{FO} Girlie Zombies of the Apocalypse

Ever have that moment when you finish a gift for someone and you have that second where you want to hide the gift and replace it with something else? I had that moment when I finished the Zombie Vixen fingerless gloves for my sister-innotquite-law, Sarah. 

I loved these gloves.  And I loved the yarn I chose - Candy Skein delicious fingering in Blackberry. Talk about a chameleon of yarn.  No matter how hard I tried, I could not get a photo that was true to life.  It would photograph as either green, grey, or  a muted purple but never the true vibrant color it was.  

I definitely will have to make a pair of these for myself sometime down the road.  It is certainly an entertaining knit that requires a lot of concentration. Which was good for me, since I knit the second glove primarily in the hospital while we waited for my dad to come in and out of brain surgery.  I did warn Sarah that one glove might be a wee bit tighter than the other but she said they fit perfectly. 

I also have this very silly, lovely completed project:


  1. I hope your Dad's come through surgery well and on the mend. I've spent many hours knitting in hospital waiting rooms - I think it's kept me sane a few times. Gorgeous glove pattern. I'm gonna have to queue it!

  2. Hope all is well with your dad. Lively mitts.

  3. LOVE the mitts! I can see why you wanted to hide them!

  4. crap. i accidently put my email in the name field. can you change it to just katiemetzroth so i dont get a ton of spam? thanks!!!! sorry!

    1. I couldn't figure out how to change your name so I deleted the comment. Thank you for the compliment! My dad is hanging in there, he starts round two of chemo in a week.

  5. Love both projects! They turned out great!

  6. Beatiful mitts and beautiful yarn! You always make me want to run out and buy Candy Skein!
    My heart is with you and your family. I know firsthand how scary the Big C is, no matter how non-bad they say it is. Sending you love and good vibes xox
