My father’s office has been particularly cold of late. Because of this, he’s taken to wearing his bike gloves for a bit of extra warmth while working at his computer. My mom told me of this and wondered if he might like a pair of fingerless gloves for the office. Of course, I am powerless to resist knitting for a family member “in need” so I got started immediately after I received his hand measurements.
Since I work exclusively from stash these days, I pulled out some knitpicks wool of the andes I had in stash. I had to pair it with another color because there was no way I had enough for a full set of gloves. I don’t think the stripes look too bad, and since there was a pitifully small amount of main color left over, it was a good decision.
My plan is to spend some time weaving on this lovely Saturday. It’s been awhile, and I’ve got an open wall space I hope to hang the current project from. Time to get a move on with it!
