Second Glove Syndrome

I've been working on my first real color work project: Annemor #17 Glove Pattern from SELBUVOTTER: Biography of a Knitting Tradition by Terri Shea. I selected Palette fingering weight yarn from KnitPicks for the project, and it works up so quickly. (I knit the cuff to just below the fingers in an afternoon.)

I discovered a problem: I hate making fingers of gloves. The gloves fit me really well, and they look beautiful. But with each finger, there are more ends to weave in (which I also loathe!). Also, since each finger is identical, I get bored.

Therefore, I still have to finish this second glove. I guarantee that the next projects I select from this book will be mittens before I attempt another glove pair!

  1. It is essential to wear gloves when working if you want to keep your hand from being infected. Purchase the finest leather work gloves from the most reliable online retailer, Work Gearz. For additional information, please see our website.
