So my Mom emailed me last week and said – if you need a project to do – your Dad could use a pair of finger-less gloves. His hands get cold in the morning while he’s on the computer. So I talked with him about them, traced his hand and got some measurements.
I told Mom I would use washable yarn, so I picked up some Vanna’s Choice – Acrylic/Rayon in a medium brown tweed. I normally don’t use acrylic (I have to admit, I am a yarn snob), but so far this yarn isn’t bad to work with.
So I started out with 2×2 rib for the cuff and back of the hand, the palm in stockinette and the thumb gusset in purl. I got as far as where the thumb would be worked separately and realized the thumb gusset was too big and the cuff was longer than he wanted.
SO rrrrriiiiiiipppppppp…. and I started over.
This time around I decided to do a 1×1 rib instead, the rest the same. So now I’ve gotten 1 completed, and I plan to have my Dad try it on before I start the 2nd one.
(edited to add – he tried it on tonight and I need to add about 1.5″ to the finger section)
I’ve been more into listening to music this week and haven’t spent much time reading.
So what are you knitting/reading/listening to?
