Not Quite Two Left Feet!

My last pattern was the February Beret, a beret inspired by EZ's February Baby Sweater. It seems that I am so in love with the look of the baby sweater that I have not been able to knit anything without some garter, and the lovely gull lace pattern.

I chose a skein of SockPixie Merino Sport, in a beautiful muted solid plum color. It is my first pattern using this yarn. It is very soft and lofty. I love the stitch definition.

Over the last few weeks, I have been getting emails from you asking for a fingerless glove pattern, so I decided to design a pair of fingerless gloves.




So there we are, a long circular needle, some soft yarn, a spoonful of garter stitch, a pinch of gull lace, a great Doris Day movie, a warm blanket, and what do you get? 2 right gloves!

The sad thing is that I was almot done with the second one when I finally realized my mistake.
The upside is that the pattern for the right glove is perfect! The other upside is that I can't seem to get tired of knitting the gloves as I love the pattern so much!

If all goes well, and I don't end up with a fingerless glove with two thumbs, the pattern should be ready this week!

I'm looking forward to see the fingerless gloves finished. I love the picture with the orange in the background.

Dear Monika,

Thank you for your comment. I can hardly wait to be done, so that I may share the pattern with all of you.
