  1. Loving the blog design Margo. The gloves are really very cute and such a lovely colour too!

  2. I do not know what sm or pm mean in the gusset. I have not picked up my needles in a long time, can you explain? I am between a beginner and intermediate knitter. thank-you Leona

    • sm= slip marker (slip marker from left needle to right needle) pm= place marker (place marker to mark the beginning of your round)

  3. I may be over thinking this but i want to be sure as i’m in the process of knitting these.

    As we get to the gusset, when you say “k to the end of the round” does that mean after the previous row with the added stitches that we k to the end, we then k around once moving the markers as needed before the next row where we will add more stitches and it specifies to move markers?
    Or do you mean just to go row by row with added stitches without a fully k round between them.

    Probably over thinking this way too much.

    hi
    I am going to try your pattern, I am an intermediate knitter, I just have a question about the pattern. You have markers in the pattern. I have never used those, how do you do that? Also, you knit every row, but it looks like a stocking stitch pattern, which is knit one and purl one row. Is it a garter stitch pattern or stocking stitch?
