I'm Japanese who can't speak English very well, but somehow my husband is Canadian who can't speak Japanese... To improve my English, I try to write about my hobby like knitting and baking in English. I'll use broken English though... please forgive me!

herringbone gloves

It's raining today. It's been a while!
Probably trees must be happy, and I'm happy as well because I don't like summer so much.
I've been knitting herringbone gloves. It's really fun but the pattern was a little bit confusing so that I had to unravel. I've finished a thumb. Actually I finished left glove but I noticed some mistakes and fingers were too long for me. (my hands are small and fingers are short...) I'll make it again. Finally I memorized the pattern so it'll be finished at once.

Then I've started a baby cardigan, Lottie from ROWAN junior. the pattern is St st so it's good for a change when I tire to knit confusing herringbone pattern. This is first time for me to knit a cardigan with English knit book. I don't understand some explaination. I should read a book for begginers who knit sweater.

I usually knit only one thing but I'm thinking of starting ene's scarf next week. Knitting different stuff at the same time is so fun! How come I didn't do that?

Hi, I've been wanting to knit these gloves as well but I can't read Japanese. I know you have to cast on 64 sts and follow the pattern, but how do you do the increases?
