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!
