Swedish Cuff Pattern

Fingerless gloves are very popular right now! They are very convenient to wear while blogging too! It's great to be able to wear gloves and type!

The cuff pattern is a warm olive green yarn knit with taupe and mocha brown yarn. The stripe design is from a Swedish mitten book from the 1850s!

Fingerless gloves are quicker to knit than regular mittens. They are perfect to make when you want to use up your stash of yarns too!

Here are some freshly made earrings, with peach color faceted briolettes and copper findings.

The background in the photos match the earrings. It is from a greeting card my sister (Karen Harvey Cox) made. The colors of the papers and the earrings match perfectly!

When you think you can't create, keep creating!

That little picture of you is one of my favorites. That day we had stopped by Grandma's to pick up Bobby to go into the Ed Sullivan Show. We had a photograph taken with Ed Sullivan, it was Easter Sunday. You were always the most gorgeous little girl.

I love these fingerless gloves. I always think of that scene from While You Were Sleeping when Sandra Bullock wore them as a coin taker at the train.

Love, Karen
