Green Thumb

Just in time for the end of summer and the promise of cooler weather, Leslie knit these fingerless gloves to stave off the morning chill.  What I love about these gloves is that, not only is it a very well-written pattern that’s easy to follow, but each glove is identical, so you don’t have to worry about reverse shaping with the gloves.  Coming from someone who has accidentally knit two left gloves more times than he cares to count, this is exciting.  These also make excellent gifts to just keep around for those last-minute occasions for which you don’t really have time to knit.  Because of their subtle design and ribbed body, they can easily fit a range of sizes for both men and women.

Leslie knit her Green Thumb fingerless gloves out of Manos Silk Blend.  This luxury, hand dyed yarn from Uruguay is a DK blend of silk and merino wool.  The silk lends this yarn an incredible sheen and wonderful drape while the wool provides warmth.  This makes for an elegant combination for your fingerless gloves.  Silk Blend also features deep, rich colors which make each project unique.  What more can you ask for?
