Here’s the Morse Code hat from earlier, now with its matching friends The Floves. This is my second pair of floves, and while still a PITA–they came out much nicer. I probably wouldn’t choose to knit any type of glove again any time soon… :doh:
:teehee: I thought floves was a typo at first!
Everything looks great - I love the colors!
Ohhhh… I get it. Fingerless gloves= floves (it takes me a while to get stuff)
It looks great! :cheering:
I forgot that you can’t really see the fact that they’re fingerless in this picture. Heh…The pattern is a modification of Knitty’s “Cigar”
Both look great! What is it that you didn’t enjoy about knitting the floves ?(cool word btw)
Eh…I dunno, I guess everybody has things they do or don’t prefer and gloves are on my “don’t” list. I just didn’t enjoy working the fingers, and I kept getting weird holes near the joins that I’d have to graft as I went or figure out a way to pick up stitches and then knit them together with others to close up the holes, etc etc etc. Just a lot of effort for a product that didn’t thrill me. :shrug:
so is anyone gonna post a pic fo them modelling the hat and floves?
Hmm…I’m gifting them to my friend this weekend. Maybe I can get him tipsy enough for a few silly poses.
Sadly…no pics of the recipient wearing the hat and gloves. I gifted them last night and he hates them, I can tell. :verysad:
I’m a leetle disappointed and maybe a bit heartbroken…cuz they actually came out pretty nice looking. And he requested these items specifically so I worked hard on them. And they fit. But he doesn’t hide his opinion well and I could tell he thought they were lame, and he’ll never wear them.
Stupid best friend. :verysad:
I would be well vexed if i went to all that bother to knit a man a hat and he went off like that :-x
Why dont you model them then ?
I think the hat and glvoes are lovely, id wear them gladly
They are no longer in my possession…they’re his now, likely languishing in his apartment. Ah well…someday I’ll actually knit something for myself. I think I’m a glutton for punishment. :teehee:
Truly, I’m not quite up to being ready for a thin sweater of the sort I would actually wear. So I’m knitting smaller things I’d never wear (like hats, gloves, scarves, etc) and then finding people to force them upon. Heheh…serves me right! I enjoy the process though.
