That is so cool! :D
I hope you'll post pics of your finished work! :D
Thanks Cass :)
Just sewing the beads on the last open mitt now and will post pictures later today :)
Glad you like these and hope you will make some, I love the stitch combination it just looks so textured without being a cable stitch plus it is so easy to do as well :)
Have fun this weekend, I was thinking about you last night but didnt see you online for a chat. Stay safe and have lots of fun wont you.
Looking forward to hearing all the details when you get back ok
pics too :)
Welcome Helen. :)
I'll be sure to check them out later when I'm home after my trip.
Hmm...maybe I'll try it sometime when I buy yarn for it later. :D
Thanks. I'll be sure to stay safe and have fun.
Oh I'll be taking extra batteries with my digital camera. ;D
thanks Cass, I am glad you got back safely and am looking forward to seeing your pics :)

They are just divine
Hope you don't mind i have saved the pattern on my pc as i don't have the loom free to try the pattern yet. I am so going to make these. You are so right i just read the pattern from start to finish and wow so simple. Keep up the good work hun.
Big Hug's Justine :o)
Excellent news Justine, cant wait to see your gloves all knitted up :)
Dont forget to send me your pattern again with the new bits filled in and the photograph so I can make it into a pdf for you then add it to the group.
Can you do this before Wed please because Saturday or Sunday it will go on the group's front page as a feature project :)
Neat! I'll have to try these!
excellent, looking forward to seeing them made by you :) Can you let me know when you do them please so I can see ? Going to add you as a friend, if that is not ok please let me know so I can remove you afterwards. I totally will understand and not take offence if you would rather not add each other, no worries just let me know ok :)
Oh, friend away - I love making new friends! It may be a while before I get to the gloves since I'm up to my eyeballs in other projects, but they're definitely on my "must-do" list.
Thanks :)) you add too, I will be adding more and more patterns in November and December mind you I am no pattern writer but I do my best so please let me know if I do them in a way you understand or dont understand as I usually am used to just writing things out for my 12 year old daughter to understand.
My to do list is growing by the day as well. My husband's hat has been left all day since this morning as we have been making the Christmas Bells as part of the loom class group projects starting yesterday.
So many lovely things to make and do so little time, I am sure you are familiar with that LOL
HI yes, they are working out brilliantly for the wheelchair fro grip and to stop your hands from the freezing cold winds and cold metal of the wheel too. I love them and will make more pairs. I bought some Lana Grossa Bingo to make the next pair in pale blue. Not sure how clean they will stay or for how long but I just loved the colour so wanted to buy it :)
I will add you when I have finished typing this message to you, thank you and lovely to meet you :)
We have been doing the Knifty Christmas bells all day long since just after 10pm last night as the Loom Class started yesterday. I thought it would be a great project for my children and I was right, they loved it. Going to add the photographs in a bit. How are you getting on with yours?
Hiya just wondering how you are getting on with your Christmas decorations projects ?
oh no I am so sorry to hear this news.
Please know that you are in my thoughts ok and I am sending you lots of healing vibes and hugs
((((((((((((( hugs ))))))))))))
I'm saving this to my memories because I definitely want to try when my blue loom is free again! It'll be a while yet though, because I'm participating in the knit-a-long at who_knits and of course the Doctor Who scarf is around 20 feet long.
I think I'm still a bit confused about the fingers. Hopefully it will make more sense as I do it. Eight stitches wide? Ok. I'm really looking forward to these! Will have to sew leather on the palm, I walk with a cane and knit gloves slide off the handle.
can you send me a link for the who_knits group I dont know about that one yet and would love to join for Ivan and me?
the fingers are just tubes made separately then sewn together and sewn into the hand. Simple as :) I am sure you will get the hang of it. Just let me know if you need any help. My email address is myheartexposed at me dot com
I use the google email address for group messages for the knifty knitter looms yahoo group I moderate so it tends to get swamped a lot.
I am adding you as a friend so feel free to do the same if you like :)
Also great fun for fans is http://community.livejournal.com/crafty_tardis/
While who knits is just knit and crochet (and completely taken up with the knit-a-long right now), crafty tardis is all kinds of crafts. Silly fun.
Thanks for the offer of help, I think I was just too tired and brain-fogged looking at it the first time. Very clever way to make fingers, but I've never seen it anywhere else!
Friending back, I love new friends with similar interests! Just be warned, mine is meant to be mostly a geeky fandom journal... although real life has been creeping in more of late.
LOL I have a lot of geeky fandom friends on my friends list, you must check out some of them, one in particular hugh_casey posts really cool pictures and runs Philcon as well. I am a closet sci fi fan LOL :)
Thanks for the links, will check em out later
Thank you so much for sharing this! I never dreamed something so beautiful could be made on the knifty knitter. My daughter and I have been making mitts on the loom for almost 2 years just leaving an opening for the thumb. My thumb gets cold this way and I've been trying to figure out how to make a thumb. You saved me so much work and your mitts are so much prettier. You're a very talented lady.
thank you so very much Lori, have you finished your mitts yet? cant wait to see them :)

Love the mits! Knitting a pair right now. Need your help
Hello. I love these mits!! I have one started and I am now to the point of making the thumb. Can you please explain further how to do the thumb/fingers? I've made it to your instructions where you say 'Left hand variation, follow from * to * till last four stitches remaining. Done that. Next you say to 'working back the way you arrived at the last four stitches, Done, that. Then you say,'crochet cast on three stitches above the stitches already on the three pegs'. This is where I am lost. Can you please offer some assistance???
Thank you so much for a lovely pattern!! Hope to hear from you soon!
