I made a pair of fingerless gloves for my friend who lives in Dublin. I had no idea what size to choose and I picked the “one size fits all” pattern. It’s not exactly true – these gloves are definitely too big for me – but I think it’s a good average size and would indeed be right for most people. It was a very quick and easy project, and once the gloves were ready, I still had more than a half skein left (I used a skein of ruby yarn from my Wollinn festival haul).
This was a great opportunity to knit another pair, this time for myself, and here they are!
They look darker on the photo because sunny days are rarity now and the picture was taken on one of the typical dark and rainy November days. I’ve been wearing them a lot in the last week and they are perfect for this weather; they keep my hands warm and cosy. The yarn has some cashmere content (about 10%) and it’s really soft and nice.
I’ve been also working on a new jumper for several weeks now, but with my shoulder still in pain, my knitting had to slow down a bit too. And tomorrow I’m going to Poland for a week (and I’m not taking any projects with me) so I will knit the remaining sleeve when I’m back to Dublin.
