Before I get into the gloves, a quick progress update on this week’s project
This is four days, three balls of yarn, fifteen repeats, and twenty-five inches long. Slightly over halfway. I’ve really got to get going to get this done and blocked by four o’clock Saturday.
My mom asked me to make her some gloves. About six months ago, when it first got cold. So i started out to make some from my own pattern. The catch was, there had to be fun fur on the main part of the hand, and nowhere else. Two failed attempts later, the fur was moved to the cuffs.
I then tried the Ramona Flowers Fingerless Gloves which seemed like they would be pretty awesome. They are worked from the fingers down. But joining the fingers was where it went wrong. I was using doubled sock yarn instead of the worsted, and the hand was just huge and floppy. I might try these again from actual worsted weight, but a little down the road.
I love the honeycomb cable on the top.
I worked in the ends as I went, so the only weaving my mom had to do was at the ends of the fingers. That’s the deal, she has to weave in the ends when I make her something. Works for me, because I hate weaving ends.
