Knitted gloves



I knitted these gloves in an evening but am really bummed out they don't fit, they're just a bit loose. Would anyone like them? You probably need big hands. I was inspired by these and then these. (check out my links I'm quite proud I can do it now without any help from the teenager)I've started another pair 'cos I'm determined to make some that fit. The poor old sewing machine in the background has been a bit redundant in the past few weeks. I'm tossing around an idea for a crafty group get together once a month, a friend suggested it a year ago and I've been mulling it over since then. It would be a great source of inspiration and sharing I think.

Your gloves are gorgeous. What a shame they don't fit! Are they knit with 100% wool? Perhaps you could slightly felt them down to size?

A crafty group sounds fun!

I agree with rennagayle, perhaps you could slightly felt them?

I wish I lived near you so I could be part of your crafty group.

I'm definatley giong to give the felting a try. It'd probably be a good theme for a crafty get together. Thanks guys.

yes - that is the answer - felt them a bit! I started a knitting group - weekly - in a cafe in my home town - it was slow to start - with sometimes only me! but now we have over 20 regulars and do far more than knit - it has been one of the nicest things I have been involved with - so .... go for it!

Lovely gloves - felting is a very good idea. I would love to be part of your craft group (sigh) it's just a smidge too far to come. Mary
