Winter is Coming

It’s day 5 of a heat wave and it’s too hot to be outside. The attempted natures walks of yesterday did not end well. Staying inside in the air conditioning meant I had some time to finish up a couple of projects. I finished up a hat and pair of fingerless gloves.

Hat is knit from my own improvised pattern, yarn is Blue Moon Fiber BFL sport color way Drucilla.

The only thing I had to do was weave in the ends. It took about 10 minutes of effort. Basic pattern is CO 90, join. K2 P1 for about an inch. Knit 4 inches (hat is now 5 inches long). Place markers every 10 stitches and decrease.

Gloves are Fruit Loop Gloves in Madeline Tosh Sock, color is Tart.

I started these last summer in Montreal, and I only had the thumbs to finish. Pattern modified to make them fingerless. I learned that it is really hard to take a picture of your own hand. Yarn in the picture is for the next problem that I am going to cast on.
