Both hands are under way now and I am just waiting now for the four inch needles to arrive from Yarn Bazaar so that the fingers and thumbs can be knitted.
Whilst I am waiting I can make a start on my next pair. I have been lucky enough to pick up an original Patons and Baldwins glove pattern, like the one featured on the SCRAN website and similar to the design on the tata-tatao website. This has a full charted alphabet so the gloves can be personalised in the Sanquhar tradition.
I am also looking forward to receiving copies of traditional patterns supplied by the Scottish Women’s Rural Institute and should I want even more sources then Beth Brown-Reinsel’s compass and rose design is a work or art.
