I think this KAL is officially abandoned!

Unfortunately, the owner of this blog has disappeared, and I do hope she is ok!

If anyone is interested in starting a new KAL or needs assistance, or wants to share photos, come on over to my forums. There is a knucks subforum, so you can get assistance quickly, either from me or from one of my test-knitters.

If you loved knitting knucks you should check out Jen Unger Kroc's (free)new glove pattern, based on several techniqes from knucks.

That's all I have for now! Hope to see you over there. There have been a ton of new knuck knitters clicking through my blog, so I hope to see some of your work on our gallery soon.

Christmas Pressies

The two Knucks with the bags were for my god-daughter (purple)and one of my best friends (black).
The Green ones are mine and are the ones I mentioned before, where I extended the fingers to do a mendi pattern based on one I found on the net.
I also did a plain pair for my other best mates Hubby in alpaca.
I just have to finish 3 more pairs then I'm done, two like the black ones withe red flowers to match similar bags for both of my sisters-in-laws.
and a plain alpaca pair for my mums friend who works with horses at a shelter.
I've done all the fingers for them.
Just have to do the hands then I think I'm going to have a go at a different pattern ;o)

My latest set of knucks, made by request for a mate :)

These ones are black Jaeger Extra Fine Merino, with white embroidery. I'm getting better at the embroidery I think.

new embroidery + new knucks!

So this first pair, it a little bit of a cheater entry. I finished them in August with the embroidery on the fingers, but my husband really wanted the skulls embroidered on the hands like mine. So on our way to Virginia last week, I broke down and spent the two + hours embroidering them. I was not sure if he would wear the knucks when I made them, but I can proudly say that they have become a cold day staple in his wardrobe!

And when we were in Seattle, my dad was so jealous of his knucks and mine that the plain black pair is for my dad for Christmas! Trying to get all those presents knocked out before the holiday season kills me with work -- its a retail thing!
Have a great week!!

what's this about the joining row??

I have been hearing people stress about the joining row, and working it on three needles. There is no reason to work the joining row on three needles. I work it on five or even six if I have an extra laying around. I worried that somewhere in the editing, the pattern had changed to require a knit-on-three-needles row, but that is really not the case. I think either a) some people are misinterpreting the instructions or b) I am misinterpreting the stress.

So I made a thread here to discuss it:

knucks joining row: don't do it on three needles.

I feel bad that poor Tonya has disappeared from our KAL and the stars are not being kept up, etc. I'm not officially a moderator of this blog, so there is nothing I can do. If you want to have more real-time chat about this pattern, go ahead and come over to my forum. Bring your photos!

2nd Pair Of Knucks

I finished my 2nd pair of knucks almost a week ago. I actually used the yarn that the pattern called for. My previous pair were done in wool ease. I have to admit that the Rowan Wool Cotton is so much softer. These knucks are going to my best friend.

I just wanted to share the finished knucks. Blogger has been such a pain and not uploading my photos. Sorry for the delay in sharing...

Have a great week!

Hey friends! As the Ultimate season is beginning to overlap with the "Holy crap it's cold in Connecticut!" season, I'm wearing my knucks to practice a lot. I'm now wondering about the logistics of knitting a few pairs for teammates. Thus, I'm wondering if anyone has used Knitpicks' Telemark for their Knucks, and if so, if one can get a pair of womens' sized knucks out of one ball (103 yds). Thanks!
