Finished Project: Knit Night Gloves

Well, I finished the first of the Knit Night Gloves back in February and I only just now got over Second Sock Syndrome (or Second Glove in this case) and finished the second. It turns out the cure was to finish one slipper and be so desperate to avoid doing the matching slipper that I would work on this long-dormant project.

I had one snag… I decided to stay up incredibly late last night to finish the glove, in spite of my migraine. So, there I sat at 3 a.m., pounding migraine, hurriedly finishing this glove while watching The White Queen. I have now learned that early morning hours plus a headache does not equal the best pattern reading. I took “repeat for rows 3-5” to be “repeat 5 times”. So, the second cuff turned out a couple rows longer than on the first glove. I think I’ve basically decided that I can live with the mistake because I honestly don’t want to tink back the entire bind off edge and two rows of stitches. Also, I made these gloves and the matching hat because I bought the yarn on a very special vacation to New Orleans and really wanted to use it up. I’m not much on wearing hats or gloves (especially fingerless ones), but the memories from that vacation make the yarn too precious to give away, so I will most likely end up keeping them and not actually wearing them. Basically what I’m saying is, it really doesn’t matter that they don’t match.

The yarn is Malabrigo Rios in Zarzamora and the pattern is Knit Night Gloves.
