At Quince & Co Beautiful brioche goes to colorful new heights in our newest shawl: Introducing Tiger Flower, in soft, silken Tern!

Designed by Katrine Birkenwasser, this crescent shawl uses two colors of our fingering-weight wool/silk yarn, with pretty welting stripes and a border of blossoms of alternating color.

A shawl in Tern is a shawl for all seasons, and Tiger Flower is one to reach for any time of year.

Knitting Pipeline Gloves KAL

The JasperPatch Hooray! Just got home from a morning birding - handknit sweater, gloves, fingerless mittens and hat. On our way to glove weather, and dealing with binoculars is so much easier with gloves rather than mittens.

I am almost certain that I will be making a second pair of Lanark. (Sweet Paprika Designs) My first pair are slightly felted now, and I have had to reknit one of the fingers (I am hard on my gloves!). I plan to use some MCN from my stash, just depends how the variegated knits up in the pattern.

Bayjena: Aire’s Gloves to Knit by Nancy Bush  Piecework July/Aug 2017

SHIPZL Ellen from MA: I’m going to make Foxhall Gloves by The Rainey Sisters. I’m finding their Glove Guide (which comes with the pattern) to be really helpful.

Turbogal: I’m hoping I’ll find time to get this KAL done - I’ve wanted to knit gloves for a while. Also, I have some of the silver spun yarn in stash - that is conductive, so you can work touchscreen electronics without removing your gloves. I’ve decided to try the Layering Basics, Gloves pattern, using SilverSpun yarn for the fingers.  Pattern by Tori Forest

RachelFTZ: … I think I’m going to do the Dimorphous Mittens (Miriam Felton), which are gloves that have mittens layered over them. I have a nice silk blend that I’m thinking about for the glove part, and then using a coordinating wool for the mitten. Hmmm…

JCRandall Making Modified Army Gloves in Bartlett Yarns for my son at his request. They are small so I didn’t decrease across the hand as the pattern suggests. Dense, warm and windproof.

Knitting is some thing i have seen most of the ladies in my family doing it. When wool and needles were found it indicated that winter has stepped in. Now, knitting has become easy and diverse. Thank for all the information given in the post.
