Peaceful Palms Weekly #2

Congratulations to this week's Peaceful Palm finishers:

  • Beth finished her beautiful, cabled Hermione Mittens and is already planning her next mitten project.
  • Deb finished her i-cord gloves knit from her own hand spun yarn. 
  • Jennifer finished her first pair of gloves -- a wonderful pair of fair isle gloves -- and is hoping to knit more!
  • Judy zipped through her fun fingerless gloves.
  • Kim finished a beautiful pair of blue gloves from Weekend Knitting.
  • Michelle finished a nice, long pair of gauntlets that are keeping her warm at work.
  • Rebecca knit her gloves using Regia Sock Yarn and Madil Kid Seta held together.  She started with the Hooray for Me glove pattern for inspiration, but made many changes including the number of stitches based on the gauge.  Rebecca added short row shaping so the fingers would fit on her hand, and knit the fingers full length.
  • Sockbug's gloves look nice and cozy -- I wonder if she'll change her name to "Glovebug"?

And lots of you are hard at work:

  • Alice finished her first fingerless glove while watching hockey -- unfortunately she was unhappy with the "baggy palm" and is going to frog and redo.
  • Alison has started her beautiful snowflake fingerless gloves.
  • Amy P. bought the yarn for the two pairs of Cigar Gloves she's making.
  • Angela is making good progress on her first glove and is finding them as addicting as socks!
  • Bekki has declared, "The sock is dead, long live mittens" -- needless to say she's been working hard on her Broad Street mitten/gloves.
  • Carola has uncovered 2 unfinished mittens -- both stuck in the same place -- and has casted on to begin her gloves.
  • Cheryl will be knitting gloves based on Meg Swansen's i-cord gloves.  She's had a dream about her gloves and now just has to make them a reality!
  • Dena is knitting i-cord gloves and has her pinky on display -- front and back.
  • Erin is hard at work on her gloves.  She was worried about "second glove syndrome", but has quickly moved on to her second glove.
  • Hollis opened a new yarn store today, I doubt she's had any time to think about Peaceful Palms.
  • Jessica was detoured into starting a pair of ruffled gloves.
  • Kim (scroll down) has made great progress with the gloves she's making for her boyfriend.
  • Kimberly couldn't find a glove pattern she liked, so she created her own -- beautiful!
  • Melissa has finished one of her gloves, knit from her own hand spun yarn.
  • Mia is knitting a delicate lace glove -- be sure to click her picture of the glove to get a good look.
  • Mimi has started twice and ripped twice -- both times the glove was too big.  Hopefully the third time will be the charm!
  • Springy is almost done with her first fingerless glove.

Wow ... everybody is working so hard! I have actually started Braod Street one up to the fingers, but found that it may be too big ... don't understand why. I'll post on it soon.
And thanks for the suggestion of M&Ms with the weaving in ends. I think I'll modify that to dried cranberries ... can't eat that many chocolate! LOL!

Everyone is doing so well. I have chosen my yarn and now I have my very own swift it will swiftly (sorry bad pun)be balled up and ready to go. I will post pictures on my blog soon.

I've changed my mind ;) I've just got my mitts on Handknit holidays and a couple of balls of blue sky alpaca so I'm gearing up to make the vintage beaded gloves. I feel like I am slacking with all the fab things other people have already created.

*must knit faster*

Hi Nona,
I want to join! Does it count that I finished a pair of fingerless mitts last week? They're the ones from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I'm on a roll though because I just got the Mac & Me pattern for fingerless mitts using Blue Sky Alpaca (I'll be stashbusting for these). Thanks for doing the kal! I also saw a friend's fingerless gloves made with Alterknits pattern and Manos and they are gorgeous. Maybe have to try that one too.

I finished my first peaceful palms entry. There will be more, oh yes. There will be more. Pics are in my most recent post. They make me so happy!

Just posted a pic of one of the gloves. Thanks for starting this knitalong. I probably would have started on these this year. I really enjoyed seeing the progress photos and creativity. The Progressive Gloves article is great.

I finally started my fingerless gloves today. No pictures yet, but there's a note on my blog about it at http://www.ritesofpassage.us/

I just finished my gloves. I put a photo up on my blog. Thanks for doing this knitalong and getting me thinking about gloves again.
