  1. Hmm… Nice gloves. I haven’t the slightest clue what your instructions mean because I haven’t the slightest clue how to knit. Do these gloves have no fingers at all (like cut off at the first knuckles)? Or are there partial cut off fingers? I can’t tell from the photos. Cool though. I see you also make hats and scarves. Anything particularly unique or unusual that you have made? I have seen some pretty cool knitted things around the internet.

  2. Great work, Connie! They say that knitting is a meditative and calming activity. I have not done it myself in a long while, I used to take private lessons from my grandmother and liked to knit some very simple scarves. I admire your patience and dedication to create those accessories. I still have a great gift from my grandmother – a huge beautiful white shawl. It is great when you can use various materials and tools too. My mother used to have a professional knitting machine in our small apartment, the size of the piano, she was trying to get some extra income from actually knitting at home.It is a great hobby and you have plenty of ways to fulfill your creativity and to explore new ways of doing it. #cs5711

    1. I’d like to skydive but the idea of SCUBA diving scares My wife also has a fear of SCUBA diving. She loves to snrelok, but refused to strap a tank on her back. Me on the other hand, there’s not much out there i wouldn’t try at least once. 😀

I’ve been wanting todo this type of crafts, but i don’t have a lot of time maybe if I find the time to do it I will come back and get some tips from your blog. I would love to do knitted finger gloves they’re so cute #cs5711
