Persephone's Folly

When Persephone ate those three pomegranate seeds, she broke her mother Demeter's heart. Hades tricked her into eating food from the underworld, forcing Persephone to return to the underworld for 3 months each year. Every time she does, Demeter grieves and stops blessing the world with warmth and abundance by plunging the world into a bitter cold (Winter) as she despairs. So what does this have to do with crafting you might be wondering? Well over the weekend I finished my fingerless gloves!


With these beauties, I'll survive the coldest office or dreariest of Winters!

The details:

Now to wash, block and then use them so much I'll need to make another pair!

Thanks ladies! They were really fun to make. And yes Lisa, I would be terribly honored if you used my photo on your Ravelry page. Now I just wish they'd hurry up and send me an invite!

Hi TeAntae,
Sorry to bother you - I'm your mother's no-sheep swap pal and as she's in Europe I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions about her preferences. Please drop an email to
secretfnordpal AT gmail DOT com
if that's okay.
Thanks!

You look thrilled to be finished with those. And they look great! :D Funny though, the yarn seems like it would match your Queen Bee socks from earlier. Happy Knitting.
