The Third FO of 2009

John's gloves are done! All the ends have been woven in and they've had their picture taken. They fit him well and he likes them. That's all that really matters, isn't it? Actually, I'm very happy with how they turned out.

The yarn is Jarbo Garn, fingering weight. The basic glove pattern is from Ann Budd's "Handy Book of Patterns" and the cuff pattern is my own design.

Now I get to design a pair for me.


  1. Wow, they are really lovely. I'm so glad he appreciates your gift too. My hubby would never use anything I knit him. He worried about causing damage to it, whatever it was. I used to get so frustrated! It's so nice when you make the effort that it is enjoyed and appreciated.

    Take care :)

  2. They are lovely, Ev, I'm impressed (especially as I've never tackled gloves before)!

  3. Very handsome gloves! John had better wear them with pride! Heheh...

    I still worry that fingers (trying to knit them, that is) would drive me to distraction - and maybe even whiskey!

  4. Nothing wrong with a bit of whiskey, Robbyn. ;)

    If you can knit socks, you can knit gloves. They're just tiny socks... without heels!
