my purple hands
by kelerabeus Follow

This winter I made myself a new coat and it have sleeves that are on a shorter side, so immediately after finishing the coat I realized that I'm gonna need some elbow length gloves if I want it to be a functional winter outerwear. So i knitted them :)

I didn't need any pattern since I wanted the gloves to be simple. I started with a few rows of garter stitch as a ribbing, and the rest is knitted in a stockinette stitch. Very basic. I already had the yarn in my stash and it was in a perfect color! I lost the label but if I remember correctly it's a mix of wool and acrylic, very light and with a nice halo. I'm very happy with the result, they fit like a glove :)

    Thank you so much! Those are some of my favorite colors, although I kinda say that for all colors so maybe it's not such a strong statement :)
