...one to go. Or 7, or 9, or however many more I end up making for other people! ...I made the mistake of bringing my knitting to church last night, and I got requests. But I've got one glove/mitt of mine done. I guess it's more of a mitt, because it doesn't have fingers at all. I still need to weave in the ends, so I suppose it's not completely done!
I looked around for some more patterns today. If I can knit with dpns and there are more fingerless glove patterns out there I'll definitely make some more! As long as the patterns call for worsted-weight or not much thinner than that, I'm good.
Mom asked me if I could make her some socks; I told her if she could find me a worsted-weight pattern I would! I'm still not up to very, very thin sock yarn, and dpns! My fingers are just too big to deal with that...even on straight needles my fingers cramp up terribly if I use thin yarn.
I like these ones for a fancier pattern: http://cidermoon.com/cm0125.html#
These ones are similar in pattern to what I'm making, but somehow split at the wrist, maybe, and then buttoned up: http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/mikado-buttonup-gloves.html
These are very long, but they have a cable pattern running down them: http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_4155601,00.html
These are made with bulky yarn, so they'd be even thicker: http://adventuresinlifeandknitting.blogspot.com/2007/09/good-news-and-more-good-news.html
These have some nice cable pattern too: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html
And they come in a guys' version: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTdashing.html
And these have fingers, plus you can come up with some sort of phrase that doesn't require more than eight letters and personalize them! http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTknucks.html
And a whole blog full of fingerless glove that people have knit: http://fallfingerlessmitts.blogspot.com/
Well, that's all for tonight...
