go anywhere....ANYwhere

a couple of weeks ago i started working on these fingerless gloves - i thought they would be great to use in the mornings as the office is usually pretty chilly after a night of being empty during the winter time. i also wanted a small project to bring with me "on the road" to knit in free time during the tournaments. well, being that 10 of us shared a house in palm springs, and with all the activities at the LA Open, there was little to no time to knit. although somehow i did manage to lose one of my dpns somewhere between palm springs and LA...grrr

project particulars
pattern: go anywhere gloves from The Knitting Man(ual) by kristin spurkland (i made the fingerless version)
needles: clover bamboo sizes US 2 and US 3 dpns
yarn: koigu's kpppm, color p330; less than 1 skein

these were a breeze to knit, in total time and in difficulty. if i were to do them again though, i would probably knit up maybe an inch more after the cuff before starting the increases for the thumb, they feel a bit short for my lanky, err...graceful wrists. also, just for comfort i may do the little half fingers instead of just one big opening (it just feels a little strange). oh, and maybe plan things a little better - since spring has sprung, it hasn't been chilly enough in the mornings lately to need them in the office.

I have fingerless gloves I use when the Kid and I go ice skating. I love them!
