3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: fingerless gloves with pattern on: December 19, 2007 04:38:08 PM
I knitted them using 4 ply merino baby wool. I'm not sure what the label is, but its unlikely that the wool is avaliable anywhere other than NZ or Australia anyway.
The baby wool is softer than normal wool, which is great if your skin is sensitive to yarns.

the gloves are knitted kinda flat. They start to fold together with the first finger. When all the knitting is done you only need to stitch up the side seams and the fingers are already attached. I was going to knit the Knucks pattern too, but found this one instead, and it works well.

The stripes were knitted in rows of 4, which works well with the increasing of the thumb.

I have big hands and made myself the larger pattern. Next time I might try the smaller size and just using a larger needle size for more fitting gloves.

Thanks heaps for the great comments  : )

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / fingerless gloves with pattern on: December 17, 2007 02:02:53 AM
I knitted these 2 pairs of gloves with silver metallic thread through them. The stripped blue and grey pair are the large size. They are also my first ever completed knitting project. The smaller purple gloves are a birthday present for my friend, even though its totally the wrong time of year (its summer over here).

The silver thread was just knitted in with the wool. It needs to be pulled tight every now and then. I found joining the yarn back up abit confusing at first, but it gets easier to figure out. Heres the pattern. Enjoy!

5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Re: New Zealand only swap? Energy? When? on: August 03, 2007 09:35:57 PM
for me its about celebrating and focussing on women rather than it having anything to do with men

I consider myself to a radical/socialist feminist and think that  legal equality doesn't mean that women aren't still oppressed by the sexist society and system we live in. so crafting, say, a cool tshirt stencil commenting on all the degrading advertising of women or a womens right to choose, or something.

could be cherishing your mother, or daughter, girlfriend(s) etc
dunno if that helps or not.
