Peaceful Palms Weekly #9

Take a moment my friend and look at the list of Peaceful Palms knit alongers -- stage left.  According to my estimates -- and remember nona was a Math Major -- there have been 97 pair of gloves, tipless gloves, fingerless gloves and mittens completed for the knit along.  Do you think we can top 100 by the 31st?  I do!  Here are our most recent finishers:

  • Glenda finished a wonderful pair of cabled fingerless gloves just in time to meet a friend for a pint.
  • Irisine is not an official member of the knit along, but knit this beautiful pair of i-cord gloves I had to share.
  • Kathy finished her third pair of gloves, the color work and color combination of this pair is truly stunning!
  • Kelly completed her second pair of Peaceful Palms, a colorful pair of fingerless gloves.
  • Kim (scroll down to January 15th) finished her second pair of gloves, a pair of i-cord gloves knit with self striping yarn.
  • Mary's first FO of 2006 was a pair of gloves -- her first pair of gloves -- knit out of Koigu.  She used the Interweave "Progressive Glove" article to work out her pattern.
  • Sara designed and knit a pair of tipless gloves as a Christmas gift for her step-mom.

And in the running to be the 100th finished pair we have lots of knit alongers making great progress:

  • Anna has recovered from the busy holiday season at her soap shop and is poised -- yarn and all -- to begin her pair of peaceful mittens.
  • Jen J. is "glovin' it" with 5 fingers down and 5 to go.
  • Kiri is starting a pair of mismatched gloves using yarn from her stash -- if they're mismatched there are no worries of running out of yarn.
  • Mimi has nothing finished yet, but has three different pairs of gloves in the works, which will she finish first?
  • Wanda is knitting a pair of i-cord gloves and is currently addicted to finger knitting -- we call it "finger fever".

Next week, on the 31st, will be the last "official" day of the knit along.  But don't worry if you're not finished by then -- just email me when, and if, you finish and I'll turn you blue in the knit along list.

Although I finished them a couple of weeks ago, I couldn't post 'em till they were gifted: I have another pair of fingerless gloves finished!

I'll try my very best to finish the gloves until next tuesday so we can reach 100+ pairs!

Just a little update - I finished my thrummed mittens before Christmas. I'm still working on getting picture off my digital camera... they look great, and are oh so warm :)

Hi nona, thank you so much for this knitalong. It's almost over now and looking back, I did not achieve what I was planing for but something different and at least the number of pairs fits. It was very inspiring to see all the other gloves and mittens (and the single knitted fingers). On the very last day I finally managed to write down a pattern! I will post later today, hopefully in time for your final report. Thanks again.

I just posted one last pair for the KAL. I had such big plans - including a pair with peace signs on the palms- but time just slip slip passed over. Maybe I'll still get to them....

Nona, thanks for the knitalong. I just posted my final pair, finished with only hours to spare (on the west coast). Thanks for the motivation to finish!
