I saw these gloves from the last issue of Knitty, and needed them so bad it hurt! You have no idea the trouble i went to to get nice colours of Noro (cant get Koigu where i live), it took about 6 weeks to find the right colours. And here they are. BTW the photos make my arms look chinkier than they really ae LOL!

More details are being updated on my blog as I speak.

well done!  They're really cute and the color is great!  My only question is, is that much grafting really easier than knitting on dpns?  I guess it might just be a matter of opinion.  Was the finishing difficult?

My toes are cold.

The grafting didnt take very long (i've never made gloves before Grin), it was only 7-16 stitches per finger to graft anyway. I dont know how you would knit them on DPNs, you might have to use a different pattern. I am one of those knittas who like instant gratification, and when i saw i had to graft my heart sank. Once i actually did it, it wasnt so bad - i've finished another pair last night in a different colourway (teal and magenta). The crochet edging around the 'hole' took 5 secs, max. The only thing is that they are quite thick between the fingers - thats the only problem with them i think  Wink.

Those look delicious. The colours, the pattern. Awesome choice. Really want a pair of those now. Goood job! Cheesy (pity about the thick between the finger thing Sad)
