Thank you so very much, Beth, for this gansey pattern! You are so very generous to us.
Thank you for your wonderful gansey book, too!
I’m “knitting ON” since 7 years old and am now a Great-Grandmother!
Love to you, Jan
Wonderful to hear from you Jan. I am glad if you like the pattern.
I have searched in numerous books for a pattern for fingerless gloves in a thickish yarn….and then I came across yours. Wow, how wonderful, thank you. I would like to subscribe to your site if possible. Please advise how to. I am an addicted knitter, love it so much. I have rather bad arthritis and knitting is about all I can do these days…..so I look forward to further communication. I would love to hear from other keen knitters….it’s a wonderful world.

Thank you for the pattern for Gansey Fingerless Mitts.
You are so very welcome!
Beth, I’m always drawn to the photo you use as a header, you in your green sweater, with a knitting project in your hands. It speaks volumes about the work you do and share with us. I’m so sorry to miss your class this coming weekend at Aylin’s Woolgatherer; my excuse is that I’ll be attending a silent retreat. Be assured I will pray for you and for all present, that your yarns be luscious, your time together inspiring and collegial, and your knitted projects pleasing. Lastly, what an excellent article in your current newsletter, about sewing buttons on sweaters! I use these techniques myself. A variation was the time I basted a satin ribbon on the inside of the button placket, to provide a sturdy and pretty backing for the buttons. The vest I did this on won a blue ribbon at the county fair, and the judge noted that she “loved” the ribbon.
Hi Margaret! SO nice to hear from you. Thanks for your kind words about my header. A silent retreat sounds wonderful! Enjoy! And I like your comment about using a ribbon on the inside of the buttonband. I remember sweaters being made in that way long ago. Congrats on your blue ribbon!
Thank you for this generous gift of these mitts. I need to make several pair, all different, and these will work perfectly. I especially like the slant at the pinkie edge.
You are so welcome, Sally. Happy knitting!
I enjoy your newsletters a lot but sometines I feel tired just reading your schedule.
Is there any way to copy this month’s free pattern without the rest of the pages???
That’s a good question, for which I don’t have an answer! Can you copy and paste? I guess I need to figure out how to include PDFs on my blog… Thanks for reading!
