Someone asked 'why all the grey?' when they saw me knitting this week, and I can't really give a good answer for that, except that I just like it. I also like Wellington in the winter, which definitely puts me in a minority.
There's no denying that the weather here is 'difficult' but that's okay with me. More reason to knit and wear cosy things, feel grateful for hot coffee, my house and fireplace and warm coat. And I never get tired of the wintry sea views (the top photo was taken on a nearby hilltop this time last year).
These are my Wellington winter fingerless mitts/armwarmers, finished just in time for peak greyness and the winter solstice. I'm so happy with them - they're lightweight and nice and long for under my cardigan and winter coat. Perfect for typing 9-5 in the chilly office, which is how I spend most of my time these days. The pattern is this one from the Purl Bee, and the yarn is Vintage Purls sock yarn.
