Fibre Friday: Knitting More Fingerless Gloves

Fibre FridayA couple of weeks ago, I shared about A Knit-a-thon, Arm Knitting, and Fingerless Gloves. Since then, I haven’t got much knitting done (or any other fibre arts for that matter), but I did manage to knit more fingerless mitts.

It’s the same pattern from the book, Knitting New Mittens and Gloves, that I borrowed from the library and shared in my post. I knit some fingerless gloves for charity and then both my son AND daughter wanted a pair!

Here is my son’s pair. He wanted his in the same, blue yarn.

For my daughter, I knit some up in a beautiful pink bamboo yarn that she just loves.

Hopefully, by next Friday I will have some progress on knitting a dog with my daughter, and on the Crosstown Convertible that I started during the Olympics.

What are you or your children working on this week? Knitting, crocheting, spinning, or felting? Please share and feel free to link up!

Fibre Friday: A Knit-a-thon, Arm Knitting, and Fingerless Gloves

Fibre FridayThe Olympics and the Ravellenics are over! Did you knit, crochet, or make something? I didn’t finish the Crosstown Convertible, but it’s on the back burner – I would love to finish it sometime in March!

Last Saturday was the annual Knit Fit Knit-a-thon. We spent all day knitting from 10am to 5pm and had a fabulous time. We raised about $1100 or so for the library’s Children’s Literacy programs and knitted, crocheted, and wove hundreds of items for charity! The photo above shows just one wall of the items collected by the end of the day.

I taught a bunch of people how to arm knit and we all made scarves. Here I am modelling one of the three I knit and donated:

And here is my friend Chris’ very first arm knit project ever:

Before the Knit-a-thon, I took out these two books from the library:

I thought the fingerless gloves pattern would be perfect for the day of the Knit-a-thon. I started knitting them last Saturday after arm knitting scarves, and finished them during the week:

My daughter loves these fingerless gloves, and I will be starting on a pair for her. Hopefully I can also get to the Knit Your Own Dog book and knit some cute dogs with my daughter in the next couple of weeks!

Have you ever tried arm knitting? What fibre arts projects are you or your children working on this week?
