I need a little help to adjust placement of the stitches on my right hand glove to knit the little/pinkie finger but other than that, the pattern is a breeze to knit through! The accompanying video lessons are BRILLIANT I have to say best yet for advice on knitting gloves/mitts SO glad I joined in. Sue x

Thanks for the views of what your project looks like MIDPROJECT--that is very helpful.. I notice you gave this five stars--most difficult rating. Have you made other mittens/gloves. I am scared to take on a five-star pattern! Which hpattern should I start with if I only ever have knitted flat things and hats on circulars and dpns?

Like you, Rubysmom, I'm a little intimidated by the difficulty rating. I think I'm gonna work up to the gloves slowly. During the hurricane I made my first attempt at mittens (by candle light). After making one and pulling it apart, I pressed on. They turned out pretty good. I think it's the fingers that look like they will take some patience. If you've only done flat things and hats, you may want to try to tackle socks next. That's what I did. I like small projects that I can carry around, as opposed to big afghans or sweaters. Good luck.

Mary--I didn't suffer the hurricane here in Ca, but I can;t get my class feeding on the computer, so I am pretty much going by readin the directions--and I too am making my first attempt at mittens--the five-n one-pattern. I am on the ribbing with Renew yarn on 5DPNS. Kind of fiddly , but so far so good. I did long tail cast on even though directions say to do backwards loop. Didn't Marly demonstrate long-tail cast on at the beginning of the lesson? Isn't that a better more reinforced method of casting on? Does anybody know?. Mary, I would lOVE to do socks--but they seem far more compicated than mittens to me because of the weight of the yarn and the heel flap--but what do I know--haven't done it yet--should I have taken the sock knitting class first?

If you watch the videos (someone sails they're just using the written instruction) you shouldn't find the gloves all that difficult. If you are new to circular knitting start with the fingerless pieces, so you can get used to knitting in a circle. Once you behave that down the mittens will be easy and the glove with finger is just the same as the mittens except you add a few more small circles. Nothing to be afraid of at all. I suggest start with DPNs if you've not done circular knitting before. And just remember, practice, practice...you had to practice when you learned knitting on straight needles, remember? If the difficulty rating scares you -- ignore it., seriously, ignore it, nobody knows how difficult it will be for you except you! Go into the project unafraid and you'll do much better.

I am planning to wait about this pattern with the fingers separate. I want to get some short dpn's for this job.
