My 100th Post!

My Tower of Gloves!

I have given many away but still have a few.

Just finished this pair out of Cascade 220 Tweed.
I used the Blackthorn pattern from Knitting New Mittens & Gloves by Robin Melanson.
I didn't add the little vest part as I had on my first pair and I used a 1x1 Rib for the cuff. I just love tweed yarn!

These are the same pattern without the Rib cuff and made out of Noro Kureyon. I love the natural rustic look and the beautiful colorway Noro creates.

Now my venture into Fair Isle Gloves! Winter Twilight Mitts
These are for my First Born. A free pattern from Knittingdaily Winter Twilight Mitts that I am working on making gloves. I hope it works and I don't have to frog them because my daughter doesn't like them as mitts. Time will tell.

These are for my Last Born and are also a free pattern, from Interweave Norwegian Gloves
(when you go to the link scroll down to find the pattern)
They are beautiful gloves but the pattern is a little confusing for my old brain.
I was able to finish the little finger after frogging it once and have started the ring finger.

The palm and the thumb gusset are also very beautiful.

The reason for the missing pictures is because Geocity is no more. I must wait for First Born to fix it.
