At long last, my Knab Fingerless Gloves are finished. The pattern is in Ann Feitelson’s The Art of Fair Isle Knitting: History, Technique, Color & Patterns. I used Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. By far the hardest part of the project was narrowing down the colors. Loop and Leaf in Santa Barbara carries a veritable rainbow of tantalizing shades. All of which I wanted to take home with me. Fortunately Celeste, with her expert eye for Fair Isle, was able to help me narrow it down.
Many thanks to my steadfast husband Steve for photographing the gloves.
