>Red Black and Blue


thumb gusset

Most people that know me know my favorite colors are black, red, and white in that order. So when I finished my husbands hat I had scraps in my favorite colors my brain started to tick what could I make me that wouldn’t take much yarn.

I know fingerless wool mitts. OH YEAH!!! Happy dance on my part I knew what I wanted to make I just had to figure out the gusset in crease on the thumb and I was good to go. Did that decided I wanted to leave the white out I will probably make another glove with it but maybe a little different in style. Those that may not know I was a punker, mod, ska, alternative person in high school, junior collage and at the university. Life changed and I had kids and work and my clothes in general had to change to accommodate this part of my life a little. But there are still large amounts of that wardrobe in my wardrobe and they show up in bits in pieces here and there. This would have been a set of gloves I would have loved when I was younger still love them now as a matter of fact I hope they come out like the picture in my head so far so good. I don’t have a written pattern for this making it strait out of my head. I will probably make some tall gauntlets as well. These gloves are being made out of cashmere.

If you look close at the top photo you will notice I have a wide array of cabled needles from bamboo to aluminum to the oldest steel with a steel cable. I collect needles from thrift stores a lot so you never know what you will find.

fingerless glove start

On a side note my daughter ( who is just barely 12 years old) has finished one glove out of her fingerless glove set not bad for her second project the first was a wash cloth. I never posted it, it was just seed stitch an st stitch. She modified the pattern a little bit to add ribbing by the fingers. Her gloves are being made out of dark blue wool.

made by my 12 year old daughter

    >Your daughter has done well with her knitting. Making small items helps because she can see the results and wear them quickly. It gives them encouragement. Happy holidays.
