Knitting Slump

Hi there. I've been a bit distracted lately, so I haven't devoted much time to knitting or blogging. I guess I'm just a seasonal knitter after all. I did find a blueprint for my next project in a very risque knitting book. A bit too much for me, so I'm just going to wait to borrow a copy from the library, but they have a lovely armwarmers/opera gloves pattern.

Actually, I wanted wristwarmers, but this makes for a good starting point. I'm gonna use navy blue to match my scarf--though technically I made the scarf to match the really cool imaginary wristwarmer pattern in my head. It was originally inspired by the lace-up fingerless gloves pattern in Leigh Radford's "AlterKNITS" but that particular pattern seemed ...sloppier than what I really wanted. I just love the lace-up part.
