The Great Salt Lake is surrounded by basalt. This black igneous rock is in stark contrast to the white salt fields created by the receding lake. Sharp geometric rock rises above the salt bed creating a study in contrasts. And creating the inspiration for these randomly geometric gloves made from wool and cotton/silver. They are knit with SilverSpun yarn on the tips of the fingers making a conductive fabric that can be used on any touch screens. Perfect for those outings to the Great Salt Lake with your camera phone.

I live and work in Salt Lake City yet I am woefully ignorant about the Great Salt Lake. I am attempting to learn more about the lake that has recently inspired me…and to knit that inspiration. I hope you like the patterns I am creating.
