• Throw Back Thursday Lacey Mitts

    Posted on October 3, 2013 by in Knitting, Latest Updates, Throw Back Thursdays

     

    A good friend of mine who was one of my amazing sample knitters, asked me to create a pattern for her based on a sweater she saw on a television show. I cannot recall the name of the show, something about housewives, but not one of the reality ones…. Anyways.

    She picked out the stitch pattern, Chalice Lace and made me a swatch and I designer her the sweater, created the pattern and gave it to her. I wonder where that sweater is . . .

    A became infatuated with the stitch pattern and played around with it. This was also around the time of the call for submissions of the very first  Jane Austin Knits. I had the idea to make a pair of fingerless mitts with this design.  I devised a thumb gusset and planned to make the thumb on the side so they would not be left handed or right handed.

    I have never had good luck sending submissions into Interweave, so I chickened out and stashed the project away along with a really good set of rosewood double point needles I see now.

    Pictured here is the easy open seam mitt and not the new thumb gusset. That is one of my issues with designing, I like to figure out how to put a design together and once I do that I do not need to go any further, so it sit lingers.

    So Do I

    Keep it for Some day,

    Rip it and Recycle

    Or Give it away.

    I look forward to your comments,

    Blissful Knitting,

    Rip and recycle, other than being a woodwind player in a marching band, I’ve never been able to figure out the need for fingerless gloves….then you can have your beautiful knitting needles back….unless you don’t want them back due to their oddly short length!

    I’m not a fingerless mitt person, I would bag them. The only thing I like is the stitch pattern. Are you impressed, I tuned into today’s Throwback Thursday after you told me about it over the weekend. 🙂
