How To Make a Great Thumb Hole

So I am working on the Treads gloves and just got past the  part with slipping the 11 stitches for the thumb hole onto a piece of scrap yarn and I am working on the last part of the glove before making the fingers. I was looking at blogs this morning and found this photo tutorial of how to do a great thumb hole, so much better than the way I have been doing it. Hope this helps someone out there, sure helped me. Well, now I have to rip back and redo my thumb hole, lol. but it will look much better.. I got this information from . she has some great pictures to show you step by step what to do .. well worth the read.

What I'm Working on

So my new job has really kept me busy and I have had no time to think or breath... but I did want to share with you what I am knitting on while I'm on my lunch break.. The yarn is Berroco Vintage in gray and I am making the Treads gloves from Raverly I saw them made in my local yarn shop and had to have  a pair for work.. The yarn was less than 7 dollors and is acrylic, wood and Nylon & superwash, so they will hold up nicely at work..
The top fall colored yarn is Happy Feet which I can't wait to knit a pair of socks out of :) I love fall and I could not wait to get some fall colors.. Hope everyone has a great week and I will try and post more in the coming days..
