WIP Wednesday: Pomatomus Fingerless Gloves and Shapely Tank

Back from business trip to San Francisco where I squeezed in a visit to Artfibers - more about that later.

I have to more WIPs to add this week.

Pomatomus Opera Length Fingerless Gloves, inspired by Cookie A's Pomatomus Sock Pattern.
Pomatomus Opera Length Fingerless Gloves
I'm using Sundara Sock Yarn, "Black over Plum" colorway. I have two more rows to finish on one of the thumbs; the other is finished except the weaving. Guess I don't feel much pressure to finish since it's too warm to wear them.

Shapely Tank, from White Lies Designs.

The yarn is from School Products. All done except the seaming. I made this before I began slipping the first stitch at the beginning of every row. Therefore the seams will be hard to match up using my favorite backstitch. That means I will have to use the mattress stitch. Yuck. O.

I haven't had time to get back to the white sleeveless turtleneck. But after some brain storming with Olga and advice from Sahara, I've decided not to frog it, but will re-do it another way. Involving scissors. More on that later too.


  1. I am really liking the gloves and have yet to try Sundara's yarn. You are making me itch for some!

    SO can't wait to see your pics from the San Fran yarn shop!


    Please enlightening me on the backstitch seaming....regretfully I do mattress!!! :o(

  2. you are NOT cutting it? are you? the thought makes me so nervous!

  3. What a great idea to use the Pomatomus stitch pattern to make some fingerless gloves -- they really look nice. Can you believe it, I've lived in the San Francisco area for 22 years and have never been to Art Fibers. I think that needs to be my summer goal!

  4. I love how you're using that sock pattern on those pretty gloves. And I'm glad you're not frogging that other top; can't wait to see how you fix it.

  5. Hi Ava! Thanks for visiting my blog! The pattern for the slippers was given to me by a secret person (secret-gift-pal) and she or he has asked me not to spread it furher. In about a month i´ll know who my "hemlis" is, and perhaps we can ask again.
    Love your blog! And I´ll be happy to chare any other pattern! Anna
