I've been knitting some warmth to prepare me and my love for the upcoming New England winter. Most recently, it was fingerless mittens for the both of us (Thanks again, Martha!).
Mr. James loves them and claims that they are perfect for pick-pocketing in London (after which he proceeds to loudly belt songs from the musical, "Oliver"). I was thinking more along the lines of late autumn outdoor guitar strumming...but that's just me.
I always need my fingers free for my fanatical winter photo-shooting and these are the perfect solution. I made some crocheted ones last year, but I like the look of knit ones better.
