"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

Another FO!

Finally, I finished this pair of gloves for my mom!  I made her a slouchy hat out of the same Berroco Vintage yarn a month or so ago.  My intention was to complete these gloves quickly, but.....things didn't work out that way.  These are not a Christmas gift, just a "because" gift.  Mom's deserve those too!
The pattern is Classy Cabled Gloves by FantasyFlyte Designs. A pay pattern from Ravelry.  It's always so hard for me to pick up a project that I have set aside for some time.  Where was I?  What was I doing?  What did I perhaps do different from the pattern's instructions?  I always wonder how those of you with multiple projects manage to pick things up in midstream and complete them.  I would just struggle too much, I am sure.

Anyway, they are finished now, and hopefully she will enjoy them.  She is really "into" hats right now, and matching gloves are always a good thing.  I hope to make another hat and gloves set - this time in a green Cascade 220 superwash wool for her for Christmas.  Since the Advent Calender is finished (Yipeeeee!!!) there should be sufficient time.  That being my last Christmas project, I am looking forward to some quality spinning time.  It's been awhile......

Those are so lovely. What a lucky Mom, although I'm sure she deserves them. As one who always has multiple projects going, I can attest to the fact that it doesn't always go smoothly and I can spend hours trying to figure out exactly where I was. I'm hoping my new knitting app for my iPad will help keep me more organized. I could just do one project at a time, but that ain't gonna happen!

Your Mom's gloves are gorgeous, Kathy! I am sure she will enjoy them as well as her slouchy hat.

I am like you and usually finish each project before moving on to another. I did make an exception while knitting the two pullovers recently but they were easy enough to pick back up.

They are classically beautiful gloves!
I know what you mean - I have a pair of gloves with 2 fingers done on each that have been in a project bag for 2 years and I dread trying to figure out where I was with them.

They look warm and the neutral color will go with so many things. Love them
