Knitting Notes

I actually cast on holiday knitting item two a couple of days ago, but only just finally got around to taking a picture of it. You'll notice I'm not necessarily that far along, as the pattern is a bit more fiddly than the last one I completed.

These are Nereid Fingerless Gloves, which are based on Cookie A's Pomatomus sock pattern. It's actually not nearly as hard a pattern as I initially feared, it just requires a little bit of paying attention. So, it's definitely not something I can work on with anything remotely distracting on the tv nearby.

I'm using STR Raven Clan yarn in the Thraven colorway. Unlike the Valkyrie yarn I got at the same time, this one hasn't been rubbing off on my fingers as I knit, which is a definitely plus. It's also a lot more understated than the Valkyrie yarn - the undertones aren't as prevalent over the black. It's still pretty, though.
