I wrote this blog a little over three years ago. It is once again glove season and I am already thinking about this years new pair of gloves. Are you a glove knitter?

I knit my first pair of gloves because I could never find gloves to fit my broad palm and short fingers.   I think that was around 2005.  I really started to get excited about gloves in 2006 and wrote my first glove pattern in 2007!

    I’ve only knitted fingerless mitts and mittens so far, but I have some lovely cashmere that I’m saving for some gloves. Maybe this winter I’ll be bold enough to cast one on! I’m such a big fan of your designs, especially the gauntlets you designed for Vogue Knitting.
