Living in the Midwestern United States, you would think that during the hot summer months I would be putting my hand-knits away and forgetting about them until the fall chill starts to hit the air. But you would be wrong! There always seems to be an overly climate-controlled space where I need a little something. While a light-weight shawl can work wonders at keeping that cool air at bay, nothing beats a pair of fingerless mitts for keeping my hands comfortable in that (just a little bit too) cool office!

ABOUT THE DESIGNER – MARY E. ROSE
Mary learned to knit as a young child and it has had an impact on her life ever since. As a teen, when her friends were getting jobs at fast food restaurants, Mary worked at her LYS, where the hours and working conditions were much better.
As with many knitters, when she couldn’t find patterns for what she wanted to knit, she started designing her own.
