I'm enjoying both the knitting and the yarn which is slightly sparkly and think the colour is lovely - what do you think?
Next my lovely Knotty gloves! or I should say glovE. well, I'ive got TWO but as I'm reknitting it I've actually got two right hand gloves! I'm glad I decided to reknit it; I was desperate I admit to use my "new" 9" sock circ.needle but really needed the 2.5mm for this and reknitting it has given me an improved fit as well as the chance to reduce by 2stitches to ease in the slight "fold" across back of hand that results - we think - from the stitch pattern change from rib/cable to st.st. I didn't do as was suggested in the end, and what I did do isn't quite "right" but a blind man would be happy to see the flaw in my theory (as my LateMum who was herself half-blind often used to say. mostly when I was fussing over 1/8" seam .. bah!)
anyway, I'm loving knitting this pattern and having knit it twice already, feel sure that my left hand/second glove will be perfection!!
|finished right hand glove, 2nd attempt|
The pattern is Knotty and the thread in which the "fold" is discussed can be read here.
here are some more pics showing the glove being knitted in various stages, I used the 9" 2.75mm circ for the first attempt, switched down to 2.5mm's and for the fingers/thumb I used DPN's.
