From the Wrist Down

From the Wrist Down

Today’s post is all about my hands… or at least things that are going to adorn that area.

In the last week I have been very fortunate to receive some gifts that will allow me to make my hands pretty.

My friend Violet Le Beaux most graciously made me a set of custom false nails.  She is very talented, and I can’t wait until I get to wear them!  They’re black, silver, red and white so they will pretty much go with anything.  I just love them!  Now to get myself some good glue.

I also finally got my Mother’s Day present from my husband & son.  It’s been on layby for a few months, but I’ve been looking for it for years.  I have always found it hard to find a style of watch (that isn’t antique) that suits me.  It had to be oval, silver and a fairly low profile.  Thank goodness I found this watch, as I was starting to get a bit over using my phone as a watch all the time.  What I love is that it will look good with any ‘era’ of clothing too.  Dressed up, or dressed down.

And then there’s something I’m making for myself.  Pretty fingerless mitts.  I’ve been meaning to make myself a new pair for this year, and as I’m making them in gorgeous Knitabulous Fifty Fifty, they’ll be suitable to wear well into Spring!  The pattern is “Veyla” by Ysolda Teague.  She’s a very talented designer,and I just LOVE her stuff!  I’m just about 1/2 way through the first lace cuff, and it’s a delightful knit so far.

  1. YAY! I’m so glad you like them! I hope they fit well ^_^ The watch is lovely and I just can’t wait to see how your Veyla turns out. I’m going to spend my down time tonight balling the lovely yarn you sent me so I can start knitting!
