Urchining and fluffy cuffs

While going through the photos on my phone, I was delighted to find that I did indeed have a picture of the Urchin hat and fluffy cuffs gloves I made my sister for her birthday. I must say I am particularly proud of the gloves. I hate making gloves. But she wanted gloves and staunchly declared her hate of all things mitten and fingerless. So gloves she should have :). I’ve never been able to avoid holes in the fingers. Plus long tubes of 12 stiches divided on 3 DPNs is a pain. I looked at several glove patterns and tried one…. But I always, always have those darn holes. Finally I use the technique for under arms in a top-down raglan sweater. Voila! A few cast-on stiches on one finger and picked-up stitches on another make a beautifully secure seam between fingers. Still haven’t solved the annoying fingers.
