Fingerless Gloves in White

Posted in Knitting with tags , , , on December 2, 2009 by annatestadoro

I’ve been meaning to put these fingerless gloves on here for about a year. I made them for a colleagues mother last year, can you believe it? Last year? He did tell me that his mother had put them on the other day, as it’s getting colder. Yes, it definitely is. Even I, who am always really warm, am now getting cold. Especially when I’m outside. Anyway, here they are. I used a pattern from Garnstudio and it was such a pleasure to knit, really easy and quick.

I remember when I started making them I took them apart a few times as I thought they weren’t going to be big enough. That probably has something to do with the fact that my colleague didn’t tell me that they were for his mother and not for him. Oh well, I got there in the end.

Fingerless Glove for Warm Fingers

Posted in Knitting with tags , , , on April 14, 2009 by annatestadoro

I finished these greyish coloured gloves for a friend and colleague some time ago, could have been before Christmas. The pattern is another great one from the folks over at Garnstudio.

The fingerless gloves were surprisingly easy to make. I remember making some gloves when I was at school and the fingers were particularly complicated. I might attempt gloves again, now that I know that they are not actually that difficult to make.

My friend chose to colour, which I think works really well, as it can be work with any other colour. I think they’ve worked out quite well and my friend really liked them. I’ve also made another pair for a friend for her birthday (pictures to come later) and I’m just finishing another pair in white that a friend is going to give to his mother.

I’ll try making some proper gloves, I’m sure there are some nice patterns on Garnstudio.

Keeping Your Hands Warm

Posted in Knitting with tags , , on December 30, 2008 by annatestadoro

This year I was lucky enough to make some money off our Secret Santa at work. I made £5 by knitting a pair of wrist warmers for a colleague who had to give a present to another colleague who is always cold. Perfect present, don’t you think?
