I am done


I just finished my mother's gloves. I have to block them but then they will be all done. I cant wait til Christmas to give them to her so Mother's Day is around the corner and afterall with the weather we had last weekend with the white stuff she may still have a need for them. I have picked out the yarn for my pair and will start on them this week.

I had to go up to size one's. I barely made it with one skein of each color, I bought two of each just in case, so now I have yarn for something else.

Karen, thanks again for designing and sharing these beautiful gloves. The pattern is very well written and such a joy to knit. Until my next pair, I cant wait to see the rest of your gloves.

Congrats, Abby. Your gloves are wonderful and I'm sure your mother will love them.

Way to go, Abby!
Definitely give them for Mother's Day - strick while the iron is hot, and she can display and admire them until she needs to wear them.
I'm thinking I need a little hand-shaped glove stand, to display these as textiles in my house...
