Fingerless Glove Update


The photos have gone from pink to orange! I'll get it right one day.

One thumb down and four fingers to go! I have a few holey areas but I think they can be fixed. I've decided these will be my everydayeverywhere gloves so a problem here or there is not critical. I kept the thumb short so I could still use the space bar and touchpad on the computer without any problems. I was very nervous they would not fit but so far so good!

I finally ordered Glampyre's One Skein Wonder (OSW) pattern today. At first I wasn't sure I liked the pattern but I've seen so many completed OSW on blogs and Flickr.com that I must make one, too!

Where ever did you get the pattern for 'fingerless glove' it is just what I'm looking for? It looks easy to knit that's what I need. Can you help?

I am using the Weekend Knitting book by Melanie Falick. I purchased it at Michaels Arts & Crafts with a 50% off coupon. It is a simple pattern of knitting, purling, picking up stitches for the thumb, and increasing stitches between the fingers with a loop.

Free fingerless glove patterns (minus the mitten covers) can be found at:
