Cursed Co-worker or Cursed Knitted Gifts?
Yarn: Swan's Island Natural Colors
Cap Pattern: Côte-Nord Cap by Amy Christoffers
Free Fingerless Gloves Pattern: Maize (with modifications)
I knit this gift-set for a co-worker to give to his girlfriend for Christmas. I took no money for the yarn or time; that was my gift to him. Good Karma, right?
Sadly, I learned she accepted her lovely cap and no gap at the thumb gusset mitts knit in lovely 100% organic wool and then DUMPED him! I have heard of the sweater curse and I wonder if that curse split and formed a new unforgivable and not yet identified curse.
Perhaps it is my co-worker who is cursed and not my lovely knitted hat and gloves. I know this: I would not want her karma.
Notes: The Swan's Island Company yarn used for is 100% organic merino. It knit up with a soft hand and the color “Glacier” is a lovely shade of blue!!! The fabric is light but very warm. It took less than one skein for my hat and with just enough yarn to knit a simple pair of hand-warmers to go with. For the mitts I used Maize making a few modifications as I knit. The stitches in the hat and gloves relaxed during a short soak and looked flawless after they dried.
