The Wonderful Welted Fingerless Gloves

Well, by now you know I am a Churchmouse Yarns & Tea pattern junkie. Really. I intend to knit every one of their patterns...that's how great they are. Like their other patterns, this one is easy, correct (not always a given), and clearly written. Best of all, it fits! The yarn I used from top to bottom, is Habu's silk mohair and Pagewood Farms' Tundra knit together. While the mohair is so fine it barely makes an appearance, it does soften the silk and make the gloves a bit warmer. The vintage mother-of-pearl buttons are the perfect finishing touch.
P.S. The backdrop for this display is one of judi patuti's beautiful home dec fabrics in Robin's Egg blue. Nothing could say "Spring" in a louder whisper.

  1. Ooh, Susan, those fingerless gloves are to die for! And the yarn, well.. you know how I feel about everything Pagewood Farms! And then the JudiPatudi fabrics. Well, that's why everything is so yummy and Springlike over at the Grove. See you soon. -x
