Well, yes, I am a quilt fiend, obsessed beyond belief. But I also like knitting, and I have cold hands quite often. I seem never to find fingerless gloves, much less anything I could use while quilting.
Since I am a computer support technician by day, I need to be able to type freely, which most gloves will not accommodate, and forget about mittens, which are really on my mind!
So, I recently picked up this book: Knitting New Mittens & Gloves: Warm and Adorn Your Hands in 28 Innovative Ways (ISBN 978-1-58479-666-4)
It has some very pretty fingerless gloves, and I just love the looks of them! Especially page 102, Rusalka. Did I mention that I don't start with the easy stuff??
Now, if I can only convince myself that I can do knitting in the round with 4 or 5 needles.....or figure out how to do that with circular needles, I would be in business.
Heck, I learned quilting, I can do this!...why am I so intimated when they say I have to use a 5 needle set?
OK, time to ask my BFF how to do this. She knows everything.... :-)
