Do you like the gloves I've been knitting? I am telling you, this is t-h-e perfect knitting project.
You only need a ball or so of yarn and they are a really fast knit so you wont find them lurking in the bottom of your knitting bag come the spring because you lost interest. I think I completed these in about a weeks worth of lunch breaks!
In a recent interview Jane Richmond said that her advice for beginners was to 'choose a pattern that is just a little out of your reach, a pattern that will teach you something new' and I think I would totally agree with this thinking after tackling this Knitty glove pattern.
With just the knit and purl stitches under my belt and some help from YouTube I was able to complete these with not too much trouble even though Id never done cables or knitted on double point needles. I will admit I had to start over a couple of times but with only 15 stitches on each needle it wasn't too heartbreaking to rip out a few lines.
I hope you like the Fetching gloves as much as I do. If you have any other glove patterns you would like to share feel free to leave a link in the comments section. I think I'm a little bit in love with knitting gloves right now.
