Now that my swap pal has received her presents I can post about what I made for her.
The top picture is a pair of fingerless mitts that I knit for my swap pal Kylee. I knit these out of Zara yarn. These were my first mitts that I had ever tried to knit so I was rather pleased that they turned out so nicely. The pattern is called Tyler Fingerless Mitts from the box kit of Hats, Mittens and Scarves by Angela Tung which I received last year for my birthday. The pattern was quite simple for a first time mitt knitter like me.
The second picture is the hot water bottle cover from Rowan 28 called Hottie. It was supposed to be knit in Rowan Kid Classic but I knit mine from Bendigo yarn. I only used 2 balls and I love the color too, cant remember it though as I cannot locate the ball band. I do have more details over on ravelry if anyone is interested.
