Archive swap

So I could either try to figure out how to archive my livejournal blog here, or just repost pics.. guess which I am chosing! ;)

Here is the first batch.
Finger Down Glove.

Finished Glove

These are pics of the finger-down gloves that I made without a pattern! I was so proud of myself! They actually fit too! The wool is really scratchy so I don't wear them, but they are a great prototype.

More to come. :)

Nice job on the gloves! I want to make myself some gloves but I'm not fond of how you have to knit the fingers working from the cuff up. Guess I'll have to research how to knit from the finger down. Any tips?

I used a figure 8 caston for the fingers so there is no excess yarn or holes at the tips. I left all the fingers on st holders so that I could easily pick up the sts once they were all finished to knit the hand without a seam. If you like I can send you the pattern I wrote, its not perfect but it should give you an idea of how to do it. It was surprisingly easy!
