pear tree denim

These were inspired by Amber, who would always wear nice slouchy fingerless gloves with a long ribbed top to staff meetings. I thought that was very clever, so I added 2 extra lengths of ribbing to the top of the long striped handwarmers from the purlbee. I have a lot of 3/4 length sleeves and these keep my wrists warm. And then I can roll down the top ribbing and tuck my fingers in when it is cold (it feels a bit like those skater hoodies with the holes in the cuffs).

These are pear tree merino yarn from australia in a denim colour way. I added in a few extra stitches as I found these knitted up a little small (but I knit tightly).

It took me almost 4 months to make these — I just carry my knitting around and get in a few stitches here and there.
