I started this thing last month where I am attempting to make a pair of gloves (or other knitted item) for each of my friends. The rule is that I try to design something that fits their personality. The first item on the list for this month was mittens for my friend Beth. Besides being in my wedding and also taking all my wedding photographs (she's amazing) Beth runs her own photography/videography business while doing modeling on the side. To put it simply, she's awesome.
While I'll never know every single thing about my friend Beth, I do know she is super creative. I also know her favorite color combo is orange and purple, and that she loves tribal designs. Those are the pieces of her personality I tried to focus on when creating her gloves. I knew she'd want some type of fingerless gloves, because of how much she uses her hands when working. I texted her two ideas (for half-fingers, vs. fingerless) and let her choose.
Beth, I really really hope you like your gloves! You are an amazing person, and I love you so much! I love seeing your life unfold day by day and watching you worship God. Never forget how special you are!
The great thing is...if you knit, and you like Beth's gloves, I've created a PDF knitting pattern for download on Ravelry so you can wear them too!
If you are wondering what I've got next on my needles...you'll just have to wait and see! I have a lot of great friends and so many ideas...
