I would love to spend a little time with you, my reader, on my blog today. It is a stormy day in upstate New York, and we are expecting snow a bit later in the week. The turkey is waiting to be thawed, the groceries and fresh produce from our favorite farm market are purchased and waiting for Thursday’s big day of cooking and gratitude.
Tomorrow morning I will try to sit down with a cuppa and do a bit of writing for you, but I cannot promise that will happen; it might be Friday morning before I can do that.
However, for today I can let my knitting readers in on a new pattern release. The gloves you see in this photo are knuckle gloves I designed and knit for my son. This past week he was in Toronto with his partners from Bumpy Pitch for the MLS (Major League Soccer) Cup. I made him a new, warm and cushy scarf and hat (pattern to be release late next week) as well as these knucks to help keep him warm while he was there.
They are easy and fun to knit with about 160 yards of any sock yarn, and you can knit them up in a weekend so if you still need an idea for a Christmas gift for a guy on your list keep this pattern in mind. The pattern is available for download in my Etsy store, on my website, and in my Ravelry pattern store.
For now, I have to run … hope you enjoy your day.
And if I don’t get back to the blog before Thanksgiving, have a beautiful and delicious day filled with love and all those things you have to be grateful for.
