Finally, after a very long time (it seems to me), I have a finished object to show you! These are gloves that I made for DB. See the little red L at the bottom of the left hand glove? Why did I have to label them L and R? Because his fingers were so different from one hand to the other that I made the gloves unique to each hand. So I had to label them. They truly “fit like a glove”!
The yarn is Madelinetosh sock in color stovepipe. The pattern is a highly modified version of Bobbie by Julie Mueller. I made them more masculine. The stitch pattern is a half linen stitch and makes gloves just a little bit warmer than a plain stockinette stitch.
I started them on August 17. It’s now 2 months and 10 days later. Good grief. That seems like forever to make a pair of gloves. I’m still not knitting nearly as much as I used to. Stupid shoulder.
But I’m happy these are done and I’m sure DB will be happy to have them this winter. Maybe I’ll get around to making myself a pair!
