Peaceful Palms Weekly #6

Please excuse all my sniffing, sneezing, and coughing -- nona has finally succumbed to the cold that struck all the other members of the nona-clan.  But enough about me, let's check in on our Peaceful Palm Knit Alongers.  Congratulations to this weeks finishers: 

  • Alice has woven her ends in on her tipless gloves and is now officially blue.
  • Amanda finished a cute pair of mittens for her daughter.  The mittens are so loved,  her daughter's preschool teachers had a tough time coaxing them off and into the cubby.  Amanda also has plans to knit another pair.
  • Beverly enjoyed knitting her Progressive Gloves and has plans to knit more.
  • Jillian finished a 2nd pair of gloves -- these are the Men's Handwarmers from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.  She also has plans to make a couple more pairs to give as holiday gifts.
  • Susie has finished several pairs of gloves and mittens and has several more in the works.
  • Tara is keeping a 2nd pair of Peaceful Palms warm with her "Hurry Up Spring Armwarmers".
  • Teri finished a beautiful pair of mittens based on Elizabeth Zimmerman's mitered mittens pattern.

And an update on those still knitting away:

  • Christina has finished her first mitten.  She's using Jo Sharp's wool and has cleverly adapted the Coronet brim for the cuff of her mitten.
  • Elaine is having fun adapting her Opera Glove pattern to use a thinner yarn and more decorative decreases.
  • Glenda almost finished one of her modified opera gloves before she decided it was destined for the frog pile.  She has a great idea for her gloves -- I hope her second attempt is more successful!
  • Lynn P. is working on her second pair of peaceful palms, mittens this time.
  • Laura has worked out all the math and pattern modification for her boyfriend's gloves and is making great knitting progress.
  • Lisette has all 10 fingers done and is ready to join them together.
  • Queen of the Snow Cows has written a nice little tale to report her glove progress.  Read about it here.
  • Regina is knitting a pair of i-cord gloves and is almost finished with her fingers.
  • Ronda plans to knit a pair of Urban Necessity gloves for her daughter.

Do you have any Peaceful Palms news to report?

Well, I've finished one pair that I can't tell you about (really helpful that, isn't it!), and I've made a start on the first pair of Cigar Gloves (pictures of the amazing 2/2 ribbing to be forthcoming today).

I have started a second pair of gloves for my sister-in-law for Christmas -- two at one time to avoid "second glove syndrome." Certainly worth the price of a second pair of dpn. I finished two pair of children's mittens for our sock and mitten tree at church (socks and mittens for the local "clothing closet.") as part of the Knit Unto Others KAL.

Yes, I do. I started the Broad Street Mittens for my brother and finished one without the flap covering. I am working on the second glove ... hopefully I'll get them done within this week!

Tara's fingerless are so beautiful. This is very fun to check in on Nona. I'm working on a finish for my final pair of holiday gift fingerless....pics to come

I have finally started my first mitten. The braided pattern is fun and easy to knit.

Hi! I just gave my friend some fingerless gloves made from yarn I dyed myself. I used Ann Budd's Fingerless Mitts pattern from Weekend Knitting and I love it!

I'm wondering what fingerless glove pattern for women you all would recommend. Thanks.
