Hither

So it’s not cold yet…not at all.  In fact,I ran the air conditioner yesterday and there’s a very good chance I’ll run it again today.  But there have been one or two evenings where I found myself thinking ‘hmmm, it’s a tiny bit chilly, a little extra layer would be nice.’ Which is just exactly the sort of thing cuffs like these are perfect for.  They’re called Hither, they’re out now on ravelry, and you can get them for 10% off with the code LEAFY.

I know I’m not alone in my deep and abiding fondness for fingerless mitts.  You all seem to love them too.  They’re ridiculously useful (I swear I have a pair in every coat pocket and more in my desk drawer), they’re quick to knit (these only took about 150 yards of yarn), they make great gifts (easy to fit, and non-knitters are universally impressed with them since the store bought ones are nowhere near as cool).

And these are particularly charming if I do say so myself.  Lacy leaves are always pretty, and having the fancy bits run up both sides of your hands is rather marvelous (and don’t worry, there’s enough ribbing on the rest of the cuff that they fit great, I promise they’re comfy).

I suspect you’re going to find yourself wearing them all the time.  And, if you wear them around enough other people, you might find yourself fielding requests.  Though given how quick these are to knit, I don’t think you’ll mind much at all.

And, if you find you’re hopelessly smitten, you can make a matching hat in two weeks when the companion pattern comes out (ravelry does some cool stuff to let me give you a discount on the set if you’ve already bought this first pattern, so be sure you’re logged into your ravelry account when you get this one if you think you might want the hat when it comes).  But in the meantime, you can get Hither for 10% off with the code LEAFY.  It will work through the end of the day, Eastern time, on Friday September 21st.
