Bayerische Gloves

While I was browsing through the Ravelry pattern finder a couple weeks ago, I came across this beautiful sock pattern by Eunny Jang.  It looked pretty time consuming with all the cables, but I liked it so well I decided to cast on anyway. 🙂  Things went just fine through the ribbed cast on edge, but then I hit the cabling.  I like following charts to some extent – but wow – these were intensive charts.  I also like complicated patterns, but only if they’re memorizeable.  This wasn’t.  It’s 4 charts (14 rows each before it repeats) of different directions.  After it took me about 4 hours to get through the first repeat, I decided that no matter how beautiful it was, the pattern wasn’t for me.  I don’t have that much patience. 🙂   

 

So, then I was faced with the question of what to do with the intricate, 4″ ring of cabling I had completed.  Frog it?  Nope.  After spending hours pouring over the cabling charts, that was not a fun prospect.  Then it came to me: turn it into a glove.  Genious! 😀 

 

I pulled out The Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns and figured that I’d need to make a man’s size glove.  Because the cabled “wristband” was really meant to be the top edge of a sock, it would be swimming on my hand if I made it for myself.  Bummer, but I still didn’t have to take it all out! 

 

I’m on the second glove now and am right up to the start of the cabling.  I’m still waiting for the strength to start. 😉
