Here we go again...gloves with fingers

I just can't give up on my dream of knitting gloves on a loom so I am at it again. This time I am trying to do the whole project on a single loom. I am working on the pattern for the one loom mittens and I am hoping to apply this technique to my glove pattern. So far the blue Knifty Knitter loom is way too big for my hand, but that is just logistics, I can always go to one of my smaller and finer looms once I have the concept down. I am keeping my fingers crossed on this one. I just can't seem to get the idea out of my head that it can be done!

Tip: use twisty ties for thrifty method of marking your loom to help you keep track of either decreases or increases in your loom knitting projects. I know, I know, you are going to start thinking I have stock in the Twisty Tie Corp, but I don't, I just have lots of them on hand and they work so well since they are easily bent and lightweight.

An idea would be to get the children and adult thumb loom from and attaching the pre-made fingers and thumbs to the base of the "gloves" , I think there are instructions for attachement at I use a nice Wonderloom from the same site for more variety of sizes...
