I finished another pair of fingerless gloves. My hands get cold easily so I want to have several pairs to leave in my bags and other strategic locations. I think I am going to knit two more pairs – one in black, and one in light gray.
It’s a pain trying to take pictures of your own hand, so Cyd helped me model them:
I don’t think she likes them that much, they are a tad too big for her. These ones are going to be good for layering, I can wear liners under them. The pattern is Axis and the yarn is Bluemoon Fiber Arts BFL sport. I used a thinner yarn than the pattern calls for, so I added a real button band.
It’s day 5 of a heat wave and it’s too hot to be outside. The attempted natures walks of yesterday did not end well. Staying inside in the air conditioning meant I had some time to finish up a couple of projects. I finished up a hat and pair of fingerless gloves.
Hat is knit from my own improvised pattern, yarn is Blue Moon Fiber BFL sport color way Drucilla.
The only thing I had to do was weave in the ends. It took about 10 minutes of effort. Basic pattern is CO 90, join. K2 P1 for about an inch. Knit 4 inches (hat is now 5 inches long). Place markers every 10 stitches and decrease.
Gloves are Fruit Loop Gloves in Madeline Tosh Sock, color is Tart.
I started these last summer in Montreal, and I only had the thumbs to finish. Pattern modified to make them fingerless. I learned that it is really hard to take a picture of your own hand. Yarn in the picture is for the next problem that I am going to cast on.
