Fiber Dreams' matching Moonvine cowl
and Sunspots fingerless mitts make a very thoughtful
gift. A night-blooming morning glory? A bit of a contradiction,
but there you go. But oh! can’t you just imagine the pure white blooms
reflecting the light of a full moon? When planted on a trellis with any
day-blooming variety, you’ll have showy blossoms from night through
morning’s light. Lovely. Moonvine is knit in the round, starting
and ending with just a touch of garter stitch to help prevent curling.
Once past the edging, every row is a pattern row—if you want to rest,
you’ll need to take this into the garden when the morning light is full
on your blossoming vines.
Sunspots are a bright orange variety
of morning glory, another of my favorite flowers. Their small, brilliant
blooms greet the sun each morning with a dazzling display.
Mitts are worked in the round in an all-over pattern, resulting in mitts
that work equally well on either hand. Thumb gusset is worked in

Special note on
sizing: Using a fabric
measuring tape, measure the hand around the widest point. Subtract 1
inch (2.5 cm). Make the size that is closest to that measurement.
This stitch isn’t as stretchy as stockinette. The medium sized mitt
stretches to snugly fit a hand with a 7½-inch (19 cm) circumference.
