Slightly Wordier Finger-Down Gloves

I finished the first prototype- it's a little snug for me, so I'll call this size Small Ladies. The next pair will have maybe 4 more stitches in the hand, though I haven't quite figured out how to divide that out among the fingers (8 stitches would be easier to manage, but that's too many for a medium hand, though it might work for a large). I made a roll cuff hem because that edge is a whole lot stretchier than binding off in ribbing. I like the look.

At any rate, I am happy with the process, and will now need to fine tune the technique. I'm already getting requests to teach this pattern, which means I probably should get it all worked out first... heh...

Also- my book proposal went to my agent, and from there it'll go to my editor. I'll keep all y'all posted.

so that is way gloves are knit!?! When your book comes out I will try them. I have been re reading your mystery books and enjoying them on my kindle as much as the first time!

Not usually- most gloves are knit by starting at the cuff and working up to the fingers. I wanted to try a different technique, and I'm happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for the kind words on the mysteries!
