Life surely gets busy but I’ve found some time to still squeeze some knitting in.
I’ve been attempting to use up my stash before purchasing more yarn and so that’s been tricky because I’ve got a lot of single skeins!
Well, the perfect project recently came along for the one Bernat Soft Boucle in the colorway of Natural skein that I had! Continue reading
I finished a pair of fingerless gloves for my husband last week. This was my own pattern and to get accurate measurements before casting on, I had my husband trace his hand on a sheet of paper ( and crossed my fingers things would add up!). Overall results is that this will be a go to pattern for future fingerless gloves for any guy ( or girl). The ribbed stitch pattern I used gave these gloves plenty of stretch yet they also fit snuggly. No one likes a pair of gloves that are too thick.
My husband can wear these quite often and I’m pleased that they’ll give warmth without over heating whether video gaming, board game playing, driving the car, going for walk, strumming the guitar, texting ,or whatever else. Fingerless gloves are a quick knit and make for a great gift (especially with the Holidays sneaking up on us).
If you loom knit, you can purchase this pattern from my Etsy shop!
