I AM FAMOUS!!

Yes...I meant to type that title in ALL CAPS because I'm VERY excited right now. Remember how we went to see Pioneer Woman in St. Louis last month? Well, like I said I made her a pair of gloves and the Alohaknitter made her a scarf. We both secretly hoped but never dreamed we would actually get a mention on PW's blog. Today I start checking my email and I am getting email after email about these gloves! I couldn't figure out how these women knew me and then it hit me.... I was on PW's blog!!! Ree actually posted about MY gloves on her blog...well they are her gloves now but they will always be kinda 'my' gloves. I am so excited!

I wish I could give Ree a hug and tell her thank you for all the wonderful ladies who have stopped by my blog today.

Some have showed interest in purchasing them and yes I will make you a pair of fingerless gloves...just leave a comment or email me.

Thanks for all the wonderful emails from all the wonderful ladies across the country. This is so exciting for me!

I'm here from PW's blog too. Nice gloves! I love to crochet but knitting has proved to be too difficult. :) Your gloves are lovely.

Merry Christmas!

Whoo Hoo Lynn!!!

Chester and I are so proud :)

Donna said...

Wow, amazing what happens when Ree gets involved. :)
I found a pair of these gloves a few weeks ago but they were like $30. I just couldn't get myself to pay that. I have been casually looking for a pattern since and then I look on PW this morning and BAM, this one jumped up and smacked me. How great is that! I crochet though, so I am going to see if I can figure out how to make it a crocheting pattern.
Thanks!

emily said...

Love the gloves. Thanks for sharing the information. When I semi-retired in 2006 I began surfing the web for knitting patterns and info. Jumping from one site to the next eventually led me to PW's site and now here I am! Looks like you are going to be very busy! Best to you and Merry Christmas!!

Hi! I came on your blog yesterday and saw you had a link to the pattern for the gloves. I am fairly new to knitting but I would like to give them a try. I see the links appear to be removed or I am just blind. Can you tell me where to go?

Thanks

Ashley

Can you send me info on your fingerless gloves @ bednarluck@gmail.com? Thanks so much!

Knit Porn said...

I hope you've asked the designer for permission to sell those...

Steven said...

I would love a pair of gloves for cutting wood (or writing tickets). The fingerless tips would keep plenty of room for slivers but the palms of my hands would remain "silky smoothe" (please credit this statement to Paul Mitchell hair products). Best of luck Lynn,

Best Wishes Steve
