I have made at least 3 people happy
Zach is happy to have his malabrigo fingerless gloves for guitar picking. He opted for the to the second knuckle version. This way he can roll the tops back when he needs to for certain songs, and leave them long for other times.
This should serve as a Finishing Friday entry for MajorKnitter Jen's blog, and for a Peaceful palm contribution to Nona's knit-a-long. There that's 3 happy people. :)
I used size 6 straights. Cast on 60 stitches and knit every row. I added a thumbhole about half way through, using basic buttonhole technique, and finished it off with a 3 needle bind off. I knitted in some very thin black elastic to help it keep its shape. One skein of malabrigo was more than enough yarn. Frugal hungarian cost: around 12.00 for the yarn and elastic. Happy son: priceless.
