I have to admit, when Ann & Kay asked me to shoot their second book,being the smartass that I am, I replied , "Sure! unless it involves a handknit mop cover... " and just then Kay got this funny look on her face.
Whatever I may feel about the Swifty, I heart these gloves. If you need a last minute hostess gift this week, run to the book and make a pair of these. Wacky? yes, they are. But somehow hip and sophisticated at the same time. Just like Kay & Ann. (But don't tell them you heard it here.)
And speaking of small projects....
