I’m very happy to announce the release of my newest pattern, Cèilidh Fingerless Gloves!
I’ve actually had this pattern, and another to be released soon, on the drawing board for a while. It all started with me playing around with what would eventually be this cable. I wanted something that gently curved and twisted, inspired by the dancers at a cèilidh.
Traditionally, a cèilidh in Scotland and Ireland was any kind of social gathering that brought together everybody from the community. Stories were told, food was eaten, and dances were held. Modern usage of the word places the emphasis heavily on the dancing, where groups come together in formal and informal settings to dance in groups. Then and now, however, it’s about bringing people together in the community, and this cable was inspired by that.
The gloves are the first of two patterns I designed to highlight this cable – the second will be coming out in the first week of November, so stay tuned for future announcements!
