FO: Knotty gloves

Well – the missing ball of Spice Twinkle Cat still hasn’t turned up, but I did finish the second glove from the second skein, yesterday.

The second skein is a touch darker and more variegated than the first – such is the nature of hand-dyed yarns – but not enough so that I’m bothered by it. Part of the reason that I chose this yarn is because it would look nice, not only with my light camel-coloured wool coat…

… but also a couple of my favourite hats.

I love hats almost as much as I love shoes. The above pretty wool and silk cloche was bought on a work trip in Niagara-on-the-Lake a few years ago.

And this more fanciful one was a birthday gift from Mom a couple years ago. It was made by a local artisan, and I think my humble stitchwork is a fitting compliment.

And these gloves are also my last knit of 2019. (We all know I won’t be finishing the poncho before the end off the year!). I can’t wait to see what knits 2020 brings.

    Congrats on the finish! They look great.
    I find that when I make something that has to be a pair that the second one bothers me if the color is off-until I wear them. I noticed recently on my Ravelry page that I complain a lot about it but when I have them on I never even think about it.

    Those gloves are just so beautiful!!! What an awesome combination with your coat and hats. You look so chic and stylish in the photo wearing the hat. (Both of those hats are drool worthy.)
