Long time no see - I've been busy with various things and life has been throwing various challenges at me. But... I'm never too busy to stop knitting completely. Today, I present my very first knitted gloves. They were fun to make and are even more fun to wear.

They look great. But they seem to be a challenging pattern for your first pair of gloves! I started to knit a pair of gloves once but only managed to knit one!
My daughter knits lots of them.

I knit a hug into every stitch

Solaris, I glad to see you back I missed your patterns, so many of the gifts I give are from what you post. I haven't tried gloves I have made mitts. Donna

As always, you do such wonderful work. I am very into gloves this year. I think they may have replaced socks for my cleansing of knitting palate in between epic my lace projects. Good to have you back!

Impressive gloves! I love making them, once you get to the fingers, they are almost done. I am tempted to make a pair now instead of finishing my WIP's

Nice looking gloves! I have only attempted gloves once, and finished only one. The fingers got to me on the second.

The closest I've come to gloves is Pop Up Paws with partial finger slots. Your work is beautiful!

Thank you for the kind words I was quite apprehensive about making these in the beginning, because I didn't know what I was up against, but gloves aren't really that hard. But the fingers really required a bit of patience.

They are wonderful!

Do you ever get mixed up about which hand is which, 'cause they are different colors? :-)

Best wishes,

Anna

No... Thankfully, even though there is a right and left one, they still look OK on when I switch the hands.
