…or, “What I Did Over My Summer Vacation”:
My “Spice Route Gloves” design, knit in 4 shades of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift. Finished palm circumference of 8″, so they’re sized to fit average adult female hand.
Five 25g balls of Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift were used: 2 balls in the (dark) background color, and 1 in each of the other 3 colors.
2 – 25g balls of A = Shetland Black #101
1 – 25g ball of B = Eucalyptus #794
1 – 25g ball of C = Chartreuse #365
1 – 25g ball of D = Ginger #462
2 – 25g balls of A = Mulberry #598
1 – 25g ball of B = Chartreuse #365
1 – 25g ball of C = Orchid #547
1 – 25g ball of D = Rouge #563
Compare the cuffs on the two colorways and you’ll see there’s a tiny bit of optional duplicate stitch embroidery done on Colorway #2.
These gloves are switchable, i.e., you can wear either one on either hand. Yet, the motifs are all placed symmetrically on each side. I’ve adjusted for the varying finger widths by sneaking some extra stitches in along the sidelines. So, it’s still important that you make one “right” glove, one “left” glove…*NOT* two of the same!
Hope you like ‘em!
