Where did Spring go? It was in the mid 70s last week and now, I have to put my coat on to go outside? Seriously? I'm ready for warm weather!
I'm one of those knitter types that will fondle yarn all year long. It drives my Dad nuts- "How can you knit in 85 degree weather?!" he'll exclaim. Simple, I say: "A little invention called air conditioning". Besides, if you knit gifts for Christmas, getting a jump start on the holidays means starting in August- am I right?
Do you remember those fingerless mitts I was wearing in March's video? Sweet Melissa from Melissa's Kre8tions made them for me! They are so darn happy, I could eat them- if you really like them, I believe they are knit from her "Crayon" handspun that is listed in her shop now. She sent some samples in for March in the same colorway. Melissa was so sweet, in fact, she sent in a pair of fingerless gloves for you, our lucky commenter! Just visit Melissa's wonderful shop, find something you like, and post about it below here! These gloves are made with an open lace stitch so they are the perfect spring-time accessory for those of you who are also wondering where spring went. Remember, I will count your twittering, plurks, facebook status, blogposts and forum posts as second entries to win! Leave a way for me to contact you, in case you're the lucky winner.
Melissa, I love your yarn and your shop, and your outlook on life! Thanks so much for being a Phat Fiber contributor!
