The title is a shout out to Battle Star Galactica (Go, Cylons — woo hoo!). Anyway, all these glovelets have happened before and will happen again…
I have been knitting up massive quantities of glovelets. Most are being made with my new favorite glovelet pattern: Baby Fan Mitts. Here is a picture of the most recent pair, with two more pairs to go (black just does not photograph well!):
Baby Fan Mitts using Misti Alpaca Worsted, US Sz 3 dpns
I have a new pattern to add to my repertoire for glovelets. I wanted to make a pair with stash worsted weight yarn, so my old standby “Fetching Glovelets” came to mind. I could not bring myself to make another pair — at least not right now. But as luck would have it, I stumbled upon a free pattern designed by good friend and loyal reader, Twinset Ellen. The pattern is called “Handed Yes, Fingered No: Mitts That Fit” and is free on the blog she shares with her twin sister, Jan.
Sublime Yarns Cashmere Merino Silk Aran — 75% merino, 20% silk, 5% cashmere (color Clipper, 2 skeins, 188 yards, US Sz 5 dpns)
They are a very quick knit, nicely written pattern, and fit very well. The pattern calls for two colors that stripe throughout. I used a solid color, so mine looked a little plain. I crocheted a simple edging to jazz them up a bit.
On a completely unrelated note, the other day I got an email from a Los Angeles knitting store called Knit Culture. They said they had just made our Topsy Turvy Moebius and were going to do a class on it! What can I say — this was exciting news!!
Now, stop reading and start knitting!
Special Note from Kendyl:
“On an only slightly related note- Lt. (or Captain) Starbuck aka Katee Sackhoff wandered into my open house (I’m a Realtor in CA) a few weeks ago. I did not behave well- as in “cool”. Pretty surreal to have a character you are somewhat obsessed with walk right into you.”
I am so envious!! Starbuck is one of my favorite characters — I ? her!! In the new BSG, Starbuck remained a hard drinking, cigar smoking, fighter pilot — the only thing they changed was the gender!!
