I finished the fingerless gloves — sort of.
Things that I learned during this project.
1) My fingers are proportionally bigger around than my hands and wrists. The gloves fit beautifully on my hands, but the fingers are not big enough around. Since I am making these in a quest to have warmer fingers, I think that cutting off the circulation would be very detrimental to that goal.
2) Knitting the fingers on my 60 inch needle (used for the magic loop) is just a wee bit cumbersome.
3) Even if they fit, I think that there is too much fabric between my fingers to make typing feasible.
What I am going to do…
I am going to frog back to where I stopped doing the thumb increases. I am going to do two more thumb increases and then knit this like a topless mitten, instead of as fingerless gloves. I reached this decision after giving the mitts a wash to see if they would relax (they didn’t)
Here is a picture of the mitts pre-frogging
