More Gloves

So I got around to crocheting up the fingerless gloves for my niece and nephew—even though Winter is a long-gone afterthought here in Florida (in January). It’s getting hot again, but they’re still wearing the gloves.

I used more of pretty yarns I got for Christmas. Love them.  My nephew’s was made with a blue variegated, and my niece with the same yellow, pink variegated one mine are made with. I used my own pattern that I adapted from other patterns and techniques.

Here they are:


They loved modeling them. And they stitched up so quickly. I can make a pair in an evening.

Soo . . . that was fun!

Crochet Socks and More

So I got this *beautiful* yarn for Christmas.


And I wanted to make something special with it. I looked through my pinterest, and found a pretty blanket. I started it, but my mind kept turning to socks. I’d love to make some socks with this yarn. So I found this pattern.

Nice, simple design. I started out on this pattern, hoping it would turn out okay. It was such lovely yarn that I didn’t want to waste it. I started out with one foot (obviously). I made some mistakes . . . learning what the pattern meant and how to make it work. So when I got to my next foot, the fit was much better. Here’s the result:


Except now, I wanted some fingerless gloves to match. Couldn’t find a pattern I liked, but I did find this:

This pinterest doesn’t actually link to the pattern, but it does describe the steps needed to make this thing. Now if only I had a pattern . . .

Couldn’t find one, but I did find this:

I adapted the two and came up with this:


I love the blue edging with the pink and yellow.

And I made it just in time for the temperature to dip down to 65. Hey, it’s Florida. That’s considered cold down here. And the cold never lasts long. I’m happy I got to wear them. Here they are on my hands and feet.






And now my niece and nephew want me to make them a pair of gloves . . . so I guess I’m not the only one who thinks they came out nice.
