I thought you’d like to see the lovely result, above, that my customer, Andrea, shared on Ravelry.  She knit my “Spice Route Gloves” design to a “T”, but in her own choice of colors.  As a designer, I think it’s a very special thing, to see one of my own designs knit in the same yarn, but in an entirely different colorway.  It’s a little like having my own, brand new baby handed to me, without having to go through pregnancy and labor.  Of course, I LOVE it! Thanks so much for sharing, Andrea!

Nothing makes me happier than seeing someone’s happy result on Ravelry!

If you’d like to see the details on Andrea’s color choices, here’s a link to her project on Ravelry.  And here are my original Spice Route Gloves, from last year:

    Lovely…they are on my to do list, but as mittens instead. We are in Florida right now and knitting mitts seems wrong somehow.

      You think so? That’s funny – I do a lot of my mitten / glove knitting in warm weather, for a couple of reasons: The small projects stay away from my lap, so I don’t overheat. Plus, they help me think of frosty, winter breezes, so at least my thoughts are cool. Hope you have a great visit in FL!

    I love them! I really need to get my knittingskills to the next level. It would be a dream to make those mits. Thanks for shearing! Sandra

    Those are gorgeous! Considering that I still haven’t figured out how to make a glove suitable for a human to wear (maybe a Muppet…), let alone two gloves, I think these are incredible!!!
