I completed both these projects last month but it was so dark that all my photos looked gloomy.
Now the last thing I want for you to see is gloomy pics. So I waited (and waited) until the weather was brighter and I am still waiting!…
So because the sun is not coming out to play with me today, I found some pics of the scarf from last month and have combined it with some quick hand snaps of me wearing one fingerless glove!
Now have you ever tried photographing one hand whilst holding the camera with the other. Not easy I can tell you that.
The mitts: ‘Fidra mitts’
The pattern: by Shirley Macdonald. from inside crochet magazine issue 56.

My alterations I added tassels and I used a size 5mm hook instead of a 4mm.
I would love to know if you have any suggestions for overcoming the ‘gloomy light’ problem?
