Ive been a licensed massage therapist, a yarn dyer for a small hand-dyed yarn company, and spent many years as an office slave. As previously noted, I compulsively knit, design and spin in my free time. If Im not doing any of the above, you can find me playing music in the band Shalloboi, in which I sing and play drums.
The House of Mirrors Fingerless Gloves have a twisted-stitch panel amidst a sea of stockinette. From row to row, you will shift your stitches from knit to purl and vice versa.
Like many things you'll see at the circus, these mitts are not what they seem! Sure, the cables look intricate, but I actually found this project to be faster and easier to knit than the socks (figure that!). You'll have to pay attention as you work from a non-repeating chart, but once you leave the house of mirrors, the results will be worth it.
26 stitches and 34 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette Stitch
