More Gloves

Since Thanksgiving, I've finished two pairs of gloves -- both birthday gifts to people I love.

knitting:  gloves
The first pair was for my husband. They were a new edition of the pattern made to measure for him. Joan Goldstein drafts her pattern to your measurements, and will send new sizes for a small fee.

Custom-Fit, Sideways-Knit
Garter-Stitch Gloves
  • designed by Joan Goldstein
  • Knit using Mountain Colors Bearfoot yarn, 1 skein of the Moose Creek colorway (60% Superwash Wool, 25% Mohair, 15% Nylon, 350 yards, with some left over).
  • Knit on US 2 needles, 6 stitches/inch.
  • Yarn purchased at Camas Creek Yarn, Kalispell, MT.
  • Pattern available from Joan Goldstein, P O Box 2556,
    Bigfork MT 59911, h-jgold(at)bigsky(dot)net, for $8.
Joan (who gave me permission to post her contact information) asked me to say that this pattern is for experienced knitters.

The other pair I've finished is for my mom, for her birthday. I gave them to her last week at her belated but wonderful birthday party. They're of the same yarn as the gloves above, but the color is called Chinook. I used the pattern sized for my hands, with a couple of tweaks. This is the first time I've fiddled with this pattern's fit on my own, and I was pleased with the result.
