Cast On: Basic Gloves

I cast on this weekend for a pair of basic gloves, recipe from the Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns (which, by the way, definitely needs to go on my “to-buy” list!). Knitting for me seems to happen in spurts – the last time I knit anything seriously was last January when I made a bunch of hats for a knit-along over on Ravelry.com. Yes, it was for the January Hat Trick in the hockey group… no one should be the least bit surprised by that!

These gloves are going to be hockey-themed, thanks to Brynna, who recently opened a shop on Etsy called Draygone Yarnes. I bought a skein of fingering-weight wool in the “Boston Bruins” colorway.

I’ve never knit with such fine yarn, but now have about 2 inches of ribbing done on the first glove. So far, so good!
