PATTERN DETAILS

There is a whole ideology behind the name for those fingerless gloves. Ready? Here we go! My hubby commutes every day and he asked for fingerless gloves so that his hands would be cozy since the moment he got into the car in winter. And here they are. Where(tm)s the ideology? you might ask. In zigzags! Every time he looks at them he will remember not to drive fast and skid when he(tm)s behind the wheel. And that he has a loving family to come back to.

I'm a mother, former teacher and a knitwear fanatic. I learned my first stitches from my mom when I was a teenager, but I gave up knitting quickly afterwards. Having my first baby brought back my passion with great impact and this time I also started designing knitwear for children and sometimes for adults. I live with my husband and two kids in Poland. My patterns can also be found on Ravelry on the Lete's Knits designer page or on my website letesknits.com.
