Easy Knitted Fingerless Gloves -- a Crafty Weekends Review & Link Party

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Fall begins tomorrow and soon the weather will catch back up with the seasons. It has been rather warm here this weekend. It is time to start thinking about the cooler weather and getting ready for it. Today I am going to share a book about knitting fingerless gloves. They are perfect for those cool days when your hands just feel cold but you still want use of your fingers. 

The book is Easy Knitted Fingerless Gloves by Nihon Vogue. Now I am not an expert knitter. I have knitted for years but am not very good at following a pattern or doing more than basic knit and purl stitches. I don't even really know how to change colors or do anything too fancy. So I did not try any of these patterns, but love how they look. The patterns are translated from Japanese so the patterns themselves look a bit different than the ones Americans are use to seeing. 
The gloves themselves are beautiful. The patterns seem easy enough to follow and very logical. There are twenty-one different patterns in he book.

There are suggestions for different yarns and what to use. The book projects use Japanese yarn but each is broken down to content, weight and style (worseted, sport, etc.). The instructions are easy to follow, but before the actual instructions there pages of specific instructions for various parts of some of the gloves. 

I love the different projects in this book and am thinking my mother will love it. She is an avid knitter and always likes a good pair of fingerless gloves. Her hands often get cold, but she is a crafter so she needs her fingers.

I hope you will check out this great book and get yourself ready for the fall.
