Hi everyone,

I have project ADD and I think this is my first completed object for myself.



The glittens made from one skein of broken Morehouse Merino 3 ply in Raspberry and about 1 foot of a second (normal) skein, knit very tight with size 5 Crystal Palace double pointed needles. However, I have tiny hands.

The broken skein didn't have any breaks so I think the yardage was off. I definitely could have made the glittens with one skein but I panicked after I made the cap for my left mitten--I thought, "This little pile of yarn couldn't possibly be enough for the mitten cap for the right hand." I tried knitting the second cap on a Tuesday night so I knew if I needed to go to the Union Square Farmers Market to pick up a second skein, except I was distracted and didn't finish. I went to the Farmers Market anyway and luckily found a matching skein. I can make a matching hat now or another glitten when I lose one of these.

The pattern was cobbled together from http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/urban.htm and http://www.eden.rutgers.edu/~kfairchi/fingerless%20gloves.html.

These have been done for a while but I finally finished weaving in ends tonight. I may even be able to wear them tomorrow--it's supposed to be about 45 degrees in NY (it was 70 last week).

Yay, a finished project! Cheesy

I like how you say "when I lose one of these" not "if".  You're being honest.   Cheesy

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?
