Every year I set myself a crafty goal. Last year it as hats (both knitted and sewen) and the year before knitting socks and sewing a shower cap. (all achieved - socks well and truly!)
My goal this year was to knit myself a pair of fingerless gloves!
Even since my sister-in-law Tracey (who lives in Switzerland!) sent me some gorgeous wool, I have been looking for a project to knit something with it! I did start a cowl, which is still on some needles, but I think I may un- do it now and knit another pair of these!
Cables are a big step up for me! I attempted them a year ago when I had tonsillitis (yay no more getting that again!), but somehow they turned out back to front???!!! It is on a cowl which I still wear and kinda looks cool both inside and outside out!
Anyway I sat down this morning and several hours later I had finished my first glove!
I am stoked - so happy and delighted with myself for how well they have turned out! And it was easy! I did have to teach myself the backwards loop cast on method too, but a you tube video sorted that out !
I think this pattern might be knitted over and over again as they would make a great gift!
I just need a wee stash of 10 ply wool....
The pattern is on Ralvery - look under Toshette fingerless gloves.
I am part way thought the 2 nd glove - I will let you know if a 50gram ball does a whole pair.
