Child’s Fingerless Gloves

Posted on

My youngest sister has been asking me to make her a pair of fingerless gloves for the past few months, so I finally did. I hadn’t used double pointed needles to knit in round before, so this was a great opportunity for me to try it out.   I actually enjoyed using the double pointed needles to make the gloves, more than knitting it straight, folding it over and sewing it together.  I used just the basic two stitch rib at the beginning and end of each glove, with a technique for a button hole for the thumb.

Fingerless Gloves!

Posted on

I made a pair of fingerless gloves for one of my sisters’ birthday.  They have a basic rib and pico edge, I got the pattern from www.anniecholewa.com.  It has a very simple look.  I love how easy it is to knit together, I want to try it with several different ribs and stitch patterns.  Here are some pictures.

I also made another baby blanket for someone, who also bought some scarves.  I used a different type of yarn this time, Here are the pictures of the blanket.

Angora Yarn

Posted on

Okay, here’s what I’ve been working on! I have plucked enough fiber from Ringo (my angora rabbit) to spin.  I’m using a drop spindle. It’s basically a stick with a weight on it, and there are many versions of it.  It’s simple to use once you get the hang of it: spin, drop, and wind.  I won’t be blending or mixing the fiber. I want to see how 100% angora yarn will work for the products I have in mind and I really enjoy the color of Ringo’s fiber.  I am also trying some new patterns. I am currently working on some fingerless mitts.

Baby Blankets

Posted on

I just finished knitting a baby blanket, which I gave to a friend.  But I got some pictures of the blanket before it was sent it off.   I’m working on two different blankets, winter and summer.  The winter one is heavy like a comforter and the summer one light, but still warm.  I hope to eventually add Angora Rabbit wool to a blanket, but I’m still working on spinning it.  Hopefully, by the fall I will have new products made with some Angora.  I’ll post more about the more about it soon.
