Gloves and Linen Stitch

mr.cullen's picture

Hi everyone. I just finished knitting a pair of fingerless gloves. I used some leftover yarn from other projects. I still have to weave in those pesky little ends and block them before I wear them in public. And the other thing I have been working on learning is some new stitch patterns using cotton yarn in small rectangles. The "linen stitch" has a wonderful texture and lays fairly flat (it does curl and roll slightly at the edges). I think I will make a couple of washcloths with these stitch patterns.

Anyway, the chill of late fall is here in Minnesota. Very soon I will have to pull out my heavy winter coat. Good I am ready for winter weather with my knitted mittens and hat.....Happy knitting, creating, and learning. Cullen

Really nice work, Cullen.

Really nice work, Cullen. I've not played around with linen stitch for a long time. I may have to revisit it.

Nice colors on the gloves

Nice colors on the gloves Cullen! I've never knit the linen stitch before; it looks almost like a crocheted moss stitch of which I've always been quite fond. Nice work!

I hope they keep you as warm

I hope they keep you as warm as they look. Great work. I like the look of the linen stitch there. I may have to play with that a bit and come up with some ideas for it. Have a warm and cozy fall to winter.
