Gloves the Colour of Ancient Ice

Dear Laura,

A long long time ago I was wondering through the white house farmers market, where I stumbled across two lovely ladies selling wool they had dyed and spun themselves(you can read about that here). Their wool was so lovely I couldn't resist but buy some. I liked it so much that I wanted to find just the right project to use it on, this has taken two years, but finally at thanksgiving I started to knit. I wanted try to figure out how to do thumb holes in fingerless gloves by myself so it was a bit of an experimental knit to say the least. In general though it was nice an easy, I went for rib stitch in the round and then increased a little around the thumb holes, held the stitches with safety pins as I finished off to the fingers and then went back and finished the thumbs. 

They have been keeping me warm ever since I knit them. The perfect accompaniment to winter and all the lovely hand knits I get to snuggle into at this time of year.

Lots of love
