My dad has a friend who used to host a morning TV show here in the Toronto area. This led to him having to get up at some ungodly hour each and every weekday so that he was bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to greet the city with a smile on his face when the show went live to air at 5:30 am. (All of a sudden... the time that your alarm clock is set at doesn't seem so gross now, does it?)
While he never complained about the hours he had to keep, he did comment on one occassion that November was always the most difficult month of all to drag himself out of bed.
Are you finding that these days?
Because despite our warmer than average November temperatures this year... I know that I certainly am.
Lucky for me... I just cast off these super-luxe fingerless gloves this week, and somehow, having these on my hands makes walking out the front door and into the frost covered universe just a little easier to bear.
Don't believe me?
If I told you that the yarn I used contained alpaca, camel, silk AND cashmere, then would you???
I thought so.

Like... cozy beyond your wildest dreams.
The ultimate in luxury.

Early Morning Info
Yarn- The Fiber Company "Road to China Light" in the shade "Smoky Quartz", 2 skeins (BUT BARELY! Had I cut back on the arm length just a bit, I would have easily gotten the pair out of one skein)

So for all of you who are looking to treat yourself a little in this otherwise rather dreary month... then get on it. Cast on and see what the fuss is all about.
Your boss will surely notice how brightly you are shining in the midst of a month where your co-workers are surely all asleep at their desk.
