From Sally — Continue to Be Our Valentine?

Filed under: Sweetheart Glovelets — surly @ 9:21 pm

We wanted to post the pattern for our Sweetheart Glovelets in time for Valentine’s Day, so we went ahead and put up the pattern before I finished knitting the second glove. Indeed, the first one was still damp from being blocked — that’s why it wasn’t shown being worn. (Besides, I kind of liked seeing it surrounded by all of those goodies.)

So here are two photos of the finished pair being worn. No more candy or cookies, though; they seem to have mysteriously disappeared.

PS from Susan: I found a tiny error in the chart for the left glovelet, Size large/Extra Large: one YO symbol was in the wrong place on the thumb increases.  I fixed the chart and replaced the pdf with the revised one.  Most knitters would figure it out as they were knitting, so I hope no one had a problem with it.

  2. From Susan — I had to rip my first one back completely and start over :( …I think I’m on track now!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing the pattern. It is very lovely!
    Also the Roselin hoodie is very very beautiful … I am sure planning to make it some day.
    Once again, thank you.

  5. I thought you would like that — plus it ties in with the Valentine theme. I’m so sly.

  6. Thank you for another lovely pattern, I just love the frilly cuff. Wish I had some of your inspiration!

  7. Thank you, that was very sweet of you. I never need much of an excuse to order more cashmere, and your glovelets are the perfect excuse.

  8. Those gloves are so sweet. I can imagine them very good in white with a girls lace dress or even for a bridesmaide.

  9. If I needed to make a smaller size, other than using smaller needles, could you suggest what the pattern repeat would be? My grown daughter, who might possibly be part fairy, had hands that measure 6 1/4″ across. These would be ideal for her if she could keep them on. :)

  10. Sally- Very artistic photos- I think you may have missed your calling.

    Where is the assistant? Touring for Taco Bell?

  11. I love the Glovelets, but I love the gorgeous photos even more! Sally, I know you do a lot of photography – does picture-taking create as much passion as knitting, or is it a sideline to yarn and needles? You are really good at both!

    And a nosy question I’ve been wondering about with these warmer days – whatever happened to your Silver Belle? Did you rip it out? I hope not – I thought it looked lovely and would make a nice spring jacket. Just curious – would love to see some more pictures of it.

  12. Oh, I love these! That color of red is so rich. I might just have to make some.

  13. My pair is already started and coming along nicely. Thanks for the pattern.

  14. Thank you so much for the pattern! I am looking very forward to making them.

  15. Just beautiful! I wonder where the cookies and candies went? A Valentine’s day mystery!

  16. I just love reading your blog and seeing all the gorgeous finished projects. I have been planning the Pearl Buck Swing Jacket. As some have mentioned, I decided to plot out another diamond to make it longer. I really like your pleat going in rather than out. Did you reverse the order of the single purl and the slip one as to purl? (does that make any sense?) I can make a good case for doing it both ways. Your fronts seem to lay nice and flat, did you do anything different with them? Thanks for any direction you can give.

  17. After rereading my post I thought I should clarify–the fronts of the sweater seem to be nice and flat. I did notice that the picture in the magazine had the front edges rolling a little.

  18. Adorable glovelets! I agree with Lorraine….Sally is a very artistic photographer. I love coming here to see the latest projects, but the photography alone is often worth the trip.
