I love Fingerless Gloves!

My latest foray into this category is with the Nightingale Gloves by Shauna Rapjack. Those of you on Ravelry - it is available as a free Ravelry download. I am using Artyarns Supermerino. I made almost an entire glove on size 7 DPNs and it looked kinda small so I tried it on and it was so tight the laddering between the K2tog and the SSK was more apparant than the lace pattern:

size 7

before frogging

So i frogged it and went with a set of 9's. I still need to weave in the ends, but one hank was enough to do 1 as written, and 1 longer glove ( basically doing an extra repeat of rows 1-12) There are directions for an extra 3 rows up the fingers, but I like mine to end at the knuckles.


The thumb looks weird in the picture, but looks normal when worn

This is the short glove before the thumb


I really think I need a plastic hand. It is really hard to take a picture of something on your own hand. You know like the people that make a lot of hats have styrofoam or plastic or glass heads?? Maybe a foot too, socks are a tad easier but still weird looking when youare photographing your own appendage!


  1. Ruth (yarnarian) mentioned she had an extra foot model, I too want a hand model!

  2. I love that yarn! I like the way it worked up on the bigger needles too.
