Gloves are done

Here are my finished gloves. I desided to do half fingers. Like this my hands won't be so cold and I can still pick up things. I absolutely love the braid in it. I wish it would have come out a little better on the picture, but unfortunately I can't snap a picture of both of my hands myself.








Both gloves weigh 56 gr and I used 3 mm needles. I guess with a little shorter cuffs one pack of yarn would have been enough. I'm surprised how fast they went. The braid makes them look fancy and the ribbing makes them snug but not tight at all. They are going to be my favorites, well, ok, between those, some store bought ones and some made of rabbit fur there is not much to choose from, I guess.

Those are absolutely gorgeous, Angelika! How DID you take that picture? Were you balancing the camera between your chin and shoulder? Ha ha.

Thanks soooo much for the pictures of your knitting machine. I'm so amazed at what it and you can do! Maybe someday.... A girl can dream, right?

They look absolutely wonderful, and I think you made the perfect length. Thanks for the link to the pattern -- it's now on my ever-growing "to do" list. :-)

Kuckuck! Wollte auch mal wieder wás von mir hören lassen. Sind toll geworden, die Handschuhe! Uff, ich bin froh, daß die Ladenfete hinter mir ist. Hatte in den zwei Tagen nahezu zwei Monatsverdienste..... Was will man mehr? Wenn du da gewesen wärest, wären es vielleicht drei geworden... *hüstel*.
LG Karin
