Just saying "Hi"....

and thanks for allowing me to join in your KAL! Needless to say, the gloves are gorgeous, and I am anxious to get going.... Hmmm - April 15th, huh!! Oh Well, time to plan....

To introduce myself, my name is Kathy, and I live in Iowa. I am a long-time knitter. Usually of small objects, as I seem to lose interest on big projects before I get them finished. So - my loves are socks, mittens, and "Glittens". I have recently finished some "glittens" and photos are on my blog, if anyone is interested (Feb 27th post). They were made from DK weight yarn. I am not terribly experienced with gloves from fingering wt, but hopefully I will be able to manage. The end product certainly seems well worth the trouble. They are indeed beautiful. Hats off to you Karen!

I look forward to starting soon, and seeing all the beautiful gloves that we (all 27 of us!) will make! Good luck to everyone!!

i LOVE the glittens

i want to make something similar
for a friend .. only NOT as colorful
she wants a pair to match a hat & scarf she has

The Feb 21st post on my blog gives a little history - where the pattern came from - and other examples. Sorry - perhaps I should have mentioned that date, rather than the Feb 27th post.
