I have a great love of September. It means summer is finally almost over - and here in the desert it is a lovely thought that the heat will end. September contains the Autumnal Equinox that abundant time of equal day and night that marks the turning of the year. What better way to celebrate than a small circle weaving in handspun with a few beads added?
These gloves are one of my first pair this year. They are all in handspun solar dyed Blue Faced Leicester, navajo plied and knit from the Wabi Sabi pattern by Kirsten Tendyke Here
I like this pattern because the mitts are knit two at a time on the same pair of knitting needles. Handspun is perfect for these. I like to divide a ball in half and knit from two instead of the ends of one - it seems like there is less twisting of yarn that has to be undone.
Circle weaving classes start at the store in October.
May your autumn be long and colorful!
