Earl on Hand

I am always a little bit sad to see summer go. Our dry New Mexican summers are simply the best and I need a while to adjust to the cooler wheather.

Wool is my comfort.

Fall and winter just beg for knitting and working with wool in front of a crackling fire and I so enjoy pulling the woolen sweaters from the depths of the closet like old friends, that you have not met in a long time.

This year there is the added pleasure of Earl and Princess. Remember?

The transformation from this... this....

....never ceases to amaze me!

Just this week I needed my fingerless mitts for the first time this fall and that made up for the chill!

I can't say this often enough:

Thank you, Earl!


  1. ooo that green! my all time favorite color greeeeeeeennnnnn. I really like that pattern you use for your mitts.

  2. I'm gonna echo Mary on this one. Those greens are awesome! My sisters have made some nice fingerless mitts like this. If I could just get my hands on some yarn in that color scheme, I'd be able to give one of them a project! :)

  3. Oh... I do have sheep envy. I think my yard might be big enough for one (sigh). LOVE the green gloves!
