Pomatomus Fingerless Glove #1

October 30th, 2006

Watching Sleepy Hollow, great Halloween-eve movie. Yay for Johnny and Christina action. 🙂 I totally forgot that Christopher Walken played the headless horseman. Awesome.

I finished my first Pomatomus fingerless glove finally! I made them a bit longer than I had envisioned but a skein of Koigu goes farther than I thought.

As I said before I was copying the idea but I ended up doing my own thing to add in the thumb gusset. I put a couple markers in and increased, using yarnovers every row in pattern. I think it looks better than having regular thumb gusset increases breaking up the pattern. (You can click to make the pictures bigger- I tried to get good detail for people interested in modifying the sock pattern as I did.)

UPDATE: Just joined Bev and Scout’s happy swap… Anybody else want to exchange the goods to make mittens? You just have to knit a bag to put your gift in. That is the kind of swap even a space cadet like me can get behind. Great idea, guys. 🙂

    Congrats! They not only look stylish but also cosy and warm. I made the socks so maybe I should try some fingerless gloves – I have plenty of Koigu in my stash just waiting to be made into warm hand accessories!!!

    ooooh! i love them! what a great idea for this sock pattern. i have a friend that turned the crusoe socks from knitty into fingerless gloves too and they were such a hit. i’m sure that more people will make these as well 🙂
