My First Commission

I completed my first commission this week which was very exciting! It was some hats knitted in some gorgeous Alpaca wool. They were so lovely and soft, my mum has now actually put in an order for one so it looks like I will be spending my earnings on their wool! I should have just asked for my payment in wool J
Doing this commission has meant a mini break from my pattern designing but I was able to complete a rib stitch fingerless glove pattern which I have listed on Craftsy. I knitted it in Sirdar soft yarn which was so lovely to knit with although not great if you go wrong and need to undo your work; it was so soft it ended up knotting together! So if you knit with it make sure you get it right first time!! The colour I used also made a lovely metallic almost tweed effect! I am going to use this pattern now and work on an owl motif to incorporate in to it and also a matching hat . . . if you haven’t guessed I have a fondness for all things 'owly' J
