So, does Small Girl care that one cuff is 1cm shorter on ribbing than the other? Apparently not, she is over the moon with her new pink gloves and their pink stripes (did I mention that they are pink?). So I shall try to stop obsessing about the fact that I (a) apparently can’t count to 5 and (b) didn’t notice until I was just 4 short rows from the end, with Small Girl hopping up and down in excitement. Frogging was not an option.
Pattern is the truly Adorable Kids Fingerless Gloves from Kiwiyarns Knits. It is all credit to her that these gloves have still ended up more than presentable, despite a litany of schoolgirl errors in my knitting of the second one. Yarn is Rico Superba Mexico. I have mixed feelings – it is very pretty and is without doubt hardwearing. However, it was quite twisty to knit with, and is not quite as soft as I would like. It may get softer on washing. I do have very high hopes for the Trekking sock yarn currently burning a hole in my stash bag, which I think will be perfect for the next pair of these gloves.
