Broad street fingerless gloves



snowball, originally uploaded by samjoepics.
Joe had asked for a pair of fingerless gloves for Christmas ...and may I quote: 'if I truly loved him they'd be handmade!' Ha ha the goof!

I used the Broad Street mitten pattern - which is a fingerless glove that has an optional mitten 'flap'. Since I didn't need the mitten portion i simply followed the fingerless glove instructions. The only other change I made was knitting each finger so that they match in length (the pattern has them sloping in length).

The yarn is from Creatively Dyed Yarns. I picked it up at Estes Park Wool Market this last year. The colorway is 'Tribal' (I also think you could call it sci-fi or alien). I am really loving this yarn. Great colourway, nice feel, and the yardage seems to go on forever!

Joe is super happy. And feels loved ha ha!
Now he wants a matching balaclava! Since there seems to be oodles of yarn left I think this might be possible.

Loving the snow, and nowhere to go :)

The mitts look great! I can definitely see the colorway being called sci-fi or alien :) Joe is so funny with his comment!

I'm loving all of this snow!
