Middle granddaughter requested knit gloves for Christmas. They are going to be a little late – you wouldn’t believe how long it takes to knit all those fingers! I don’t feel I ever need to knit another pair, and if it hadn’t been a request from a special person, I wouldn’t have done it this time, either.
The yarn is old, and from stash – the label says Schaffhauser Wolle, Soirée, a 75% wool/25% silk blend. How do I know it’s old? The price on it is 25 cents! The pattern is Cassandra’s Gloves, from a Jane Austen Knits magazine, 2015. If I ever need a lightweight pair of mittens, I’d use this pattern and consolidate the fingers; I enjoyed doing the mini-cable pattern.
