From Both of Us — It’s That Time Again

Filed under: Sweetheart Glovelets — Both Sisters @ 4:02 pm

In 2009, we designed a simple but very “heartfelt” glovelet pattern as a gift to our readers.  Because the time of year is again upon us, we felt like reminding all of you about our free Sweetheart Glovelet pattern in time for some Valentine’s Day knitting.

Where are YOUR Sweetheart Glovelets??

And an update from Susan

I DID wear my Vogue #25 today!!  Last evening I took it to knitting group to show Ellie, who had expressed an interest in making the pattern.  She tried it on over her sweater and I liked it!  I decided to try it out at my Friday knitting group and thought it was almost cute.

Janetc asked why I changed the direction of the front bands.  I knit the fronts and back together as one piece and did not want to have to figure out buttonhole placement right out of the chute, so I cheated and did the buttonbands afterward.

PS: Ellie took my picture at knitting on Friday and asked why I cut my head off.  I told her I would and because of that, was not really posing for a head shot.  I hate pictures of myself.  I am very unphotogenic.  But for Ellie, here is the original:

If I could just lose the double chin!!

From Both of Us — Something ‘Sweet’

From Susan — My Little Sweethearts…

I finished a pair of the Sweetheart Glovelets for me — and the added bonus is that I already have a matching hat!  I used leftover yarn from the Lace Tam (Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk DK), and the lace pattern itself is very similar so they look cute together. 

They are soaking wet in this picture, so I can’t wear them, but glad to get them done :)
