Gloves and Mitts

Have you looked at the Jacquie Lawson card? Click on it to see the animation.

As well as all the other cards on the site there is a lovely Advent calendar and my blog's little Advent gift is to send the calender to the first five people to comment (please leave your email address if you want a calendar). It will sit on your desktop where you can open one window each day to see a little seasonal animation.


Here are all the gloves/mitts I've knitted in the last few weeks although as time goes by I forget what I've made and some of them are given away before they can be photoed. I think a good New Year resolution for me would be to photo and describe my fos as they are completed. We'll see.

Andrea's Mitts
Drops Alpaca 0618 (Beige), 0506 (Dark Grey). Size M/L. 3mm to start then 2.5mm for the rest. I decreased an extra 8 stitches (to 34sts) at the top for a better fit.

Vinterblomster by Heidi Mork
P1050138

Drops Alpaca 7238 Olive mix,3969 Dark red mix,3650 red mix

2.5mm, 60 sts cast on. I had to do quite a bit of recharting to make this wool fit the pattern and I used a colour scheme I've seen several times on ravelry and I love it.



Oh yes - I nearly forgot this pair based on Strata from "Knitting New Mittens and Gloves" by Robin Melanson and Dancing at Lughnasa Gloves by Anne Carol Gilmour


P1050157

I used Drops Alpaca and 2.75mm needles

And I made a plain pure Cashmere pair in Teo's handspun for Richard's birthday - not photoed.
