Finished Gloves

In September I started knitting a pair of fingerless gloves for my husband. After some fumbling I finally finished them! I used the same number of stitches for both of them but one of them is slightly tighter than the other. My guess is that I haven’t found a consistent rhythm or feel for tension yet.

The yarn is called Blackstone Tweed Chunky; a soft blend of wool, angora rabbit and mohair (purchased from a local shop called Wabi Sabi). The gloves are quite cozy and I hope he will get a lot of use out of them. He works mostly outside and mittens are just too bulky if you need to use your hands for anything. I wear mine under mittens when I am taking winter photographs.

What about you: Are you knitting anything right now? Do you have any tips for this beginner?
