Here is the other project I have started. This is "Musica" also available as a free pattern on Ravelry. These are fingerless gloves (without any finger separations in the hand). I specifically wanted this type of pattern because the 2 kids I wanted to make these for are both guitar players. As I was searching I found this pattern with the music notes on it - Perfect!! I figured these would be great for outdoor gigs.
My Fair Isle knitting leaves much to be desired so this first one will probably just be a practice one. I'm not doing the full pattern - I think I'll just do the music notes around the wrist and then do the rest of the glove solid. When I started this one I forgot to adjust my rounds so that they would not "spiral" up the side and my floats are too tight at the spots where the needles meet. They aren't so tight that they are unwearable but still................it bugs me.
This is the first FI pattern I have done in a LONG time so I'm glad to have some practice with it. It forces me to practice my continental knitting!
This pair will be for Nathan since these are in the Georgia Tech (NOT Steelers) colors. The other pair will be for Ian and I am undecided on the colors for those as of yet.
