Knitter’s Spotlight: Fern Fingerless Gloves by Amanda Lilley

Fern Featured

When you live in New England, you quickly realize that the start of spring, according to the calendar, has nothing to do with the start of spring weather. Designer Amanda Lilley has lived in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire, so I can only imagine she had spring in mind when knitting her beautiful Fern Fingerless Gloves.

The gloves feature a wide rib cuff and a simple slipped stitch pattern knit in the Pea Soup (#4275) shade of Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light – a lively green with a hint of gold that’s perfect for spring. Amanda says she was drawn to the “vibrant color” as she browsed through her LYS.

How did you come up with this design?

I have always found slip stitch patterns very attractive. After making a swatch, it was not long before the idea began to form.

Did you make it for anyone in particular?

Somebody usually comes to mind as I design something. With this pattern it just so happened to be my sister.

What’s your favorite project you’ve ever made? Why?

I have a cabled baby bunting design, which is always a hit with new moms. If I’ve taken the time to knit something, it’s always nice to see someone genuinely loves the finished project.

What’s your favorite thing about knitting?

There are so many wonderful things about knitting. I especially enjoy giving hand knit gifts when someone least expects it. Knitting has been the common bond of so many lasting friendships. I also love the whole process of creating something new. I feel at peace when I am knitting.

Do you have a design you want to share?  Or did you recently finish a project with Berroco yarn?  You can email Ashley: apalumbo@berroco.com or post it to the Berroco Lovers forum in Ravelry.
