Veyla Mitts for Connie (Spiders Mitt Swap)

Veyla Mitts for Connie

Pattern: Veyla by Ysolda Teague [Ravelry]
Yarn: Louet Gems Fingering Weight (2 skeins) [Ravelry]
Needles: US 2 circular (magic loop)
Recipient: Connie!

Notes: Good luck defined: drawing a recipient in a knitwear swap who not only has fine taste and is a talented knitter and designer, but whose hands are preeeetty much the same size as your own. These are for the lovely and fortuitously small-handed Connie Chang Chinchio, my partner in the annual Spiders swap, which this year was for handwear. Connie couldn't make it to the swap this year :( so she couldn't model them, but these are on their way to her now.

I hadn't seen Veyla before, but came across it in Connie's "favorites" on Ravelry. It's a novel little pattern, with the cuff made separately and the glove picked up from the side of the lace panel. The Louet I have less love for - there were quite a few knots and even weak spots in the yarn, boo. That made for a ton of ends to weave in: shame on you, Louet! In any case, the result is delicate and ladylike, and nicely fitted - right up Connie's alley (if her designs are any indication). Connie, I hope you enjoy them!

And ps - here are the awesome mitts I received from Lisa. The yarn is SQUISHY and amazing. Thanks, Ms. D!

pps - there were SO many inspiring, lovely mitts at hand for the swap! Hard to pick a favorite, but I'm definitely adding these Fiddlehead Mittens that Maya made for Katy to the queue. I adore the b/w outer and brightly colored lining!

Veyla fingerless mitts are absolutely adorable and I'm not surprised they were in Connie's queue. They are just her style! Very pretty! Good work!

Oh I love them! I love fingerless mitts that go higher on your arm. That lacy pattern is so pretty. Perfect for a cropped jacket! Great job.

These are gorgeous and knit so beautifully, Jess! I can't wait to get them. And it's so funny that you noted that we have similarily sized hands because Lisa asked me to try on the mitts she made for you one Friday. I was convinced she was my swap mate :)

One remembers that today's life is not very cheap, nevertheless some people require cash for different issues and not every person gets big sums money. Thence to get good loan or just commercial loan should be a right way out.
