Parks are special places which I love to explore and when moving about it’s easy stay warm. If I stop to enjoy (and often photograph) a vista, my hands often get chilly. So I designed this fingerless mitt with a simple purl column to provide subtle interest for both the knitter and the mitt. The name is a nod to Glacier Lake National Park in Montana’s Rocky Mountains that influenced this gorgeous colorway. It is also a nod to New York State where I live -- there’s a Bowman Lake State Park in Oxford, New York!

Thank you to Artyarns for the generous yarn support and Fabulous Yarn for the idea.

Looking for additional sizing? Please send me a message, email, or use my contact form and let me know. Please note that palm circumferences beyond 8.5 in/ 21.5cm will require more than 1 skein. I am working to expand without the instructions being difficult to follow.
