In Southern Ontario we’ve had a hint of snow and so I have been thinking more about warm finger-free gloves. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different versions and I’m not sure which are my favourites. Here are the newest ones — made from boiled wool with sweater cuffs for extra warmth. I like the way these fit and cover much of your hand while still leaving your fingers free. At the bottom are examples of all three styles–each designed to bring a boost of colour, style and warmth to your day. My two favourite sources of inspiration favour the lime green ones in the middle. As for me, right now I am siding with the red ones above. But I do love the funky striped sleeves of colour. My friend June says they can be worn indoors ‘like a bracelet’. All will be available at the annual sale and possibly on-line after November 24.
And for the curious, the hooked rug pictured below is my very, very first hooked rug, a Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern of three Maritime houses with my own border of wingless birds! And I’ve been putting at least one bird on every hooked rug since–evolved now to include wings and feet!
