Now the non-knitting part...
We had only one single Spring day this week, and I did not miss the chance to go playing in a park:


Proudly modeling my new sweater:


Like before, there were many wild geese and ducks in the park. Also like before, I forgot to bring them any bread crumbs, so they walked away and never looked back!


I promise to bring you some little treats next time, Mr. Duck!

Can you please tell me if I could knit these gloves with one hank of Malabrigo?

Anonymous said...

I have a question and the other link does not work for me. I am in the process of making the glove and I don't quite understand how you get from the "Thumb stitches" to the thumb in general. I don't get why the thumb is the last digit to be made. Any help would be great.

Anonymous said...

I need help, Im making these beautiful gloves, thanks for the pattern, and Im stuck. At the point of making the pinkie it says 'work to within 4 sts before the end of the second needle' ooops, how many stitches (34 total at this point)should be on each needle, ie with three needles holding stiches, and one knitting, does needle one have 11, the second have 11 and the third 12?

Hi Iris! I am loving the malabrigo gloves pattern, thank you so much! But I am confused. I am starting the pinky on the right glove. I dont get cast on 2 stitches from the back of the glove to the palm? So the yarn is now at the back of the gloves, so I use this to ast onto needle number one? BUt then somehow these 2 stitches get knit in the pinkie and in the next finger. I understand what a fourchette is, I just dont understand how to do this. It sleems like they would get ast onto the other side of the pinky and then knit up but then do you just knit into the side of them for the next finger?
Thanks!

Hi Iris, I am stuck on the thumb. I knit the stitches on the waste yarn and then put them back onto the left needle and knit them again with the main yarn and carry on. When I went back to these sts later I ended up with up the sts not on the waste yarn being just loops. I hope that makes sense. Can you please explain to me how to do it? Thanks.

Hi, I'm stuck on the thumb stitches part too. I am utterly confused on how to knit this part. Would you mind, if it's not too much trouble, if you could show a video of the you knitting the thumb stitches.

The gloves are very pretty, but how do you keep the stockinette cuffs from rolling down towards palms? I see so many knitting instructions that have no border pattern, and I wonder how the finished article can be made to stay flat without ribbing.
