it's definitely feeling Novemberish here in the North. time to start piling on the layers, and thinking of walks as bracing.
only problem I have with walks is that I am so horribly unfit at the moment I end up getting hot and out of breath, and hating all of the layers. walking up the hill to the house doesn't help. so I start shedding layers, which is fine except my fingers still turn an interesting shade of blue.
solution - fingerless gloves! I have just knitted these for a friend for Christmas, the colours are perfect for her, but I really need to get going with the pair that is for me, otherwise she won't get them.........
the pattern is called mit envy, it's a free ravelry download, and as a cable novice I really enjoyed them and they were quite quick.
I think they will work just perfectly or taking part in Silverpebbles making winter series.
