Signature Red Fox Fingerless Gloves and Knit City 2012

Our signature Red Fox Fingerless Gloves.

Autumn is seriously kicking up its heels here in Vancouver, Canada. Our seasonal rains arrived with a roll of fog mid-month and hasn’t let up since. The good news about this rather abrupt transition from the hot weather we had previously been enjoying is that it is perfect knitting weather. And some fun stuff has been in the works for the season, not least of all The Red Fox and Gown’s new signature Red Fox Fingerless Gloves knitting pattern.

The cozy gloves are warm and ready for new fall and winter adventures. The gloves can be made in two lengths, short and long, as well as in two sizes, s/m and m/l. The short version in m/l is shown.

Last weekend, despite the horizonal lashing rain, throngs of knitters descended on Vancouver’s first annual Knit City event. I was proudly helping out Krista of Rain City Knits at her booth. Her gorgeous yarns are now also available in a worsted weight in a range of colours. I spent the weekend imagining which colour I’d pick for my next pullover or cardigan.

Do you have any fall knitting plans? I have so much more to share with you, stay tuned!

Knit Cable Fingerless Gloves

I have a new knitting design sample ready in time for autumn – knit cable fingerless gloves! I knit my sample using Diamond Luxury’s Lima Peruvian Highland Wool and it was absolutely lovely to work with. The gloves feature matching cables on both the back of the glove and palm, incorporating ribbing at the ends.

You can custom order a woolen pair for yourself or as a gift through The Red Fox and Gown’s Etsy shop. Pattern coming soon…!
