Happy Easter everyone!  The weather was perfect today to photograph my latest finished project (and I finally remembered to bring them home).  These are exactly what I was looking for as the Chicago weather goes wonky for the next month or two.

I’m not a huge fan of the afterthought thumb so I will probably avoid that in the future.  It’s easy to knit but not as comfortable to wear.  The biggest surprise was the Vikkel Braid.  I’m in love with this technique.  I will be keeping this in mind on new projects to give them a little extra something.

The photo is actually of my second glove after I made some tweaks. I decreased 4 stitches immediately after the Vikkel Braid for a better fit on the finger ribbing.  I also kept the same color for the entire thumb instead of casting off with a contrast color.  Lastly, you can’t see it well but I did end up cutting & re-starting more ends instead of carrying the yarn up for a neater beginning/end of round transition.

P.S. The tea in my mug is Argo Tea’s green tea ginger twist.  Yummy, and all gone now.
