The story behind them is that I had wanted to make J another pair of socks, and she picked out the Kristy pattern from Cookie A's Sock Innovation book.
My stockinette gauge swatch was correct, only I had forgotten that I knit my cables super tight, and I had already finished quite a bit of it before I found out it was too small. So, I decided to knit gloves instead. I had never knit gloves before, and couldn't find a pattern that fit my gauge, so I made things up as I went along (not recommended, you'd think I would have learned by now). Still, I'm mostly happy with them.
Casted On: August 31, 2009
Finished: June 13, 2010
Yarn: Trekking sock yarn, dyed with black beans
Pattern: Kristi (ravelry link)
I didn't write down the pattern, but, I can tell you that the pinkie finger was 21 stitches and the rest were 24 stitches, and that for most of the fingers I decreased using:
Row 1: knit 4, k2tog, repeat
Row 2: Knit 3, k2tog, repeat
Row 3: Knit 2, k2tog, repeat
Row 4: K1, k2tog, repeat
Row 5: k2tog, repeat
At least I didn't finish during the hottest part of the year ...
