My apologies that I've been so MIA! The Hubster and I have been sick, besides being busy having a very lovely Christmas.
It seems like each winter some item rises above the rest as my most-knit item of the season. For several years when I first started knitting, this was, predictably, scarves. I knit oodles and oodles.
Christmas 2006: lots of scarves!
This year, though, it's been gloves. Gloves, gloves, and more gloves for about two months. Every now and then I feel a bit sick of them, but everyone who has a pair seems to love them so much (myself included), that I think they really are a worthwhile endeavor.
So, I'd like to highlight a few pairs I've knit recently.
First: cotton handwarmers.
These are ribbed all the way down and have a longer cuff than the ones I've shared with y'all previously. I just sold a tan pair on Etsy, and I knit these for a friend.
Second: Wool Fingerless Gloves.
These were my mama's Christmas present, and I have to admit that I'm rather proud of them (though all photo credit goes to her and my dad--they sent these lovely pics to me this morning). They're trimmed with mulberry to match her coat.
Third, and finally, my current project: Tree of Life Fingerless Gloves.
I knit myself a pair of these two years ago, darned them last winter, but, as the photo shows, they're really in desperate need of replacing. So, I've finally started knitting myself a new pair!
Love them? Check out the pattern at KnitPicks.
Well, there you have it, folks. My glove knitting mania in words and pictures.
Remember, I love custom orders, so hop on over to my Etsy shop if you have a hankering for a pair of gloves knit just to your fancy!
Adventure well; Live fully.
