Two Finished Objects

Here is the left glove, finished. I decided to take a short glove break and finished a washcloth I had started before Thanksgiving. The washcloth ddn't turn out square, like I expected. I made it exactly according to the pattern:
I guess it doesn't really matter. It's just a washcloth.
I suppose I will start the right glove today sometime.

Finished Hat

This is the hat that I designed and knitted for my son, who is modeling it. The motif is modeled from his personal website logo. He said he likes it and I believe him. :) Who wouldn't believe that face?!

I'm on the index finger of the first glove. There's only the thumb after that.

First Glove

This is the first glove I've ever tried to make. A friend requested I make her a pair of gloves to match a scarf she already has. Mittens and/or fingerless gloves just wouldn't do. They have to have fingers and the cuff needs to be extra long to keep her wrists warm. (This is my hand.) I hope they're not going to be too big for her.

I'm using the pattern on page 208 of Big Book of Knitting by Katharina Buss. This is a great book; it has a lot of helpful information in it.
