Ready for winter

Or for excessive air conditioning. My desire for something to keep my hands and arms warm at work is sometimes year-round. Hence the red gauntlets, which are finally finished.

These are the elegant gauntlets from Sally Melville's The Purl Stitch. I used just a little more than two skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. It's a gorgeous yarn, and not too pricey for an accessory. I'd love to make a sweater out of this stuff, but such is not in my budget. But I can enjoy my gauntlets.

Now it's time to turn my attention to a new project. ThreadingWater has started the Mother's Day Project as a way to honor the female Coalition members who have died in the Iraq War. I'll write more about this project as I go along.
