I have been blown away by the response on Ravelry.com to my new pattern! I don’t know what to say. I have loved every brilliant project photo, forum post, comment and private message. I am thrilled to be part of a community with such a good sense of humour. There have been so many highlights so I thought I’d share some of my favourites here.
This spectacular pattern for the Emperor involves all possible knitting techniques known to man or woman. It includes cables, bobbles, stripes, entrelac, intarsia, mock cables, twisted stitches, nupps, beading, log cabin, buttons and embroidery. You will need to be confident at reading charts for lace and fairisle. You will need to be adept at knitting in the round at a very fine gauge.
These truly exquisite mitts, made from the finest gold yarn, are only visible to the most capable of knitters.
Despite their utter complexity, you may find that they make an ideal last-minute gift to knit for a loved one who is allergic to hand knits. They are also ideal for a quick fingerless gloves KAL if you’re not sure what to knit, since they will fit any theme exquisitely.
