Fingerless Gloves

My father’s office has been particularly cold of late. Because of this, he’s taken to wearing his bike gloves for a bit of extra warmth while working at his computer. My mom told me of this and wondered if he might like a pair of fingerless gloves for the office. Of course, I am powerless to resist knitting for a family member “in need” so I got started immediately after I received his hand measurements.

Since I work exclusively from stash these days, I pulled out some knitpicks wool of the andes I had in stash. I had to pair it with another color because there was no way I had enough for a full set of gloves. I don’t think the stripes look too bad, and since there was a pitifully small amount of main color left over, it was a good decision.

My plan is to spend some time weaving on this lovely Saturday. It’s been awhile, and I’ve got an open wall space I hope to hang the current project from. Time to get a move on with it!

One thought on “Fingerless Gloves

  1. The stripes look just fine. I’m glad you had enough of the main color to finish. Always nerve wracking when you’re down to just a few yards.
