gloves that have been knitted
It would seem summer is over where I live. Very cold nights and chilly windy days have been the norm for the past week. I am not ready for this because I love summer. I will accept autumn soon though because I enjoy the pretty leaves and I do still get to be outside working in the yard.

With the change of seasons comes the need for clothing and accessories that will keep you warm on the nippy days ahead. One such accessory is gloves. When I was growing up my mom would knit gloves and mittens for us. You can make your own gloves too and save money in the process. Sew-ing.com has a step by step article on how to make your own cloth gloves. The article has awesome pictures and great patterns for you to check out. If you are interested in making leather gloves, then glove.org is the site for you. The author walks you through the steps necessary to make gloves, and provides details on how to measure your hand for gloves.

If you want to knit gloves, check out Grandma's gloves from bevscountrycottage.com. If you are stuck on ideas for a pattern, check out knittingpatterncentral.com. They have hundreds of knitting patterns, tips and tricks, and instructions on how to knit gloves and mittens.

When the canning and jelly making was complete and the first snowfall came, you could always find my mom clacking away with her knitting needles. There are enough ideas, patterns, and tips and tricks to keep you busy all autumn and winter long too. Happy glove making!
