Bloomsbury Gauntlets by Kristin Nicholas
Me, of course!
Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
Nashua Handknits Julia

I am so excited to knit these Bloomsbury Gauntlets and then embroider them!

I selected my color palette to compliment my Anthropologie floral print wool shawl by Moksha.

“Practice makes perfect”, right?

I am knitting the small size and the cuff seems very bulky on me. I re-read the pattern and I think I was supposed to use smaller needles on the solid rows and only the larger needles on the 2 color Fair Isle portion??? This is not that clearly written out in the pattern…so beware.

So good bye bulky cuff…I am starting over on these and knitting the entire pattern on #5’s except for the sculpted edging on #7’s.

This is my first time knitting real gloves (other than fingerless).
