I have knitted myself a pair of gloves and I love them!

They don’t match…

Which I am also very happy with.

I added some beads I have had since childhood in my sewing basket. I think I took (stole) them from my Mum’s sewing basket. I have treasured them for decades, it is about time they saw the light of day!

This is the third pair I have made. I also made two green pairs for Christmas presents for special people.

This pair I decorated with broken shells (broken ones have natural holes to sew through) and another pair I put on a sprinkling of sparkly green/clear beads.

The pattern is from Churchmouse Yarns.

I used yarn from Manos Del Uruguay which is silk/merino and is really soft and not itchy at all. Lovely.
