What IS that?!
Why, they’re the fingers to Knitty’s Knucks!
I mentioned in another post that my hubbin’ needed some gloves for the upcoming winter. He drives a forklift outside on and off through the day. It’s not cold yet, but I figured I’d get a jump on it so he didn’t have to remind me in a month.
Pattern: Knucks, from Knitty by Pamela Grossman
Yarn: Lion Wool in Cadet Blue
Needles: Size 4 dpns
Time: October 7-October 9 (on and off)
Alterations: The pattern calls for dk weight yarn. Lion Wool is technically considered a worsted weight, but it really felt like more of a dk/light worsted. The fabric created with the size four needles wasn’t too stiff so I decided to go with it. Since my hubbin’ has really large hands it worked out perfectly because the yarn wound up being just a tiny over gauge.
A close up, just because I love the way the picture came out:
Next up on the needles? The Hedgerow Coat from Interweave Knits Fall 2007. My friends birthday is coming up in early November and I had her pick out a pattern she liked from half a dozen of the latest issues. I hope I’m able to get it done before the 5th of November!
