I happened to mention in an email to my sp10 spoilee that I was trying to pluck up the courage to start a pair of fingerless gloves. It was then that I realised that I really had been avoiding it for far too long. Having skim-read the pattern I wanted to use, I had retreated rapidly to sampler squares thinking “I’ll never manage those!”
The broad street mittens pattern is well thought out, clearly explained and includes tips for making the gloves fit properly at the base of the fingers. The drawback for me is that its instructions are for using dpns – and I hate those with a passion! So, last night I read the pattern a lot more closely to try and figure out how it would work on circulars. And just to make the cat’s cradle that little bit more tangled, I’m gonna try this knitting both gloves at once with the magic loop method . Hey, if the knots are gonna happen they might as well be spectacular 😉
I’m gonna cast on tonight. Wish me luck!
