Yarn: Krafty Koala BFL Nylon Sock Yarn in Midnight Tempest. Unknown yardage, probably used 60% of the skein.
Dates: 1st February 2009 (!!!!!!!) – Some time late 2013 to early 2014.
There may be some accidental modifications involving the cables, but we’re not talking about those.
These are very comfortable to wear and the cable on the back of the wrist is a really clever way of bringing the glove in without including any shaping.
Incorporated some of that conductive thread in the index finger of the right hand glove for operating of fancy schmancy touch-screen stuff. Ideal for paying for your tram ticket without having to take of your glove!
Well, if I use it up, I have to replace it, right?
I’ve successfully spent all of my Christmas and Birthday money from my grandmothers and here are (some of) the results:
Top to Bottom: Gothic Rose (that I’m affectionately calling Zombie Rose), Midnight Tempest, Tornado. From Krafty Koala.

Hopefully I’ll get around to making the other Knotty Glove! This is my first actual glove with 4 fingers and a thumb. No, really. All the other hand-coverings I’ve made have been mittens or had some or all of the tips of the fingers missing. I haven’t knit the pattern exactly as directed (now there’s a surprise!), but I’ll detail my modifications in the FO post.
Speaking of one half of a pair
I finished the first Guided by Love sock. It’s very comfortable to wear and the Braille on the cuff is a great touch! And before someone asks, no I won’t send you a copy of the pattern. Yes, I’ve been asked.
Great comments on my Class of 2005 “award”. Something was nagging at the back of my brain that I’d been blogging since 2004 and I was right! The 8th of October 2004, to be somewhat more precise. I’ve not really celebrated my blogging anniversary, but maybe I should?
