Can't Stop Thinking
This glove, one of a pair worn this winter, started as some fingerless mitts that my friend Sweetfigs gave me, along with the left over yarn. Briar Rose Fibers, of course. Heritage, 100% Wensleydale fiber. I decided that a fingerless glove was sort of useless in Chicago weather, so I took the stitches out to past the thumb opening, which left a nice long cuff, and then I knit a glove up from the live stitches. I have another pair waiting for the same treatment. I like a glove with a long cuff, as I detest that gap between a glove and a coat sleeve.
