I'm back today with a FO (finished object), which I will be sharing on Tami's blog, it will be the first time I've played along with FO Friday's.

My friend asked me on Wednesday night, if I would have time to make some fingerless gloves for her MIL, before Christmas, she isn't very well and is feeling the cold, at the moment. I was really struggling for time so had to say no, yesterday though when I had five minutes, I thought I would look on Ravelry, just to see if there was a quick, easy pattern and if I had suitable yarn.That's when I found the pattern for these gloves, they were perfect, I had the yarn and were really quick to crochet.

The pattern is called Lacy Fingerless Gloves by Christie Pruitt, I started them late last night and finished them this morning. I love the pattern so will be making more, I'm so glad I looked for some and got them finished, I'm sure she will love them.I used Rowan Cashsoft 4ply, which is so soft and warm but lightweight too, and hook size 3.50mm.

If you want to see other FO's, head over to Tami's and take a look.

I probably won't have time to do another post so I would like to thank everyone who visits my little blog, I really appreciate all your kind comments that you take the time to leave, so thank you again.

I'd like to wish you and all your family, a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Peaceful New Year.

Very pretty. I love a little something like that - soft, lacy and warm! What a lovely gift.

Oh, these are really nice... I think I'll give them a try with the leftover Baby Cashmerino in my stash. And to you a very merry Christmas, Deb!

That's very sweet to have squeezed in your friends request (especially at such short notice!) and I'm sure she'll be thrilled to bits. I like the colour you picked too :)
