Finally I caved. Two afternoons, two gloves done!
Speaking of stuff on the needles, as well as a sample shawl using my handspun, I have another not-my-design pattern in progress at the moment too. I remembered this week I had promised my sister I would make sleeveless tops for each of my two nephews, and if I don’t make them soon they won’t need pullovers, they’ll need swimwear! This is a pattern called Kidding Around from Cygnet yarns which I found in a back issue of Simply Knitting magazine.
