Knitting New Mittens And Gloves - Robin Melanson

Knitting New Mittens and Gloves by Robin Melanson. I love this book! A lot of knitting books have a selection of patterns which can be annoying. If say you love the sweater pattern and the hat pattern and buy the book you end up with patterns for things you don't want. So I really like this approach of having a book that is about one thing, you know what you're getting. The patterns in this book are great really different and not just standard gloves, mittens and handwarmers. I especially like where the author introduces each project with a description of the glove and what inspired it and the name. I haven't knit a full glove before and so as part of the Ravelry Olympics I'm going to knit a pair of gloves from this book. I hope to make the Ceangaltas mittens during the summer olympics. I bought some lovely Lamb's Pride wool today in two different shades so hopefully it'll turn out well.

I love Lamb's Pride wool! Did you find that here? Or was it sent from the US?

I've knit a couple simple gloves. They are very fiddly but once you've made something that useful it all feels worth it. I hope you post when you're done.
