Fingerless Gloves

Hey everyone!  I've got news, and it is GOOD! We are in the process of selling the house!  Just when we didn't think it was going to happen--it did!  I am feeling very lucky right now, and also very stressed.  We are moving about 4 hours north of here, up into the gorgeous highlands of Scotland.  And hopefully we are destined to live in a beautiful stone farmhouse out in the country (I'll keep you posted on that).  

As you know, I'm taking the girls to visit my family and now we have to add the move on to that--I've got stress people!  So that brings me to another piece of news; this will be my last post for a month or so.  Do try not to miss me too much, and know that I'll be back before too long.  But before I go, here is my latest crafty project.

Dad's Gloves
I made these for my Dad for Father's Day, and of course he will get them belatedly (not to mention in summer), but he won't mind.  I made them to match the hat I made him earlier this year, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out.  My first fingerless gloves, and good fun!  I used a pattern I got in this book, which I checked out of my local library.  I LOVE my library, especially the mobile one that comes to the bottom of my street each week. 

In all honesty, I have three gloves, as the first one I made fit me perfectly, and therefore wasn't any good for a man's hand.  On the upside, I only have to make one more and I'll have a pair for myself, and they will match the cable hat I made myself.  Almost like I planned it!

Happy crafting everyone, and a fond farewell for a wee while.  Keep those needles clicking!
