Q&A with Dzinghis

Jettquilts asked:
These look great together!
Dzinghis answered:
Thank you !
mrseggman asked:
Is this self striping yarn? Very nice!
Dzinghis answered:
Yes - sort of .. it's a sock yarn from Opal from their rainforest series - color name "kunterbunt". Glad you like it. It's nice for kids !
bluebonnetgirl asked:
Did the class teach you how to make these fingerless gloves with a cover? Or did you take a few different lesson parts and put them together? I need to make some fingerless gloves for my son with a cover and would prefer to have a visual lesson/class, but I've also never knitted gloves before. Was this difficult to do? Have you made gloves before you took this class?
Dzinghis answered:
yes, it's been taught in the class - right at the beginning. All I did was to choose a thiner yarn and adopt the number of stitches so that it fitted my hand. and no, it was not difficult. They are my first pair of gloves ...
Marly Bird asked:
omg, omg, omg I so LOVE these!
Dzinghis answered:
Thank you so much, Marly ! But I have to return the compliment ! Your class is awesome ! It's so full of great ideas !
Sheri Lea asked:
How many stitches and what size needles??? Love the gloves, I would like to try, opal is one of my favorite yarns!
Dzinghis answered:
I am sorry, but I forgot ... and they were a present for a disabled boy and are out of my reach now, so I could not count them now. The needle size was 2,5mm. The cuff is knit double, ie knit up to the height you want the cuff to be, purl one row and then knit the same height again. Once the part before the purl round and the one after the purl round are of the same height, make one round by knitting one stitch of the cast-on round and one stitch on the needles together. The cuff is then finished and you do not have to sew it together afterwards. As to the number of stitches needed, I take it, it's best if you do a gauge swatch and take the number of stitches needed .
