WIP Wednesday – Knotty gloves

Happy Wednesday readers!

Today I’m finally sharing a wooly WIP after what seems like ages! I’ve been working on a pair of gloves as we’re entering winter down under and I always get really cold hands. I found this pattern for free on Ravelry and it is very well written in my opinion. It was my first time constructing gloves and I think all the details in the patterns are there to make it successful. The only thing I’m a bit worried about at this point is that it’s hard to get no holes between the fingers!

Here is glove one so far, I know I could probably have finished the pair by now but I really didn’t work much on them as I’ve been mostly stitching while I’ve been in Queensland. Blame it on the heat! I am definitely looking forward to a cooler weather though so I can get back into my knitting and I still need to write up a couple of patterns for amigurumi as well, including Cooper the copepod. The next month is looking up to be busy for sure! Enjoy the rest of your week 😀

  1. I solved my hole problem with my thumb when I took care of the ends. Just sort of pulled it tight and added a stitch or two to close it off. Not sure if it works for fingers, but maybe?

  2. This glove is well on its way! Or it could be a partial fingerless glove😊❤️

    • lol that would be funny Tracy but I think my fingers would be way too cold! We’re well into autumn now and it’s getting really chilly

    I’d have gone for a pair of fingerless gloves myself (if I could knit gloves).

    • I have a few fingerless pairs that I crocheted but it’s getting way too cold here and my hands are always freezing so I thought it was time for me to take the plunge and make full gloves!

  9. Hi, the gloves look lovely, I’ve never tried knitting gloves. The yarn is really pretty too – hope winter isn’t too bad. We had a very long wet winter with more snow than we’ve seen in a long time.

    • Thanks! I think it’s not too bad to knit gloves if you’ve done socks before 😊 the hardest was doing the magic loop for the fingers. I hope winter doesn’t get too bad either but only time will tell! 🤞

    • Haha I know it’s still weird for me too! I’ve been in Australia for 7 years almost but I still think we’re getting into summer because it’s May. Unfortunately the cold weather is reminding me that we are definitely going to winter!

      • Oh it sucks! I wish it was summer for you but then again, its nice for you at Christmas lol

      • Yes but it’s so weird to have a hot Christmas! I normally just want to be under blankets, watch Christmas movies and drink my hot chocolate for Christmas. You can’t eat too much when it’s too hot lol

      • Hmmm, what lacy blankets with a fan and ice hot chocolate LOL. Do you have salad for Christmas dinner then haha 😉

      • lol no we do BBQ lunch here and a roast for dinner (not really season appropriate 😂) but if I could I would totally put the air conditioning super cold and do blankets and hot chocolate! lol
