While the idea of thick wool fingerless gloves may not be the most appealing in the heat and humidity of a Maryland summer, it is all about thinking ahead! My sister Maryn is moving from California to Virginia this fall, so this pair of mitts – her early birthday present – are the reminder for the chilly autumn and winter ahead!
The pattern was simple and perfect for this yarn. I made some small additions to the pattern – namely another purl bump row on the hand and thumb gusset – for continuity.
As I mentioned in the earlier post, Daniel, Maryn and Baby V are visiting now, and it was the perfect time to give her these mitts before her July birthday. Maryn is five months pregnant with baby #2, another girl due in October!
One more green to add to the list in these last day’s of the GREEN month!
Do you have any last minute projects planned before the end of the month?
