Such is the case with these fingerless gloves.
I knit myself a pair YEARS ago out of some Koigu that I had in my stash. I used Smoking Hot Needle's 'Kyla' pattern which triggered what turned into quite the binge. I knit a tonne of those gloves! For friends, for sisters, for me... you name it! Such a great pattern.
But here we are, years later and I am in need of some new ones.
The cast off had popped, there was a hole in the thumb, the colour had faded... it was getting pretty ugly.
Queue the updated (not to mention festive!) version I whipped up over the past week.
|Extra long to cover my knuckles|
When will this knitter ever learn that there is no such thing as a knitting pattern that's too easy!?!?!?!
|And extra long cuff to fold back over my wrist|
While I did miss the tree cutting day deadline, I completed them just in time for our first snowfall of the season on Friday. I wore them while I shoveled, and I wore them yesterday as we headed over to my sister and brother-in-law's for lunch.
Merry Christmas to me!

I might just be hearing the rumblings of another binge just around the corner- and I'm not only referring to a Christmas cookie binge!
Merry Christmas everyone!
