Introduction: Photographer's Gloves
I made these fingerless mittens for a photographer friend of mine. I had made Fetchings for myself, and realized some mods needed to be made after field testing them. I bought some soft and cozy Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Turquoise Mix and set off making this pair. I added interest with a offset cabling pattern, and made seed stitch palms for variety (and to make the right and left gloves easy to tell apart). I lengthened them so they almost reach the fingertips to keep the hands warmer (but fingertips free to press various tiny buttons on a camera), and added repeats on the wrists so that pesky sliver of skin between the sleeve and the glove is sure not to show. She loves the gloves, as do I. It was really hard to give them up, so I'm going to cast on another pair in the very near future!
