FO- Trigger Gloves
I finished them yesterday! The last glove went pretty quick after I got the hitch straightened out...

I love 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!

Very cute! And I love that they're called Trigger Gloves! I just bought some Misti Alpaca Worsted today to make the fingerless mittens from Sally Melville's Purl Stitch book. I figured being a po-po I should make some for the winters when I'm constantly cold, but need my fingers free to type on my laptop in my car or even shoot at the range

You said it's a vintage pattern--is it in a book?

thank you all!

Andrea, I found the patten here. Supposedly the pattern was copied directoy from a Red Cross book from 1940- the same year my dad was born! She (the owner of the site I got the pattern from) has other patterns from the book I'm going to try.
