Saturday Clocks Back

Turning back time here.  These fingerless were made years ago. . I didn't like the look when they were finished.  Turns out I love them now.  I thought they were like the abominable snowman's fuzzy coat.  

I swear they are from 2004.  They machine wash and dry.  They are crochet edged in angora.  

I'm knitting fingerless now in an angora bunny blend.  I'm suddenly all about fingerless again.  Useful for keyboards and driving and all those good things.  Haha: I'm designing a simple pattern and calling it :Wringing My Hands fingerless for the Cubs last game win! 

We have our shelter Gala tonight.  It's been a big chuck of time and energy.  I hope we are very successful in fundraising.  I'm nervous. 
Isn't that silly?   
All of your volunteer comments were enlightening to me.  I'm thinking them all through.  

Happy Turn Back the clocks night!  Welcome darkness, you have your strong points too!

That is some interesting yarn! How hard was that to knit with? Looks like it has a lot going on.

Good Point Dee. It was NOT Easy to work with at all I recall. BUt it hid a multitude of early new knitter sins!

Have a great Gala! Don't be nervous, it will be great. I love mitts--mostly because it rarely gets really cold here and it is easier to drive with mitts than gloves.
