Pretty In Pink

I'm so excited that you might say that I'm tickled pink!! I've just finished designing my first pair of fingerless gloves, which I have named Pretty In Pink!! They are pictured here. I have 4 very nice people from the Fingerless Glove Fanatics group testing them for me. When they're finished, I will be putting it up for sale on Ravelry.

They are crocheted gloves done in Luster Sheen yarn. I love the way they turned out and I think that they're easy enough for any crocheter who can read a pattern to make. My testers will let me know if that's true or not.

I've posted pictures of them in several places and gotten a wonderful response, much bigger than I ever expected! I've just sent out the pattern today, and I can't wait to see how my testers do. They can use any yarn that's the same weight as the Luster Sheen I've used. I know one of them will also be using Luster Sheen.

Since we're talking pink here, and that makes me think of the Cancer Society. I hope you will check out the places I visit and pay a visit to the wonderful lady who is doing the walk for the society. It's a great cause, and her story will touch your heart I'm sure.

They definitely look like something Molly Ringwald would have worn in the movie! Great job, they're beautiful. Too bad I can't crochet to save my life...
