As the days get shorter, so too is the temperature dropping, making it increasingly chilly in the mornings, especially on the water. The solution, pogies! They’re mitts made especially for rowing; they have holes on one or both sides to slip over the oar. The result, mitts you can wear over your oar, allowing your hands the same amount of control, but with a bit of warmth! I found this pattern from RowNW, which they offer for free here. It’s also available on Ravelry.

First Pogie Ever

So far I’ve only finished the one pogie, but still one nonetheless. One step closer to warm hands in the morning.

Outside Hand

Now I just have to knit faster so I’ll have them both in time for the next chilly morning.
