Ravelry tells me I started these gloves in January. It’s May and I just recently finished them, so they’ve been on the needles a while. I’d say they’re a little out of season for mid May but it’s still frequently in the sixties and my hands get chilly.

Pattern: Phalangees, from a recent Knitty. With full fingers, obviously.
Yarn: Recycled cashmere and Navajo plied recycled silk
Needles: US 2/whatever that is in mm
Mods: Full fingers, no colorwork, and I fucked up the thumb, so that’s different.

I quite like this method for fingers. I had significantly less gapping than usual. I should have followed the rest of the pattern a little less though. They’re a bit long for my hands, but that’s probably more to do with my row gauge (which I didn’t check) than the pattern.

The yarn is, of course, recycled and I have a ton more of it. Maybe I’ll make some matching accessories. I’ll probably make this pattern again for gloves buy with half fingers and a removable mitten top, since mittens are supposed to be warmer than gloves.
