Peaceful Palms Weekly #7

Hopefully everyone is enjoying their finished gloves, mitts, gauntlets, and mittens and that their palms are feeling very peaceful.  Dena is enjoying her gloves so much she's finding them to be a driving hazard :-)

This week's finishers:

  • Agnes finished her second pair of gloves -- this one a pair of Broad Street Gloves for her brother.
  • Amanda finished a second pair of mittens.  These "Mike the Tiger" mittens are for her son.
  • Amy P. persevered through a wrist injury to finish her Cigar Gloves.
  • Carina's palms are looking very peaceful in her alpaca fingerless gloves.
  • Cheryl finished not one, but two pairs of fingerless gloves -- both knit with her own hand-spun yarn.  She is also in the midst of knitting a pair of i-cord gloves, if she could just find her misplaced thumbs!
  • Erin knit a fun pair of wrist warmers for her daughter -- along with a matching hat!
  • Janine finished two more pairs of gloves -- one for dancing daughter and the other for skateboarding son -- lucky kids!
  • Julia (scroll down) finished a pair of arm warmers knit in a spiral rib pattern -- check them out the colors are beautiful!
  • Katie finished two pairs of manly wrist warmers -- one for her dad and the other for her son -- along with a feminine pair of wristwarmers for herself.
  • Kim finished her second pair of gloves, which will be a gift.  She struggled with 2nd glove syndrome, but was able to pull through!
  • Lu finished a fun, bright pair of red mittens along with a matching hat.  She is also working on a pair of lacey wrist warmers.
  • Sparky completed not one, but two pairs of wonderful gauntlets.
  • Springy finished her first pair of gloves and learned to knit on 2 circular needles in the process.
  • Tara finished her 3rd pair of Peaceful Palms -- a pair of fingerless mitts knit with her own Kool-Aid dyed yarn.

Other Peaceful Palm progress:

  • Ann is knitting her first pair of mittens.  She's enjoying the cable pattern and is finding the mittens to be a quick knit.
  • Elaine finished her first mitten.  She's using Yarn Forward's Thrummed Mitten pattern.
  • Laura finished one of her gloves.  She's knitting the cigar gloves.

Great job all you Peaceful Palmers!  We have lots of finishers, many knitting multiple pairs.  Have no fear if you haven't started yours yet, the knit along runs through the end of January -- plenty of time!

Hi Nona-
Just want to let you know that I finished a pair of warm wristlets. I was having a terrible time with fingers so I decided to make a pattern without any. The link to my wristlets is in my url.

Thanks again for hosting this KAL I would have never attempted gloves without it.
