My Faded Fingerless Gloves are finished! They practically flew off the needles!
Pattern: Fingerless Gloves by Cheryl Goyer
Needles: US 5s
Yarn: One Twisted Lavish DK in Chaotic Nuetral and Anzula Ava in Raspberry
Mods: added a fading sequence from Andrea Mowry’s Free Your fade Shawl
I didn’t get my yarn measured exactly in half. So in the second glove I did not have enough grey to make the full cuff and complete the full fade sequence. I knew I was in yarn chicken territory so I altered it on the fly. They definitely don’t match but I honestly don’t care. I used 90 yards of the Lavish (grey) and 73 yards of the Anzula (pink). This used up every last inch of the grey and left a small ball of the pink to put in my memory blanket.
I didn’t manage to snag a photo of the gloves with the coordinating shawl. Perhaps when Spring gets into full swing around here I can get some decent outdoor photos? This project just made me super happy to both have a matching peice and to use up some golden skeins of yarn to the very last bit!
I didn’t even notice that they don’t match! They’re lovely 🙂
They look great! They do match – same yarns, same look 🙂
It looks great
