The Fingerless Glove Fanatics group on Ravelry is so addictive!
I am a Fingerless Mittens collector myself, I just love them… I have almost any colours, both knitted and crocheted, and I must admit that I love buying them at Accessorize, eheh
However, they’re also very fun to make and definitely a quick project. The only negative aspect, if you ask me, is that you need to make two, which in my case seems to negatively impact the “yay, a new project!!!” excitement as soon as I finish the first one.
Being a memeber of a Knit Along group definitely helps getting projects completed though, which is nice!
In April I have decided to cast on the Seeta Fingerless Gloves (pattern from Ravelry) and they turned out great. I am so happy with the result and I can’t wait for the cold season to come back so that I can wear them (not that it actually ever went away… today it is raining dogs and cats and wearing a scarf wouldn’t be inappropriate).
Here is the usual Ravelry button, click on it to be redirected to the original pattern 🙂
And here are my lovelies. I have taken the pics before having completed the thumbs, which is my personal pet peeve when it comes to knitting gloves, if you ask me. Anyway, they’re finished, blocked and looking beautiful in my drawer now.
The pattern required some modifications though, cause IMHO the sizing is totally off. If you cast on the indicated 30 stitches, and have a correct gauge, you end up with a wrist circumference of 12 cm/4.7 inches, which doesn’t seem to fit any adult female wrist, or at least didn’t fit mine!
