Yes, I know it sounds strange in the middle of the Summer, but I am! *^v^*
Last night I finished the second Norwegian Glove.
Today's weather is cold, rainy and gloomy so I felt tempted to wear them while shopping... *^v^* (No, I left them at home, but I wore a thick cardigan, Summer suddenly decided to have a hiccup here, blah...)
Pattern: Norwegian Gloves from the famous Japanese knitting book many bloggers bought from www.yesasia.com, Hokuou no knit komonotachi by Shimada Toshiyuki (available only in Japanese)
Yarn: Wendy's Merino Double Knit, 1 skein of white (I was lucky to have some of this yarn left from the previous project because there wasn't enough for the last two fingers!) and Yarn Art Merino De Luxe (50% merino wool, 50% acrylic) 1 skein of maroon (still a lot was left)
Needles: 3 mm dpns
To sum up: I loved this project, I love Fair Isle knitting (in projects like socks or gloves, I haven't tried anything bigger yet), knitting separate fingers is boring, so next time I'll knit mittens! *^v^*
Okay, here is a quick contest: spot the difference between the two gloves!
No prizes this time, it's just for fun (I spotted it when I finished weaving in the ends last night and put both gloves next to each other...). ^^
EDIT: Yes, you are right! I cast on differently, with white on a thumb in the first glove and red on a thumb in the second one... ^^
