My goal was to finish the glove by the end of the weekend but I was so close that I finished it Tuesday night before leaving to visit family for Thanksgiving.  We had some freezing rain on the trip so I was happy to have these with me!

The second glove went better than the first, especially the fingers.  I picked up a lot more stitches between the fingers and then decreased in the following rounds to get back to the right count.  That eliminated the gaps between fingers really well.  The instructions for the thumb had similar extra stitches/decrease pattern but I think all the fingers need this.

The yarn is incredibly soft and feels amazing.  The downside is that it’s already got some fuzziness just from a long weekend of wearing and it does stretch out more than I’d like.  I haven’t picked out my next project yet but I’m thinking some fair isle gloves might be a good choice.  I really loved my first pair of knitted gloves so I’m going to look for something similar.
