Ta Da!

I said I'd post pictures, I'm posting pictures. I made these for one of Dan's friends. I've met her only twice now, but these were quick and she lost or damaged hers right after I met her. Dan adores her so much, I thought a pair of fingerless gloves would be a nice gesture.

They are made from some Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran I had in my stash. This is a great yarn to work with. I hadn't yet worked with a cabled yarn. I like the way it knit up very much. I still have a bunch of the purple. Not enough for another pair, but maybe a hat.

You'll notice in the second picture that the cables don't quite match. I meant for the cable to be centered, but since I was making the pattern up as I went, it ended up a bit off. When I tried to correct for the right glove, it was even more off-centered. Oh no. Sometimes I get stubborn; I didn't fix it. I rather like the way the right glove works, though. The cable lines up with the first finger, which looks nice. More interesting than a cable up the middle.
