Winter is Coming

It’s the last day of September and the mornings and evenings are beginning to be chill here in Denmark. Most days I’m out on my bicycle going to and from work and I can feel it in my hands but unfortunately my mittens from last year need to be repaired as you can see.

Knowing myself, that won’t happen anytime soon so I had the choice between buying something or make a new pair myself. Like many other knitters I don’t like to buy what I can make myself, so I took out some of the swatches I’ve made the last couple of months to see if any them could be adapted for a pair of gloves.

I ended up choosing this swatch, knitted in Rowan Fine Tweed. Originally, it was meant for a cardigan but I could see it work for a pair of gloves as well.

The only thing I’ve changed is the colors. My winter coat is grey and I wanted something more cheerful. If everything goes well, I’ll try to write a pattern for them when I’m done.
