In the not altogether distant future...
Really it is...
Even if it was 30 degrees celsius today.

So this year I decided to start with a few small projects in these warm summer months. No big mass of adult human-sized sweater resting in the lap on a sweltering day.
back in November. And I have a condition that means keeping my hands working is really important if I want to be a little more pain free. So I limbered up my digits and got my first ever pair of fingerless mittens!
Secret? Never really understood the point of fingerless mittens. Aren't my fingers going to be cold? I like the look though, so when it gets cold I'll let you know how my fingers feel.
These babies were finished weeks ago, but life got in the way (in the form of man flu) and I couldn't nab a photographer until today.
Pattern: Andi Satterlund's free Adorable Fingerless Mittens (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Quince & Co. Chickadee in Storm (thought it was going to be a more "petrol" blue, but is far more dirty grey)
Time to complete: Couple of days knitting here and there, very quick knit.
Up next? A few fantastic hats. I love hats...
