Knucks

Knucks.jpg

Presenting Knucks from Knitty. I used Rowan Wool Cotton in color 955 Ship Shape, which is a slightly blueish green. It's really soft and yummy to work with.

Size 4 needles as per the pattern, of course I used a circular and did it Magic Loop style instead of on dpn's but that's not really a pattern modification. For the fingers I did 7 rows on each of them. If I do this pattern again I'd do a couple fewer rows on the pinky finger, but the rest of them were fine.

On the cuff I did 2 rows of 1x1 rib, then shifted the rib over one and did 3 rows, shifted again and went 4 rows, and one more time for 5 rows.

See that little strand at the bottom of the picture? That's how much was left when I bound off the second glove. Next time I'm dividing my ball in half! That was waaaaay more stress as I was finishing than I'd like!

These now live in the control room at work. The temperature in there is erratic at best and it can get quite cold. I tend to be fine with it but I'm a cold loving weirdo. Hats and jackets aren't unusual in there. I was watching people sitting on their hands to warm them up between segments so I decided to make these for everyone to share! They're incredibly soft and I'll probably make a pair for myself at some point.

They were also a very fast knit, just a couple days. It's always fun to have an FO so soon after starting! (that'd be a couple days at the end of October in case you were wondering)
