well....heres what I came out with yesterday....a practice FO, if you will

As you can see my m1's need work....I'd never done one before, so I learned the easiest quick...she wasn't lying when she said there'd be a hole....

In addition to that, I just want less spacing between the stitches

moral of the story? smaller needles perhaps to go with my smaller yarn? I don't know. Suggestions would be lovely

The yarn Im using is Steinback Wolle (its Austrian...I love my LYS) It says itll get 4in with 33 rows and 25 st on US 3-4 needles

Sorry if that was hard to understand....I dont speak austrian

Woohoo!! I finally made a pair for myself in my favourite colour! This is my fourth pair now, I love this pattern. The beauty of it is that you can make the gloves as long or short as you like according to preference and yarn availability. I made these half the length recommended with 1 ball of Debbie Bliss Cathay on 4mm needles. I love Ysolda's patterns, I'm currently making the skull illusion scarf in Watford Football Team colours for my friend's son's 15th birthday. Anyhow, here are my gloves (Gothtastic):

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything and at the same time, are ones who never yawn or say a common place thing but burn, burn, burn, like yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars...

So I still don't have all my knitting skills down. I have two questions. I have knitted all the way to the cast off and now it says to CO stitches by the thumb. My question is what do I do about the yarn? To I cut it off from the cast off and tie it somewhere to the thumb? Or do I use the same yarn all connected and bring it down to the thumb?

My second confusion is when I go to knit the second glove....how do I do a reverse thumb gusset?

« Reply #64 on: July 16, 2006 12:33:46 PM »

you cut the yarn, you can weave it in now or when you're finished. Then you put the held sts from the thumb gusset onto your needles and cast on 2sts right next to the last stitch using new yarn.

To reverse the thumb gusset all you are doing is moving the the position of the gusset. Instead of knitting 4 sts before placing the first marker you would knit 15 sts, the number of sts after you knit after you placed the 2nd marker on the first glove. After that you just work the gusset in exactly the same way.

Thanks for the fast response Ysolda! My gloves are coming out great! I now understand the reverse thumb gusset but I am still confused about the finishing of the thumb. So when I cast off the main glove, I cut the yarn.....then do I attach the yarn (in a knot) next to the stitches by the thumb in order to cast on 2 new stitches on the waste yarn (which I will have moved onto my needle)? I guess my confusion is where does the yarn come from if I cut it off the cast off?Huh

Oh Oh! I just figured it out! It just took me a moment wrap my head around and visualize it. So I just leave a long tail to weave in later when I cast on. Got it! Time to finish them up! Thanks again for the explanation!!! I will post when I finish. I am actually making 3 pairs - one for me and two for my girlfriends (as a surprise) to go with our outfits when we go to a club at the end of the month.

these are wonderful! and I think I'm an idiot....when it says "sl 1, k1, yo, k2tog, k to last 4 sts, ssk, yo, k2" ssk is slip stitch, slip stitch, k2tog right? so wouldn't that take up the last four stitches, so you couldn't k2?  I'm confused and probably just being slightly pout of it...

I finally finished mine!! I did 3 pair for some gfs of mine when went to a club. Unfortunatley, I had no idea how to lace them properly and didn't bother since we were on our way to the club.
