UPDATE: Several people have asked for this pattern. It can be found at Dancing Ewe Yarns as a free download. Simple and quick. Enjoy!

Sluuuuuurp-paaap. Did you hear that? That gigantic sucking noise with the pop at the end is me being sucked into the wonderful Ravelry site. I've been hearing about Ravelry for years, the entire time that I've been blogging and knitting, but for some silly reason I had never even popped over to check it out. That changed recently, and ohmysoul! The yarns, the patterns, the people. I can hardly sleep for wondering what sweet patterns are passing me by on Ravelry. I've already found quite a few, which feeds my yarn obsession 'cause you certainly can't have new patterns without more fabulous yarn. I sure needed more distractions, more patterns, more yarn. How can a girl go to work when there's knitting that needs to be done?? And who could possibly pass up that gorgeous pattern that my new super-dee-dooper-I'm-so-in-love-with-these-reading-mittens came from? Not me, for sure. Fall weather, hurry up. I've got knitting to do and fabulous fall-y Sherwood Foresty fingerless mitts to wear.

Ravelry is awesome ... I usually start there when I have something in mind that I want to make. Just what I need ... another time sucker!

Love those warmers - the colors are gorgeous!

Paula, Ravelry looks like a great site. I haven't knitted for years. I find crocheting so much faster. However, because of my neck injury that happened years ago, I can't look down, so crocheting is also out.

Robin Hood...excellent novel. It's time I read one of the classics.

Hope you have a wonderful day.
Blessings,
Mary

Great reading gloves. I actualy started a fire last night. It was a bit nippy with the insulation torn out of the attic.

Adrienne said...

Just curious - what yarn did you use? It's so pretty!
