Beg. Row, Pt. 2 -- Fingerless Gloves

Sereknitty72 wrote: "There is a pattern in Holiday Knits by Sara Lucas and Allison Isaacs for "tipless" gloves that looks pretty easy. I say this because I contemplated making them (so that means I read that pattern and deemed the difficulty within my crazy range) but never got around to it...They look cute though and you could probably just knit shorter fingers..."

What I liked about the fingerless gloves (a.k.a. wristwarmers) I found on Knitty was that they are completely fingerless, LOL. Here's the link:

I'm not sure why they're in the "tangy" level of Knitty difficulty (aside from requiring double-pointed needles), except that you have to make a buttonhole in each one (for your thumb).

The pattern has a link to buttonhole directions, and I did learn to make my first buttonholes here, no problemo.

More from Sereknitty: "Also, have you ever looked into knitting with the "Magic Loop" instead of double pointed needles? That's what I use for all of my socks now and it's a pretty humane process..."

You're not the first person who's told me it's a good thing, so I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the tip!

Happy spring and fluffy bunnies,

p.s. Finished the baby blanket last night. It has the Chinese characters for "life" on it. (If anyone actually knows Chinese, you'll have to tell me if I got them right or not, tho it's a little late now.) Promise to post pic as soon as it's washed!

I just stumbled on your blog thanks to the article in the Spring Knitty - read all the archives and have now bookmarked your blog. It's very thoughtful and I love your cats and allthe info - sorry to hear about Copernicus - he was beautiful. I hope this comes through, as I don't (yet) have a blog. My dear sister will be getting some llama fleece soon, so I shall help with sorting (did that with the alpaca she got last fall) and hopefully learn to spin this year. Regards, Joan K in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
