This year for Christmas I have already made two wonderful “two-stitch” cowls using Lion Brand’s Amazing yarn. It is truly amazing. Easy to work with and very pretty to look at. They are also very fast to make up! Bonus! I found a pattern for matching fingerless gloves on the Lion Brand site – also in Amazing. So the plan is to make up some cowls and “Dolce Fingerless Gloves” to give as a set to a few people at Christmas.
I made up the first glove last night (well, mostly . . . note quite done) using double pointed needles. I realized it would look much better if done on a circular needle. I have a few 9″ circulars . . . but not size 9. I did a google search to find one and
THEY DON”T EXIST!!
Nada. Nil. I’ll keep looking of course, but am not hopeful. Looks like I’ll have to go with the size 8s I have and adjust the pattern a bit. What a pain!! So that means, I either have to knit the 2nd one of this set on dpn and not be 100% happy with how they look. Or I need to rip this one out. Hmmm. That will take some thinking.
