Thank goodness for the back page of catalogs :-) When I began to carefully review the 20-odd pages of info about making gloves for Scott, I realized I was going to need some serious measurements. Did I mention that he's totally princess-and-the-pea when it comes to gloves?
I also realized that they'd be far more useful, here in Canada where it really does get freakin' cold for the hands, to have a way to use the gloves with the iPhone. Whereupon I sourced this:
|Etsy Vendor: Urbanstein|
The vendor is Canadian, and the price is totally reasonable. All in, 5 yards cost me 7 bucks. That'll last for a many pairs of gloves, not that I'm committing to glove-making in any meaningful way.
So, whatcha think of the thread? Whatcha think of using the back of a mag to draw your husband's hand? Let's talk!
Brief Update: I'd be lying if I told you I've figured out how to use the DPNs. I'm knitting the gloves using magic loop - so far. I guess, necessity is the mother of invention so, if I can't make the fingers using magic loop, I'll just have to learn. Really, though, I cast on 3 times with the DPNs and I could not mentally grasp where to go from there.
