I have done something very foolish. I have started another project. I have so many projects on the go, scarves, bags, cushion covers, gloves…in fact I have two bags full of them and a box!
But these fingerless gloves are so pretty! I made a pair for a friend last year, using up some small balls of wool that I was given. I didn’t have enough to make any more, but really wanted to and so after a long hunt to find out what the original wool was (I didn’t have the labels for it either, just a small amount of each), I have finally got what I need to remake these gloves!
What do you think? Are they worth putting my other projects on hold for a bit longer?
There are two sorts of wool in these gloves. One is a pink wool blend as you can see in the photo, it’s a lovely raspberry colour. And the other is mohair, and this was the one that it was hard to track down as it’s discontinued. But I found a lady who used to run a wool shop and was selling off her old stock, and she sold me several balls of it. It’s so gorgeous, it changes colour throughout, and has pink, orange, green and a steel grey/blue in it. It goes perfectly with the raspberry pink and is also perfect for this time of year, really autumnal and warm!
I often use two wools together to create an effect, and I am so delighted with how these look together!
I will get back to my other WIPs when these are done, promise…
