Peaceful Palms Weekly #8

Our Peaceful Palms Knit Along is heading into its last few weeks.  The knit along officially ends January 31st.  I've enjoyed this knit along tremendously and am awed by the diversity and quality of your hand knit mittens and gloves -- Keep them coming!  We have quite of few finishers this week:

  • Amanda's Warm Wristlets were her finished FO of 2006.
  • Amy finished 3 pairs of mittens -- The big blue ones are for a friend, the cream and brown a request from a friend for an "early birthday present" (her birthday is in october), and the itty bitty ones are for Amy.
  • Ann knit a beautiful pair of cabled mittens, unfortunately they are too big :-(  She has plans to knit another pair.
  • Cathy Z. completed a stunning pair of Sonata Gloves and has started on some i-cord fingers.
  • Faith finished a good looking pair of Urban Necessity gloves for her brother-in-law.
  • Gale was inspired by her neighborhood colors to knit these simple but beautiful fingerless gloves.
  • Kristin finished a pair of the Lace Up Fingerless Mitts from Alterknits.
  • Laura completed a great pair of guy's gloves -- her first pair of knit gloves!
  • Lu finished her 3rd pair of Peaceful Palms, this one a pair of fingerless gloves for herself.
  • Sherry finished her Paradox mittens -- be sure to check them out, they are truly amazing.   Sherry has a goal of knitting a pair of gloves or mittens for every day in the week.  She has 3 down and 4 to go!
  • Winnie completed a pair of fingerless gloves for her husband using Ann Budd's Handy Book of Patterns.  Followed quickly by a pair of mittens for her daughter -- thumbs up!

And in other news:

  • Glenda has half a pair fingerless glove -- I love the cable going up the middle.

Are your palms peaceful yet?  It's never too late!

I've finished my first pair of gloves as well. There are pictures in the January 8th entry on my blog. Thanks for such a fun knitalong - I would never have attempted to tackle gloves otherwise!

Oh gosh, I forgot to add that I'm knitting my gloves and I'll be hopefully done by January 31st.

Can I join in after the fact? I made these fingerless gloves just before Christmas: http://www.livejournal.com/community/knitting/6346067.html

Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to have to hurry up! Two more weeks should be well enough time. I need to finish those gloves before winter ends!!;-)

I did get started on the i-cord gloves last night. My palms are not yet peaceful, but I'm working on it. I have two pinkys done and one ring finger done. These fingers are addictive.
