Dad doesn't want socks this year by Helen Knits

Happy Birthday Dad for yesterday - hoping that the present has arrived now and this isn’t a spoiler ;)

My Dad usually requests socks for his birthday, but this year (the 5th year since I started knitting his gifts) he requested fingerless gloves. I really hope he loves these gloves. I designed them especially to fit him from a template of his hand and a damaged old glove of his, so yes they are a bit big on me!

These pictures were taken at Broadway, parking in the picnic place and walking away from the tower. It was far harder than anticipated because the snow hasn’t melted at the top of the hill, instead it has drifted and compacted, becoming quite a slippery obstacle course! We have been doing quite well at getting out and about every week, but haven’t really written about them. Suffice to say they are happening and we haven’t missed a week yet
