Another Thing I Made While I Wasn't Blogging
I made these fingerless gloves this summer, too, while I was on Blog Vacation. They're sort of like Fetching, except everyone I knew who had made Fetching said the ends rolled, so I carried the cables through to the tips (and they have garter stitch thumbs, for what that's worth). Plus, I put in a trellisy cable to make sure the little buggers never, ever even thought about rolling. And they don't, they don't even think about it.
I like them a lot. I wear them in my office almost every day. They're much neater and prettier than my previous fingerless mitts were (the ones that my boss said made me look like The Little Match Girl). There's only one problem with the pattern: that trellisy cable doesn't have much give. Which I knew, but I ought to have made them a smidge larger to account for it. I can't really spread my fingers to type when I have them on.
I'm going to wash them tonight and block them a little harder and see what I can do about stretching out the ends a little more.
