FO: No Glove(s) No Love

Finally, finally, got some pictures!  I started these gloves at the tail end of my holiday break.  And finished them pretty quickly but they’ve been sitting around waiting for their star turn.

My Rav page here.

Pattern: No Glove(s) No Love by Claire Sandow from Holla Knits Accessories 2013

Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Lettuce, less than half a skein

Needles: 2.75mm DPNs

Start Date: December 31, 2014

Finish Date: January 7, 2015

No mods to the pattern.  In hindsight I would have added a few extra rows onto the palm side.  My heart is pretty stretched across my hand, and maybe it would look a little more defined if the glove was a tiny bit bigger.  Or maybe my cast-on edge should have been a little tighter.   These gloves had such a fun construction.  The edge of the heart is actually the cast-on edge!  Then there is shaping done with short rows to define the heart.  The palm is knit across horizontally, then stitches are picked up for the individual fingers.

I have always dreaded gloves.  Ever since making one pair of fingerless gloves (with partial finger holes) I thought I would only make mittens or mitts.  But it actually wasn’t bad!  There are so few stitches on each finger, they really go quickly.  You just have to use your yarn ends to tidy up all the gaps and holes at the base of the fingers.

These cute little heart moto gloves make me want to jump on a Vespa and hit the town!

And right now there is a KAL going on in the Holla Knits group!  For every Holla Knits project that you finish you get a free Holla Knits pattern or pattern from a participating designer.  It’s just like me to adjust my knitting life around just to save $6…  And you have until May to complete things.  I am currently working on a pair of Bombshell shorts.  Yep, cabled hot pants.  It’s just like me to make something that I will never wear…
