I used "A Verb for Keeping Warm" light blue , alpaca/silk blend in a sport weight.

I used a 4.5 mm hook- which is a little larger than what might be used ordinarily for this weight of yarn. The result is a light and delicate weave that has a lot of stretch to it.

Ok - I had posted a deeply flawed pattern for these fingerless gloves ( but FREE!) - my apologies to anyone who tried it!!!

A Verb For keeping Warm

How Lucky I am..... My studio is located in the same building as a "Verb For Keeping Warm".

These ladies have the most delectable
yarns for sale. They hand dye it all - using only natural dyes. The colors are exquisite.
I often see the fibers hanging out to dry - Such a beautiful sight to see!!

This is a hat crocheted entirely using their yarns.
