I decided to go with the fingerless gloves, in the end. I have always loved a good seed stitch and after spending way too much time searching I decided to go with the Purl Soho Seed Stitch Mittens + Hand Warmers free knitting pattern. This pattern was published in 2014 and I have seen it around the web and on Pinterest over the years and it looks like a classic wardrobe item.
The pattern indicates that it uses 2 skeins of yarn, so I was initially worried there wouldn’t be any leftover to finish out the scarf. After doing some knitting math, I determined I would be fine.
This weekend I had loads of knitting hours in the Elkhorn mountians while Jason ran the Elkhorn 50k Run. I always feel so inspired and dream of running while I watch so many people achieve their winning goals, but than I go out for a run and remember it is not my thing.
