Fingerless Glove for Warm Fingers

I finished these greyish coloured gloves for a friend and colleague some time ago, could have been before Christmas. The pattern is another great one from the folks over at Garnstudio.

The fingerless gloves were surprisingly easy to make. I remember making some gloves when I was at school and the fingers were particularly complicated. I might attempt gloves again, now that I know that they are not actually that difficult to make.

My friend chose to colour, which I think works really well, as it can be work with any other colour. I think they’ve worked out quite well and my friend really liked them. I’ve also made another pair for a friend for her birthday (pictures to come later) and I’m just finishing another pair in white that a friend is going to give to his mother.

I’ll try making some proper gloves, I’m sure there are some nice patterns on Garnstudio.

Something that’s Mine!

I’ve finally finished a cardigan for myself. Even though the wool was quite thick, but it still took a lot longer than baby clothes to finish. After all baby clothes are so much smaller.

The pattern is a great Drops pattern. I also really love the colour and I think it looks really nice, but that’s just my opinion.

It was easy to knit the cardigan and it was all knitted in one piece, which makes it nice as it’s without seams. The pattern on the finished piece looks good as well and it was nice and easy to knit.

I was able to use some old buttons that used to be on a waistcoat I made years ago. I basically wore it out, but didn’t want to throw the buttons out, as they’re really nice.
