If I had any advice to give new knitters it would be to practice until you can work a fairly decent swatch without losing/gaining/dropping stitches. Make a few squares and use them for pot holders or whatever. Once you've gotten to that point, pick small easy projects that can give you a quick sense of satisfaction versus something long and monotonous like, say, a scarf. That's my opinion. There are lots of people who can work garter stitch for miles and never grow tired, I am not one of those people.

Good luck! Cheesy

Marnie, when you cast on those stitches between the fingers, do you slip them to the next needle without knitting them until the next time they come around?  What kind of cast on did you use?  I got a little confused when I tried it...
Thanks!

Aijay,
I'll try to describe how I CO the stitches as best I can, forgive me if it's a little hard to follow.

I'm pretty sure it's a "cable cast on" but I'm not sure that's the right term. When you get to the point where you wish to CO, stick your needle into the last stitch you worked, which is now on your right needle (I'm assuming right handed knitting). Pull a loop through this last stitch and place this new loop onto your right hand needle. That is one new stitch made. Now, for the second CO stitch, stick your needle through the new stitch and pull a loop through it, place it on the right hand needle and you are done, continue knitting remaining stitches.

Hope this helps.

I used Marnie's pattern for fingerless gloves - I just followed the pattern and it worked!  Thanks so much Smiley for the inspiration - I'm so jazzed - I tackled a knitting project I thought was completely beyond my ability, and found out it wasn't!

I did find that for my short square hands, I had to change the pattern a little bit on the second glove... plus, I'm not a fan of the self striping yarn, so I made my own stripes.  I'm going to redo the first glove to match the second one: I'm going to keep it so that the stripes are reversed (like the picture), so one hand has green fingers & the other has purple.

If anyone's interested, once I type up my notes on what I did, I'll post them.

They take a bit longer than any of my previous projects, but totally worth it.  Thanks again, Marnie - you inspired me!

LAWebChick,
Those look so great!
First off, Purple and Green is my fav color combo.
Second, the stripes look great.
Third, the way the two gloves have opposing stripes is super cute.
Yay!

I'm still working on a pair -- I've ripped out the fingers approximately 1000 times at this point.  I'd definitely like to see your notes!  The gloves look perfect.

Whoops - I forgot to check the "notify" box and didn't see your response.  Sorry Shocked Thanks for the compliment!

My fingers were the same as Marnie's, only I just went ahead and did it on the DP needles - one mistake on the double-knit and you've stitched your finger closed, yikes. My biggest trouble was picking up the stitches on the already created fingers - I definitely needed to tighten up the stitches between the fingers when I was done.

Anyway - I'll get my notes up soon!

Those gloves are really cute!
I crocheted some for a friend, except without the fingers

Yay for gloves!
