Spring colours wool. For the fingerless gloves I used a pattern called 'Leaves', designed by Valentina Georgieva. It's a nice, easy pattern that I've used before. The idea for the headbands came from a young neighbour, who is moving to a very cold part of the country and has been making headbands to keep her ears warm. Yesterday I made two little headbands for another neighbour's daughters. They have a new baby sister, for whom I made a kimono shirt, using a pattern from The Purl Bee . The flower is Martha Ess's pattern, using folded rings. It neatly hides the velcro closure.
