FO: Fetching Gloves

The aggressive blocking seems to have worked!

The gloves seem be relatively well behaved, curling at the bottom only very slightly. They’ve been taken out and about (by which I mean to the coffee shop. They went to the coffee shop.) and still hold their shape quite nicely.

Modelled by Pia – thanks Pia!

The bottom still curls up a bit, which is likely a result of my cast-on/knitting a round before joining. Next time I’ll be sure to do a cast on that naturally lies flatter.

Time to update the project page…

In the end the pattern won me over. They are fetching, and I probably will knit them again as these ones are to be raffled off. Notes for next time: flatter cast on and add a thumb gusset for better fit.
