Spiced Hobo Gloves

spicy hobos1

Pattern: my own
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino, Paprika and Old Gold / Mustard (1 ball each)
Needles: US 5 DPNs
Recipient: Chris

Chris is NOT a glove or mitten wearer. But his paws are soso cold in the winter! This spicy pair represents our compromise. Will he wear them? Tune in in November for the answer. This pattern was cobbled together from several other patterns and my own modest creative genius. To tell the truth, I finished these weeks ago and did not write down the pattern. But here's a hint: take any glove pattern, and (gasp!) only knit the fingers and thumb halfway up!

Let the stash-busting continue! Truth be told, there's probably enough yarn left over from these, STILL, to make another pair. Teeny tiny accessory projects do not a stash bust make. But whaddayagonnado? I only have one ball of this and that, and most "leftovers" projects don't strike me fancy. I guess there's a hand-warming cottage industry in my future...

Hi Jessica. Just wanted to say that your's is my favorite knitting blog ever, you've got such great design ideas, nice color experiments, as far as knitting goes.
And the rest of it is ideal for keeping an expatriate philosophy student informed on what is tres chic in the NYC region...Thanks a million!

Those gloves are great...I love the color combo! And your FMB is wonderful, too, even if you're not totally happy with the shape. I've made a couple of those and they're definitely a different kind of bag, but I think they're great for stashing projects around the house if nothing else.

Love the gloves & the FMB! I agree about felting Lamb's Pride. I don't think it felts as nice as other 100 % wools. It still has too much stitch definition after felting, imho.

I'm needing to knit something for my hands at the moment. I have the yarn, but I just can't decide: Gloves, mittens, flip-top mittens, "sniper" gloves (like a mitten with the first finger separate), hobo (fingerless) gloves, or just wrist warmers?
I thought I'd decided on something, but these look so good I'm not sure anymore!

Oh I do like those a lot! If it weren't for the weaving in of ends, I'd make skinny-striped things more often! Those are excellent! They have a manly Victorian winter look about them.

Your comment program just doesn't like the name of my blog, does it? That's too funny!
