For the first time in months, it’s actually kind of chilly in Austin today! In a city that’s well aquainted with the triple digit temperature range, 60 degree weather is great cause for celebration–and what better way to celebrate than by knitting something cozy?! The fingerless glove is one of my favorite accessories that marries fashion with function. Inspired by my friend Karen Baumer’s furry cuffed mittens, I break this month’s free pattern out of my project archives. Enjoy! xo, Vickie
