...fingerless gloves !

Remember this?  Polwarth

I knew this yarn was compromised so I thought I would knit up something smallish and quick, just so I could work with it and get a feel for how ill-plied yarn handles.   I chose this really fun AND quick pattern for fingerless gloves from Ravelry. 
I knit the first glove.  
I knit the second glove.  Hmmm.
I knit a third glove.  Well!!!
I knit a fourth glove.  For cryin' out loud!
Four gloves~four different sizes. Honest!  Same needles same person knitting ~ different sizes.
This is what happens when the yarn is very inconsistent, skinny in parts and fatter in other parts.
It gives me a good goal to reach for~consistent spinning hopefully will result in consistent knitting.  
So the two smaller sized gloves are M's and the two larger ones are mine.  I wear mine at work when it gets a little too chilly.  I type all day and I gotta keep my digits warm!   Isn't it ironic that fingerless gloves can keep your fingers warm?

  1. Those gloves are beautiful! You were describing my hand spun yarn! Yours looks very consistent to me! Mine is truly thick and thin. If I ever get consistency in my hand spun yarn, I will blog about it for sure!
