a photo finish(ed object)
It's tough to take a picture of your own hand with a fancy pants camera that you don't know how to use properly. Hence, this is as good as it gets - home alone today with the last dregs of the flu bug, I finished a second Evangeline. I need them for Friday, for someone special - aren't those cables grand? Maybe I won't be able to part with them? Good to have some suspense in case someone special might be reading. em.
I chose this project after seeing Tiennie's fabulous gang of them - many, many lovely, inspiring pairs. I have only one pair to show for myself but I did modify it a bit, only the number of repeats as the pattern is perfect - I chose to do less repeats then the elbow length but more that the wrist length version called for. My special giftee is an avid walker and with spring coming I was looking for something fingerless and fun but also long enough to sneak up a coat sleeve, hate that little draft when mittens and coats don't have a proper relationship.
I think I also chose this project because of the name - Evangeline, a dear sweet scullery maid in Nanny McPhee - the name just charmed me, the character had me at "hello" - a woman of commitment and sacrifice - kind of like the giftee - hmmm, can you guess?
I love that the colorway compliments Project Spectrum and the curved cables are somewhat reminiscent of Valentine's day - something sugary sweet indeed.
