Powdered Sugar fingerless gloves are so light you almost feel like you have nothing on. They look great with the cuff scrunched down or pulled long. These are a joy to knit and give as a gift or keep for yourself. Bottom up, with a very simple knit and purl design, they are fast to make, and great for a beginner. These are a great way to use that special skein of cashmere you have tucked away.

My name is Taiga Hilliard and I am a yarn addict. I love designs that have a classic feel to them, but with a twist and am most happy when I get to work with cashmere, or other luxury yarns. When I do not have needles in my hands, I enjoy photography and reading.
I love top-down pieces, with very little finishing, and in the round patterns, which carries over into most of my designs.
