a couple of knit finishes from late last year that were sent across the globe.

First up, some pretties for my mum…

The pattern is ‘Welted Fingerless Gloves’ by Church mouse yarns. Details on yarn & pattern used via Ravelry.

I stitched on some buttons as suggested in the pattern. I used some vintage shell buttons from the stash with some silk thread to match the yarn.

Next up some practical man mitts for dad.  I wish I had got a photo of my hand beside them as they looked comically large but they are a perfect fit I’ve been assured.

The pattern is from this great book ‘Knits Men Want’ by Bruce Weinstein which I borrowed from a friend. My yarn & pattern notes are over on Rav.
