Free Pattern: Seattle gloves WORSTED weight
Last but not least, finally released today the Seattle WORSTED weight fingerless gloves knitted with needle size US#7.
The yarn used here are Malabrigo (red) and an unidentified worsted weight in my stash (brown). Just like the Seattle ARAN, I included two sizes: medium Mens and medium Womens.
Frogging makes you a stronger knitter...
In order to find out how much yarn was in each glove, I frogged the pieces. My husband asked me if that was hard to do and my answer is: not at all!
Frogging, or ripping out, is part of knitting/designing too. And I truly believe it makes you a stronger knitter... it also can make you an angry knitter!
To take apart the little pieces almost was poetic to me: breaking down what you have created before you grow attached to it.
Just like the Buddhists that make those gorgeous sand mandalas only to destroy it after they are done with their project.
But really, I do need to purchase a weighing scale! As a pattern writer, it is a must to have one.
Seattle gloves can be addictive!
I have knitted lots and lots of Seattle gloves in the past. I just could not stop making them.
The cadence and rhythm of the pattern was so soothing to me. Knowing that I had implemented certain numbers in the design that would reflect ultimate symmetry, balanced me while working on them.
Also, I had the beautiful opportunity to work with many gorgeous yarns. Sigh...it was so much fun...
Coming week is going to be a busy one again for me. Come back tomorrow to see what's in store.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, I am going to knit on some socks and just try to relax and enjoy this beautiful Halloween Sunday.
Thank you for reading and see you tomorrow!
