Fingerless Gloves completed and gorgeous.

Here are the completed Fingerless Gloves, looking gorgeous on their gorgeous new owner.  I’m in the process of typing up the instructions at the moment.  I learnt a few new skills with these –  Knitting into the back of the second stitch, and knitting fingers.  There’s always something new to learn in this game. 🙂

I hope to have the pattern out in the next few days.  I’m glad there’s some winter left for them to be worn in!
My next venture is a scarf knitted in a Mosaic stitch.  This is a pattern where two colours are used, but only one on each row.  By slipping stitches, or some other method, it looks like two colours are used on the one row, when only one has been used.  The particular stitch I’m using doesn’t used slipped stitches, but knit into the stitch below.  This effectively drops a stitch to mix the colours.  It’s easier than I thought it would be.  It’s lots of fun having so many stitch types to try.  This is producing a fantastically light, soft fabric that will be great for a scarf.
