I finished them yesterday! The last glove went pretty quick after I got the hitch
these- I'm already making a pair for myself using Magallanes
in brown (#300).
It was very cool knitting a vintage pattern, too. Knowing that men wore these gloves in the 1940's in battle. But, no one I know will be snipering, hopefully.
I've already had requests from people for their own pair! Including my boyfriend, Mr "Knitting is Dumb," himself. :rollseyes:
So, here are the 1st pair- I knit these in Lion Brand wool ease in black (per request) using US#1 needles.
This was my first time making gloves and my 2nd time following a pattern. I'd been kntting scarves and other square things for about a year until I got couragous and pushed myself. VERY gratifying!
