I decided I needed to make a pair of Sideways gloves.
Gloves have not been kind to me in the past. I cannot stand to go round and round on double points for the fingers. I get dizzy thinking about it. Leave it to someone clever enough to figure a way to knit gloves flat. Really? How smart is Shara Lambeth? When I came across Shara Lambeth’s Design , I knew I could knit them.
It took me a bit to figure out what part I was knitting in the beginning, but it soon became very clear.
Knit on size 3 straights, I’m using Schoppel cat pruit admiral yarn. Color 2157.
75% washable wool, 25% Nylon. I put three different skeins against my jacket and the knit group helped me decide on this colorway. Cause this pairs’ for me!
Now, I need to knit 3 more sides. Then you sew 2 pieces together to make each glove.
I know, I’ll need encouragement for that part. Right now, though, I’m really enjoying knitting the sides.
Happy Friday!!! Happy Cinco de Mayo!
