Project 52: Week 1
At the encouragement of some of my GentleChristianMothers.com friends, I’m joining in this year’s Project 52. (Honestly I don’t know if this is an official thing or just something some people have made up. Either way, it sounds cool to me.) It’s a challenge meant to keep us crafting all year–as though I need any more motivation. Each week we’ll post a picture of the crafting we did that past week. It’s also a great way to see the progression of projects throughout the year.
So here’s my first post. I’m working on a pair of fingerless gloves that I can wear while typing. This is my fifth crochet project, and as always I’ve learned something that was just one small step up from where I was skill-wise: back post double crochet (bpdc) and foundationless single crochet (fsc). Here is the first glove:
What’s funny is that I finished this two days ago–and today I received a birthday gift in the mail from a dear friend: USB-powered warming fingerless gloves. (I complain a lot on FB about my frigid office. my need of this type of item is well-known and well-documented.)
It’s far from perfect–it’s way longer than I expected and I ended up with this weird hole by the thumb. But overall it’s not bad, and I kind of like that they’re long enough to go up under my sleeve; I hate it when there’s a gap between the end of a sleeve and the bottom of a glove. I haven’t tried typing with it yet; I want to wait until I have the full set before I give them a whirl. But this first one only took a few days to do, so hopefully I’ll have them done by next week.
