Hello everyone! Once again it’s been quite a while since my last entry. I’ve had plenty to write about, but I haven’t had the time. Woolhouse and Annie Yarn are keeping me pretty busy now that we’re into fall. I’ve only had time to design one pattern, and it’s the featured knitting design in this month’s Yarnbox! Meet Leaflet Gloves…
These gloves, both knit the same way for ease, are a fun project when the autumn knitting bug bites—or any time you wish to knit something with a touch of nature in it. Ribbing along the edges prevents rolling, and the cables are quick and simple to craft. A gusseted thumb makes for a comfy fit, and the leaflets are what inspired me to design the pattern in the first place. The cuff can easily be lengthened if desired and still be a 1-skein project.
If you purchase the pattern, take a good look at the charts. Don’t they look hand-drawn? That’s because they are! The knitting symbols fonts I have didn’t have the symbols I needed, so I drew the charts myself and turned them into graphics in Adobe Illustrator.
A matching hat idea is rolling around in my head, so I might design one. Or I might not. Depends on where my inspiration is. But I probably will because I love these gloves and want a matching hat to wear this fall. ;)
Those of you who are Yarnbox members are getting this pattern free. I look forward to seeing your projects in Ravelry!
