Another project started AND finished

I just LOVE this pair of gloves that I made last year. They are SO useful when out shopping.

A couple of weeks ago I came across the yarn I'd used for them and wondered if there was enough to crochet another pair. I weighed the original gloves and then the 'leftover' yarn. Result - PLENTY. So, out came the crochet hook and off I went on another journey.

Now what I love about crochet gloves is that I don't get those wretched holes at the bottom of the fingers that you get when you knit gloves. Well, probably nobody else gets holes but I do!!!! However careful I am I have 'air conditioning' in my gloves. 

This pair have full fingers/thumbs so are now designated 'out for a walk' gloves!!!! 

I managed to make these (I find crochet a lot faster) while I was fiddling with the TIAS during the day. Crochet in the evening was a lovely change.

I've only crocheted gloves with thread, are yours bulky?

Jane Eborall said...

No, not really and that's in spite of the glitter too!!! I use a 4 ply thread (fingering I think it's called in the USA). I know you're in Australia so not sure what you call it. It's a free pattern too online.

4 ply is what it's called here too, and it's the regular weight of sock wool.

I get A/C knit gloves too! Plus I am not wild about the very small rounds to make the fingers. Which is why I usually knit fingerless gloves, and crochet gloves... sometimes using the knit stitch! Yours are very nice, the yarn is lovely :)

Love the colors. They look warm.

Oh yes, love those and I can see the advantages of crocheting gloves rather than knitting them. Thumbs up!!
