I Am Super Ninja!



I've been wanting to make a pair of fingerless gloves since last winter. Lucky for me, I found the greatest pattern and yarn from Leethal. And double lucky, she lives in my town!

I bought a knit mitt kit with recycled yarn that was retrieved from a sweater and then dyed. They are a super quick knit and as you can see, I've already worn them in from wearing them practically every day.

There is so much more than yarn at Leethal, she sews and prints many wonderful things. I bought Denny a button up shirt that was "made new" with a cool block print camera design. I just love the totally reasonable, totally unique things I found. You can follow Lee on her blog called dostuff!

Cracking me up this morning Sally! I've always wanted to know how to knit. I played with my Mom this week and now I must bow down to you. It is much harder than crochetting.

These are awesome!

Cute! You look very ninja indeed. I have a pair of fingerless gloves that I love but a certain 5 year old boy always seems to be wearing them! My favorite pattern is http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html
I love that they are made out of recycled yarn and quick is always a bonus too!
