OvO Owls

Owls flew to me. Since "the owls are not what they seem," 
this time occurred in the form of fingerless gloves.

Weez's Mitts

I thought I would give Mitts a try since I've done a little bit of everything else. I used Deborah Norville's SERENITY chunky yarn. If you do decide to use a different yarn than your pattern calls for, be sure to do your swatch ahead of time. I didn't bother to do that, and yes, these are beautiful, but just a tad too big. 
Live and learn! :)

Can you help this knitter?

I received this question this evening from a knitter who is having trouble with knitting a fingerless knit pattern. Can you help this knitter?

Has anyone made the smocked fingerless mitts by Tonia Barry from the 60 Quick Knits book?
I am stuck on a step and I need help figuring out what to do next.
On page 64, thumb placement, it says to work sts 1-4 twice which would make 8 stitches and put them on waste yarn, and then slip these 8 sts back to LH needle, then with working yarn, work sts 1-4 twice more. Continue to follow chart to rnd 8, then repeat rnds 1-8 once more, then rnds 1-4 once. Work in k2, p2 rib for 2 rnds. Bind off in rib.
Now my problem: When I've made mittens in the past, once I put stitches onto waste yarn I leave them there until I have finished the hand and go back and pick them up and make the thumb. This pattern seems to say that I work the 8 stitches for two times more and then continue on with the rest of the row following the chart. And also, why would I have 16 stitches when I begin the thumb?? Live sts? Not something I know either. If someone can help me figure this out so I can finish the mitt I will be so grateful. I love the pattern, it looks awesome. I am just not able to finish it as I have tried almost everything and don't know what is right. Thank you.

Handspun Cashmere Wristlets

I finally finished the knitted wristlets I'd been planning using this free pattern. The yarn is so decadent, it was handspun by me using 100% cashmere top which gave me 150 yards of yarn in 2 ounces.

The pattern itself was super simple and easy to make. The construction is very easy, it's knit flat and then seamed. I only had enough yarn to knit 4 repeats but they are the perfect size and super luxurious.

Another knit down and tossed into my christmas gift pile!

On the hunt for new patterns!

Hi All! I was rummaging around on the blog today, cleaning up and organizing and realized the pattern links list was a little stale.

I'd love to hear from you, do you have a great fingerless mitt pattern that you love??? Leave a link to it in the comments and I'd love to get it added to our list.

People from all over the world visit this blog and the #1 thing they really appreciate is the great list of patterns.

Brrr! It's getting cold outside!

Last night as I was out walking boy it was getting cold! My hands were freezing and it got me thinking about fingerless mitts and what I wanted to knit this fall season.

Anyone else up for a knit along? We could have a few patterns as part of the knit along and I'm considering designing a pattern too (top down so we can use up every inch of yarn!)

Let me know if you're in - and if you have a particular pattern you want to use!

Your hostess,

Joanne d'Arc

That is almost like Joanne d'Arc.
That was my association for the comment by knight "Like princess, like armor."
As for this, they immediately seen through the eyes of the imagination, as soon as I started to do this sleeves.
Nevertheless, I am very very proud of them ^ ^
They are the nicest in my opinion made so far, perhaps because most get in my taste-this time with crochet lace and nice color.

I think if that does not conjure up a similar, because all of this mine are not even started, and I have more ideas.

This time I used the google translator, so please forgive me any errors ^^'

My fingerless mittens

Hi! ^^
I love knitting and crocheting, and other handmade, so for this fall I made some pairs of new, colorful mittens. They're for other person but I would like to make another for my own ^^
I hate cold days... brrrr.

What do You think? ^^
btw. "śliweczka" in polish means plum.

Edit ^^
This pattern was born in my mind while doing it.

I using needle nr 5 [5mm], and various violet and purple acrylic yarns- Oliwia, Yarn Art and Sonia.

Pattern Stitches:
K1, P1, Ribbing [for cable]

Row 1:
*k1, p1; rep from *= 28 "chains"
Repeat Row 1
12 more times.

Change the color [yarn]. This is time for cable.
You can find easy pattern for simple cable ^^

And after you'll knitting this part [ex. 16-20 rows] it's time for repeat row 1, until it'll have proper size- I repeat row 1 5 more times.

It's too hard for describe, because my English is not good enough... :(

Good luck! ^^'

Pomatomus Fingerless Gloves...

Hi there! I noticed several people were looking for the Pomatomus fingerless gloves pattern - here is the link, from the Winter 2005 issue of Knitty online knitting magazine. It was originally a sock pattern, but others have adapted it to a fingerless glove pattern. One example is here, and another is available in Ravelry as a free download.

The pattern is also available as Nereid Fingerless Gloves.

First Attempt!

This was my attempt at a fingerless mitt. I went a little overboard. It is a very simple knit, however, I spun the yarn myself from the shedding from my Great Pyrenees, Sammie! It is very soft and surprisingly, does not shed!

This is my first attempt at a cable. I think it came out fine, but next time, I think I'll check my gauge first. It is a little large for me!

I raise Shetland Sheep and spin yarn, so I think it appropriate for my next fingerless mitts I will make with my own wool! I'll keep you all posted!

Where is everyone?

Just took a little peak at this blog and no one has posted in a long time!  I get busy in the summer making and selling jewelry, but now that it is cold I started to knit again.  I am making socks right now.  Why don't we all check in and let everyone know what we are doing.
