{new pattern} Kenmare Lace Fingerless Gloves

Remember when I said I was busy? It's a very happy kind of busy that results in even more finalized patterns.


Delicate, yet chic. The Kenmare Lace Fingerless Gloves are so versatile. One skein makes a pair and the easy all over lace pattern makes them a quick knit.

Shown above in the swoon-worthy Plucky Knitter Cashmere, these mitts are perfect for that one irresistible luxury skein splurge.

An even quicker knit, a worsted weight version is included in the pattern. Need a gift for a teacher or another special someone? They would be thrilled with a pair of these fingerless gloves as an expression of your heartfelt gratitude.

I knew I had to get pictures of the all the test knits (thanks again Tracey for test knitting these!) to show you how simple lace shines in a variety of yarns and looks gorgeous in both variegated and solid colors.


The fabulous photos are by Tricia Soto, aka Cheekyattitude aka our Irish Girlie Knits assistant! The one above is probably one of my faves!
