Notes

Finally finished first glove. This project has taken much longer than expected. Getting the tension even with this yarn is very difficult.

Overall, not happy with this project. Had hubby try it on and at least it fits.

Almost finished with second glove. Need to finish the convertible top and finish the thumb.

Finished second glove.

Just have to add the buttons.

Almost had a heart attack when I saw I had two right hand gloves. Turns out one was inside out due to me weaving in some ends.

Ended up getting the sides mixed up and wove in one end on the front side. Fortunately, I was able to undue it and weave in the ends in the back side.

Ugh. Finished.

Hope hubby likes these gloves as much as I dislike them. If this project wasn’t for the Ravellenics, I would frogged it before I finished the first glove.

A note, if I ever try this pattern again.

Use three needles instead of four. That way the K2 section of the rib won’t fall on different needles.
