Experiment #2

Recognize the pattern?
Gloves! I've never knit them, so I came to a natural conclusion: find a fingerless mitten pattern to modify-- you know, just for a bit of a challenge.
I really had no idea what I was doing, but I think they're just fine. The first "crotch" between the pinkie and the ring finger is not-so-fabulous, but I figured out how to make the others come out o.k.

Cute! I just bought some fingerless gloves. Hats off to you for actually *making* them.

(pssst, pattern link needs fixing)

Debra said...

Link fixed! Thanks for letting me know.

Stacey said...

those are great!! are you going to cable up the fingers?

Jess said...

Very nice! I haven't knit gloves yet, but maybe this'll be the year.

Catherine said...

Great idea! My friend Amy did the same thing with Fetching last winter - you can check out her version on Ravelry under MamaGrouch or on her blog here: http://www.mamagrouch.com/static.php?page=cablehatgloves

Yours look great!

Very -- ummm -- Fetching! (Sorry.)

Did gloves once to prove I could (to myself, of course), but it'll be a while before I have any desire to do so again. Too fiddly with all those fingers. Talk about second sock syndrome -- how about 7th finger syndrome! (This IS where short DPNs do have an advantage over two circs, I have to say, even as a diehard 2 circ fan.) But it should go faster in Fetching-weight yarn, anyway.

Nice! Pretty yarn.

Now this is the first time I've had even the most remote interest in this pattern. Really cute idea! They look great. :D

Staci said...

Does the Fetching pattern happen to work out so that there are just the right number of ribbed sections to separate into fingers? (I've made so many pair of these, I should know!)

These are going to be so nice once winter rolls around! They look great!

Heh, I haven't made gloves yet either, but am thinking about some this winter. The color you're using looks great. : )
