That’s right. One glove of the fingerless variety is completed. I’m using the Rowan Felted Tweed that I got from Jenn and the pattern is kind of inspired by this Crystal Palace free pattern. I tweaked it significantly and added this Raveled Braid cable (p. 176) from my new Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns (thanks Claudia). Basically, I just measured my arm, figured my gauge and started knitting the tube, decreasing and increasing as the hand demanded. I need to hurry up and make the mate since I didn’t write down any of those pesky details. Am I the only one who has the silly idea that I’ll remember all those fiddly calculations without the help of paper and pencil?
Also, the other day I headed into SF to get a haircut and decided to swing by Imagiknit that Joanna has mentioned with fondness in past blog entries. I know, I’ve got no business in a yarn store…but since I was in the neighborhood it wouldn’t do any harm to look. Joanna is right, a nice store with a great selection. I also noticed it’s open SEVEN days a week…hmmm…But let’s cut to the chase shall we. Let’s see the goodies. I was VERY restrained and bought ONE ball of sock yarn and the latest Rowan mag. I know, it’s like I’m a saint. I did scope out the available colors of Rowan Felted Tweed "just to see". Saint I tell you.
