Knitting again!

You know that I must be sick when I don’t want to knit. After several bad months, I have improved enough that I’m knitting again–and it’s good! My first project was this hat, whipped up in two days. Now I’m making several items for Christmas gifts.

Fingerless gloves

Fingerless gloves are just the thing for girls and women who like to text. I’ve made two pairs recently. The red ones are my original design and are slightly smaller for a person with short fingers, like me. The teal pair will fit someone with longer fingers.

These two pairs will be on display at our subdivision’s arts and crafts fair in March.

Special order completed

I’m ready to deliver the special order from the bazaar several weeks ago for a pair of men’s fingerless gloves. I used a basic glove pattern and determined where to stop the fingers by trying them on my husband’s hands. The dark brown yarn should be practical.

Another reversible scarf

Here is another way to make a scarf reversible. One side is a mirror image of the other side. It is 60 inches long, knitted in a diamond pattern with a soft sport-weight yarn.
Note that the cabled scarf shown in a previous post has a slightly different pattern on each side.
