This week I have made a start on something that has been on my to-do list for over a month. I have several Christmas markets coming up and fingerless gloves have been popular at previous events so I wanted to make some more.
Obviously they need to be strokably soft, so I decided to use some hand dyed alpaca I had left over from another project and combined it with some lovely merino for the green and orange pairs.
Here they are after laying out the fibres.
And once dry:
I also made a “rainbow” pair from merino, they are a little bit shorter than I planned but are quite wide so will suit larger hands.
And I started this piece too – can you guess what it is yet?
