Another FO? January 21, 2007

Voila! The gauge-less, swatch-less, guess at the size, i-cord fingered photography gloves.

Orange, of course, as they’re for Ben. Started and completed while I was at work last night. The whole story begins with the fact I was 45 minutes early for work, and stopped off at Knitty Cat for a while. I ended up picking up 2 balls of Mission Falls 1824 wool in color #533. I didn’t know that the Mission Falls was superwash, but it is, and coupled with the fact that it’s a worsted weight made it perfect for what I wanted to do.

Armed with the ability to knit, and with Nona’s i-cord gloves tutorial/pattern thingy… I came up with these. They’re great because the 2 ‘fiddly fingers’ that you need to adjust everything on your schmancy camera are free, but the other fingers are nice and toasty warm in their little finger coverings.

There has been progress on the cardi, as well, as evidenced by this photo.

And I’ve started some photo gloves for myself this morning… I’m really enjoying the knitting of these. They’re a quick knit in worsted weight yarn, too. 😀

    Those gloves and the dragon make me want to learn how to knit. Right now the entire breadth of my skills includes hats and scarves – and the hats are never the right size.
