Purple gloves

gloves2My neighbor asked me to make her a pair of warm gloves and they had to be purple. It was a challenge to make them. First they had to match a favorite scarf, but purple is a difficult color. So I lend the scarf and went to a wool shop. The lady in the shop advised me to buy  two different kinds of yarns, that matched the scarf. At home me and my neighbor Ana choose the  alpaca yarn. Then I had to find a pattern that matched the yarn. I also didn’t want to knit on four needles or circulair needles. But most patterns are knitted in the round. Luckily my Sister in Law found me a sirdar pattern of gloves knitted with two needles and with the same size my yarn needed. So I started knitting and within a week the gloves were ready. Afterwards a few things could be better. Like the thumb and the fingertips, but that is for a second pair of gloves. For more details visit my ravelry page!
