Well, it took me some time to make and even more time to post the result - but here is the left (green) glove:
It is way smaller than the blue one, both in circumference (I accidentally cast on 44 instead of 48 stitches) as in length of the fingers... Oh, and I knitted less rows after the ribbing and before I started increasing for the thumb.
But it fits, just differently than the blue one. The blue is a bit oversized while the green is quite slim fitted But I hardly ever keep my hands still, so nobody will notice
BTW, here is what the fingers look like when one uses the method of k2tog for the last round and then just draw the yarn through the stitches which are left:
I think the trick to knitting gloves is to "just do". And it might be a good idea to knit 3 gloves: one to just try it all out on and then 2 others to knit for use :knitting: It's quite important to keep track of what you're doing though - I really missed out on that, loosing count of the rounds for the fingers and such... :wall: I swear, even when I try to focus on it, my mind just wonders
BTW, I still have the "hole problem", but I just sew them up. I tried using that wonderful method of fastening the stitches, but somehow my fastener kept loosing its way :wall: I need a new one...
BTW2 For more photos of the process, check the photobucket album where these pictures are from, I made it public.
Here is a total of what I made of this yarn:
Now I just have to wait for winter. It's February and there hasn't been any snow yet! :nails: The ice on the water isn't even strong enough to hold the ducks. What is a winter when one cannot even skate?!
