This is the first fingerless glove I have tried. I took this photo before I started the fingers. I have actually finished the first glove and now will start on the second. The pattern is here at knitty.com and it has a mitten top. Each half finger was much easier than I expected. The trick is to twist the stitch at each finger gap. It worked pretty well for the first time. It is still a little holey at the finger joins so I must reinforce those areas. The thumb is worked like a standard mitten thumb, then you knit a separate mitten top and attach it to the glove. I think the pattern explains this much better so have a look at it. It really is fun to knit. I used Regia 4 ply on number 2 needles and the clove will fit a medium hand. I think if you have a smaller hand you will have to adjust the number of stitches.
Now for the really big news.......Oliver has been asked to be the "Dog on Thursday" by Natalie. I am so excited and will endeavor to take a nice portrait picture of him! He really is a very dignified fellow.......not! I am sure he will do his best to cooperate. He has told me that there are some hotties on the list and he wants to look his best. If you are not on Dogs on Thursday check it out here and enjoy. Anyone can join so have a look and join in on the doggie fun
I have almost overdosed myself on Christmas music already. I have it on in the car, at home and at work. We have XM radio and they have 4 or 5 stations that play nothing but Christmas music. I am in heaven. Also please click the player at the right and listen while you read. I have selected some of my favorites and will change them from time to time. They are really old time favorites that I grew up with but I will add some newer tunes too! Everyone have a lovely week.
