Oooooh, nice texture. Where did you get those wonderful handwear blockers?

Thanks. Those blockers are at least 10 years old, made by Guinea Ridge Designs and purchased from Halcyon Yarn in Bath, Maine ( http://www.halcyonyarn.com). They made sock blockers too but I'm not certain if they're still around.

I think the lady who makes the stitch markers I used in class also makes handwear blockers...I know she makes FANTASTIC Sock blockers :-)

I blocked my gloves on an upright hand that is intended as a ring holder, you can get them fairly cheap at jewelry stores and dept. stores, especially around the holidays.

I love the idea of using the tail to tie them together! Perfect for kids (and absent minded adults :-)

You did a good job. I like the pattern and color.
