Having picked up a vintage Patons and Baldwin pattern from Rainbow Valley Vintage the second pair of gloves are underway, this pair include a customised wrist.
This pair are coming up a little larger than the pair from The People’s Friend. Whilst the wrist on both pairs is the same size, the actual glove has around a third more stitches than the welt. The corrugated rib on this pair gives a snug fitting welt.
I have almost made it to the knuckles on both hands and hope that my four inch needles arrive soon as I am running out of fie needles to store work in progress.
Sourcing yet more needles the other day I found missbabs fibers on Ebay. Great selection of Hiya Hiya needles at a good price with unbelievably low postage costs.
