Anything Knitted and Crocheted

Welcome to my blog. I hope to blog about my knitting and crocheting as well as everyday life. The patterns that I post are original and as such there is copyright on them. When they are based on another pattern there is a link to the pattern.

My husband and I adopted a beautiful dog named Leo. He is a dachshund and absolutely adorable! we adopted him on June 23, 2010 and he has become the love of our lives.

I love to share patterns that I find along the way or to talk about some of the neatest designers that are out there today, so I love to post links to the designs or the designers.

So grab a cup a and sit and enjoy the blog.

Bruce's Fingerless Gloves...

Well I finally got them finished.  I crocheted the New Moon Fingerless Gloves, which I found on Ravelry. Her Pattern was a lot longer than mine.  I crocheted the 4 rounds of post stitches that make the ribbing, then I crocheted 4" of hdc before crocheting the thumb area.  Bruce also wanted his with separate finger holes, so I crocheted those.  They were worked over 3 stitches on each side, with a chain 2 to connect the finger holes. He tried them on and wore them, saying that his typing is much better and his knuckles don't hurt as much.  I am so glad the he loves them.  Here are some pictures.  I used Bernat Glow in the Dark yarn which has been discontinued and paired it with Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball as the Bernat yarn is a thinner yarn than a typical worsted weight yarn.  All in all I am pleased with how they turned out.
