Hi everyone! So… I started a simple fingerless glove/wrist warmer pattern. It’s 1.5" 2x2 rib for the cuff with stockinette st for the ‘body’ ending with 2x2 rib, sounds simple right? Well, the pattern is made a bit more complicated because of this:
I decided to knit both at the same time, but I don’t have any circulars long enough yet for 2-at-a-time. So I thought “Lets try the 2-in-1 method.” Well my first attempt ended up with the cuff knitted together. So I ripped it all out and tried again, after I went back and read the article on Knitty about 2-in-1 socks and found out what I did wrong. My second attempt was better, except I’m terrible with holding 2 yarn strands, so the ribbing was annoying with moving the yarn out of the way. Once I got to the st st part I decided to make keeping them separate easier, so I’m doing the outside glove inside out. This way the inside yarn gets to stay inside (to knit) and the outside one stays outside (to purl). No need to move the yarn out of the way since it’s already out of the way. It’s going well so far, but I think I’ll prefer the 2-at-a-time on circulars once my new circulars arrive.
