These were just the antidote I needed to all the brown and grey.
I took these pictures weeks ago, but haven't gotten around to blogging. I blame my husband being out of town for a week. And Ravelry.
But while I haven't been blogging, I *have* been knitting.
Caitie has been asking me for some fingerless gloves. (Actually, what she has been doing is wearing *my* fingerless gloves and folding them back so they're not too long). So I whipped up this pattern.
Of course after I did that, Sean wanted some too, and after that, Molly had to have some pink ones. I was working on the last pink one at a party and 4 people asked me if they could buy them from me.
I'm working on writing up the pattern. They're sized for toddlers to pre-teens and super easy to make. I've got pictures done so now I just need time uninterrupted to put the pattern together.
The problem is, they still need a name. I've got a few ideas, but I don't like any of them. Anyone got any good ideas? I'll give a free copy of the pattern or pair of them to anyone who comes up with a name I decide to use. I would really like a name brand kind of name (not just, you know, Mitts, or Kid's fingerless gloves). I love Sheepy Pants for that reason, but I also don't want to call them Sheepy Mitts, because that could get old really soon.
If you have any suggestions, email me!
