Fingerless gloves

This week I have made a start on something that has been on my to-do list for over a month. I have several Christmas markets coming up and fingerless gloves have been popular at previous events so I wanted to make some more.

Obviously they need to be strokably soft, so I decided to use some hand dyed alpaca I had left over from another project and combined it with some lovely merino for the green and orange pairs.

Here they are after laying out the fibres.

And once dry:

I also made a “rainbow” pair from merino, they are a little bit shorter than I planned but are quite wide so will suit larger hands.

And I started this piece too – can you guess what it is yet?

  1. Yes, I confess that is why I like fingerless gloves too – can't bear to be parted from my phone! 😉 You know me too well Ruth, it is a pod but there is something a little bit special about this one….
