I'm battling with a pair of fingerless gloves at the moment, I'm using a Sirdar pattern from the 50's & I've adjusting them to include a cable pattern on the front. The cable isn't difficult, & I love doing cable but the first one has been frogged a couple of times to incorporate the cable into the shape of the glove. All good now finished the first one & wearing it as I type (so warm I don't want to take it off).
Miek if you're listening, the pattern is the one I gave you, & even though it's supposed to fit a man it's a very snug fit for me as were the gloves I made, so just thought I'd let you know. Photos will be in the next blog.
It's too soon to think about Christmas I know. I don't know what happens in other parts of the world, but here in Australia our children have school holidays the last 2 weeks in September & straight after that the stores start displaying Christmas stock - I try not to look!
I'm not a November Christmas decorator, it has to be at least the 1st December before I put anything up, probably because I can't stand cleaning & dusting around everything for any longer than a couple of weeks.
I do leave it all up until New Years Day though. Which brings me to the photo I took one year when I was putting up Christmas. Thought I'd take a family portrait of all the "guys" as I sorted through them all. They get dotted around the house & I usually sew another one each year. Here they are -
