Aven Ivenda

The pattern for those was created as I knitted, so I'm surprised it turned out so well. :) 









Also on my tumblr

Here's the pattern. Feel free to use it - just don't forget to send me the photos!

They are gorgeous! You should consider making the pattern understandable for everyone (I think we all write stuff down that only makes sense to us on these things!) and sell the pattern!

Thank you! So many people encouraged me to publish the pattern (including you! I don't think there's a greater compliment a knitter could get than being asked to share the pattern :)) that I uploaded it to my Dropbox account: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/47649590/Aven%20Ivenda.pdf. I don't feel professional enough to sell my patterns... yet. :)

I *really* like these. If you're able to decipher your process, I'd be interested in making a pair myself.

Thanks so much! I'm so flattered. :)
I've uploaded the pattern here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/47649590/Aven%20Ivenda.pdf. I hope it's understandable. If you make those, please send me the photos!

What is your tumblr account, by the way? :) (if you don't mind being followed by a socially awkward nerdy knitter. :D)

These are UNBELIEVABLY adorable! I cannot wait to begin this project!

Where would you recommend finding this wool? Is there a certain brand that works particularly well?

Thank you!

Thanks a lot! Your comment was so kind and enthusiastic I just had to respond to it immediately. :D

I used Katia Austral, which is a merino/acrylic blend and is wonderfully soft and warm. However, I have to confess my choice of yarn was quite accidental - the yarn shop closest to my uni specializes in Katia, and I couldn't resist those pretty red skeins. So I can certainly recommend the yarn I used, but I guess anything that fits 3,5-4mm needles and is comfortable enough to be worn over hands could do. :)

EDIT: I don't know where you live, but I checked Katia website and the brand seems to be quite popular: http://www.katia.com/donde_encontrarnos.php?lng=EN. I hope this helps!
