Peaceful Palms Weekly #5

We have a lot of busy glove knitters out there!  First, congratulations to this week's Peaceful Palms finishers:

  • Agnes finished a fabulous pair of lace gloves from A Gathering of Lace.  Agnes recommends that if you like knitting socks you'll also enjoy knitting gloves -- I totally agree!
  • Bernadette is definitely hooked on gloves finishing her second pair of Hooray for Me Gloves -- this pair for her son.
  • Betty finished a great pair of tipless gloves for her son.  She enjoyed the entire glove knitting process -- up to the weaving of ends, that is!
  • Carola finished her pair of "Glottons" using Noro Kureyon.  She cleverly added crocheted "little bridges" between the fingers of these fingerless gloves -- be sure to go look for yourself!
  • Ceris knit a beautiful pair of gloves from Louisa Harding's Gathering Roses Accessories Collection.
  • Dena is very happy with her i-cord gloves -- loving the yarn and the finished gloves.
  • Ina is well into her Holiday Knitting completing a pair of fingerless gloves of her own design.  These will make a great holiday gift for the lucky recipient!
  • Judy is also a multi glove finisher.  She finished her 2nd pair of fingerless gloves -- using a toothpick to knit the thumb -- and is well into her 3rd pair.
  • Kim (scroll down to Nov 17th) finished a pair of gloves for her boyfriend using one strand of alpaca for warmth and one strand of Sock It to Me wool/nylon for strength.
  • Margene finished her Grrlfriend Gloves and found they went great with her newly completed Brier jacket -- check out her complete hand knit ensemble here.
  • Mary finished a pair of fingerless gloves -- she plans to wear them when cycling to work.
  • Mia's beautiful, lacy gloves were finished just in time for the first snow.
  • Renata finished her Broad Street Mittens, modifying the pattern to include an intarsia star on the mitten cover. 
  • Tara, a new knit alonger, has already finished one pair of gloves for her father-in-law and plans to make a 2nd pair for her mom.

While lot's of you are hard at work and almost finished:

  • Alice is almost finished with your tipless gloves, having only the ends to weave in.  She cleverly used short rows to subtly shape the back of the hand.
  • Carina (scroll down) has finished her first Garn Studio fingerless glove -- it looks very soft and cozy -- and is well into its mate.
  • Elaine plans to knit Sweaterscape's Opera Gloves -- long and elegant.
  • Faith has finished the fingers of her first Urban Necessity glove.
  • Heather O. is knitting a pair of top down gloves.  After knitting several i-cord fingers, she switched to using i-cord until the increases were done and knitting the rest in the round.
  • Kelly is converting a pair of partially knit socks into her second pair of Peaceful Palms gloves.
  • Laura is primed and ready -- books and magazines collected, yarn purchased, fingers measured -- to knit a pair of gloves for her boyfriend.
  • Sherry is knitting Lucy Neatby's Paradoxical Mitten -- quite cool.
  • Springy is almost finished with her tipless gloves, only 2 more fingers to go.  Go on over and cheer her on to the finish line.
  • Winnie has started a pair of fingerless gloves for her husband.

On a final note, let's quickly flash back to the Nothing But a T-Shirt knit along.  I'd like to congratulate several recent finishers:

  • Carry finished her NBaT and it looks great -- worth all the hard work!
  • Nancy debuted her finished NBaT on Thanksgiving -- lucky girl lives in a nice warm climate!  Go find out what happened when they went back into the house after the NBaT photo shoot...

Wow that's alot of hand coverings! This last week I also finished another pair. I posted an FO of hand warmers from LMKG, and will have two more pairs of fingerless gloves on the sticks soon. Such perfect holiday gifts!

The gloves are winding down fast. They are all fabulous. I finished and I'm already planning the next pair. This time I'll do a little more tweaking of the pattern.

I've got several finished gloves/mitts and a whole bunch in the works!

Thanks for keeping us all accountable for finishing...

Hi, I love your blog! It's really cool, and I love the gloves. One question a friend of mine had was about a glove pattern, made for couples.
One glove was normal, but the other was missing a thumb, so they could hold hands. Have you heard of anything like this? I was thinking she could just leave the thumb off, of do the first couple of rows, and cast off, leaving the thumb open....Thanks, I really enjoyed your site!!

I just finished my Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers and might just add a little 'flip-top' to 'em- a la BroadStreet...any suggestions?
