My blogger friend Sharon at High Prairie Farmgirl was talking about taking up knitting again and posted a picture of some lovely knit fingerless gloves as inspiration. I asked her about them and she turned me on to AllFreeKnitting.com. What a great site! I looked through all the fingerless glove/handwarmer patterns and decided I would like to make these.
I used to knit quite a bit but haven't so much lately. I have made everything from socks to sweaters to afghans (yep, I like to knit afghans) and have even made mittens before. I really like this pattern because they are knit flat and then seamed together, as opposed to knitting in the round.
The moss stitch adds some nice texture too.
I was really pleased with how quickly they knit up, even with my rusty skills! I was able to finish them in two days and that was knitting in between batches of bread! You can find the pattern here.
I'm looking forward to wearing my new fingerless gloves on our morning walks. :)
