Hairy Hands

Anyone who is a fan of Father Ted will know the episode of the hairy hands where Father Jack drinks so much that his hands turn hairy. Well, here are my hairy hands.

It is my favourite go to pattern for gloves, quick gift or a great pattern to use up ball ends. It is from a 14 pattern booklet called Fade to Grey by Louisa Harding and I have made the hat, gloves, scarf, handbag and a cardigan from this book and I LOVE it. 

This Yarn was in a bag given to me. It is called Patons Siberia. "a winter blend of cotton and mohair" actually consisting of 77.5% acrylic, 12% cotton, 8.5% mohair and 2% nylon.
The label has that 1980's power shoulder look about it and I really was not sure what to do with it but these have turned out a treat.

Thanks for checking in, the weather has turned a little more Autumnal today so maybe we will be needing them. Jo x


  1. Love your fingerless gloves. Are you on Ravelry? Liz

  2. Hi Jo - was out tonight in torrential rain and was freezing - would have loved your gloves then honestly. They are just lovely and I will be looking out this pattern as they look like nice and easy gifts - have loads of birthdays coming up so these would be perfect. Thanks for a great post as always, you bring so many ideas to me
    Have a wonderful weekend
    Lots of love as always
