First Knucks Post

Hi everyone, I guess I will be the first one to share an entry on this cool knit-along. I snapped a "not so great" photo of my first knucks progress in the pair. I have never knit any glove-like items in my two and a half year knit-career. They always seemed fussy and made me a bit nervous. So, I am giving this a whirl.

So far, so good. The finger tubes were easy to make. I zoomed through that part of it within an hour. The problem I ran into was connecting the finger tubes on two needles. I almost had stitches slip off the one end, as I was trying to get stitches from the other end on the needle. It was a mess. I managed to get it though. I just wanted to give you all a heads up to be careful at that point of the pattern. I am working evenly on the 1.75 inches before the thumb attachment currently.

I will share more of my mishaps, or progress in a later entry. For now...I made it past the fingers. WHEW! I think I can breathe for a bit now.


I have written an entry on my personal blog as to my end of the day progress on my first "knuck." You can catch it here. A photo included. I am sorry for cutting this short. I don't have the time, this evening, to type out the entry here. Toodles!

You can use the upload feature in your entry posting area. It looks like a little photo at the top where all the icons are. Click on it and it will load a pop up window. Follow the instructions and you can upload a picture. It's easy. Toodles.

Lookin' good Lani. Once you get past the joins, the rest is smooth sailing.

I'm interested to see how the wool ease works, but y'know that felted tweed is so light and perfect!

sometimes when i work with dpns i use those little needle stops on the end. those little pencil eraser thingies that aren't for pencils...the ones that keep your stitches from falling off.
