Glovember is Upon Us!!

Happy Glovember one and all!!

I have found my half-finished handwarmer that I started earlier this year which needs a mate and that will be my first Glovember goal. This project was my first attempt at color work and except for an unfortunate purling incident which my husband has told me no one will notice I think this half-handwarmer looks pretty good. A little nervous about picking up the stitches for the thumb which are on waste yarn- have only done that for baby sweater sleeves but they give you more stitches to work with...

 The second pair of handwarmers I want to make will be from this pattern. They are a surprise for a childhood friend who I haven't seen in many years. She plays the double bass so I think she'll dig these. She is one of those people who I have kept ever-so-slightly in touch with over Facebook and I feel like if I hadn't moved away we might be quite good friends. It's just a vibe I get. In any event, I think she will like them and they look way fun to make.
