Today's eye candy
Who needs Sports Illustrated? We knitters have our own version of cheesecake. Becky knit these Transition Gloves using a stranded color technique (fair isle) in two colors of Shibui sock yarn.
Becky says these gloves are a great choice for a beginning fair isle knitter: the scattered color changes look slightly random (they actually aren't). So an occasional misplaced stitch isn't a glaring error, which can be the case with highly geometric patterns.
We carry the yarn & the pattern, though we are currently sold out of the pattern (you can also buy it on Ravelry). Don't worry, we'll be getting more in soon.
