FO: Aubergine Gauntlets

FO: Aubergine Gauntlets
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca DK
Needles: 4.0 mm/ US 6 Bamboo DPNs

Loved the yarn and the pattern.  The result is surprisingly warm!  I was knitting while wearing them today, and they kept my fingers toasty warm.  Usually I have to grab a cup of tea to hold onto to unfreeze my fingers after an hour of knitting!

I have been wanting to make these for my friend Jess for about a year.  However, I this was my first pair of fingerless gloves, and I don't like to gift my first try at something, since I haven't worked out all the kinks and gotten the hang of things.  For example, the first of these gauntlets I knitted has a sloppy thumb, but I worked it out on the second one.  Jess, the next pair is for you!

This was a speedy quick project.  Each one knitted up in less than 2 hours-- a great instant gratification project.

Have a great week!
