A labour of love

I have finally finished a pair of fingerless gloves in a herringbone treble stitch.

They started off as an Easter project and 6 months later I was still grappling with how to add in the thumbs. A trip to Kiki’s sorted that out – thank you Kiera! (kikiscraftcorner.co.uk), and finally I worked up enough confidence to finish them. Made in New Lanark double knitting wool (newlanarkshop.co.uk) in Damson on a 4mm hook. The main stitch is herringbone treble, with the shaping for the thumbs done in herringbone half treble. The rib effect at the top is produced by doing a treble stitch into alternating front and back posts of the stitch below.
They are for my daughter who I know will appreciate my efforts!
