It has been quite a while, hasn’t it? The fall weather is upon us, and it is only natural to want to get back to the things I love the most – knitting and blogging. It has been a challenge for me to find balance between my new life as a working woman and my old life as a homemaker, but I’ve slowly begun to find my footing! There are four projects that have been completed since I have been back to work, but I thought I’d start with my most recent cast-on.
My dearest Dona sent me this lovely alpaca wool for my birthday back in May. It is a gorgeously fuzzy wool in my favorite color – gray! Initially, I was going to knit a pair of socks, but then decided to use it for something that I could wear more than once a week. Since the weather has been increasingly cooler, I thought a simple pair of fingerless gloves would be a perfect use of this wool!
The yarn is a 4-ply fingering weight, and is knitting up into such a delicate fabric – they are warm without being bulky, which means these can be easily worn inside or outside the house. Since I really didn’t have the energy to search for a pattern, I am just making this one up as I go along…
…but, I am taking plenty of notes so that I can share the pattern with you, if you’d like. These are so easy and knit up quickly – they are perfect for knitters seeking some instant-gratification. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
