Annemor #17

I constructed the Annemor #17 Glove Pattern from SELBUVOTTER: Biography of a Knitting Tradition by Terri Shea. Color work is easier than I thought, and these worked up quickly. I think that these will be a great gift for the upcoming year.

I knit these gloves on size 1 (2.5 mm) DPN with Palette fingering weight yarn from KnitPicks (MC - black, CC - cream), consumed about 50% of the yarn. I took the finished gloves and remaining yarn into work to weight them (my lab-mates thought this was hysterical!) Of the 100g total yarn that I started with (this is approximate, as I did not weigh the balls to start), I have 20.6g Cream and 28.4g black remaining. The gloves weigh 47.6 g. I ALMOST have enough yarn to make another pair of gloves, but I don't think that I'd risk it with just these two colors. I would use the black as a CC with another main color, though.

I may be motivated to weigh my yarn before starting projects now!
