So even though I've been in my winter slump, where I mostly want to cuddle up in front of the TV, I managed to finally finish these gorgeous gloves.
If you've been following me on instagram, you'll know I've been working on them since before November. And it's not that they take forever; they're pretty simple after all.
It's more that I had to work and rework the pattern and then figure out the proper size because I can't just make something for FUN, you guys.
But these were a lot of fun. I love the design, and it was a challenge to figure out how to convert the chevrons to working in the round. (And weirdly, I was trying to figure it out for awhile. I took these on a plane ride, thinking I'd have hours to really study it when it just clicked before we even left the runway. So simple, yet so hard.)
(My weird head shot pose - but the gloves are so nice!)
I had a gorgeous photo shoot all planned out in my head, but the sun didn't come out for days (weeks?) and then this past weekend, when the sun DID make an appearance, the real feel temperature was -13F (-25C). I wasn't going anywhere.
You can check out my Ravelry page here, and if you're feeling the chevron like me, you can use the coupon code WARMMEUP until February 25 to download them for free! Definitely let me know if you make them because I can't wait to see!
Hopefully you guys had a much warmer weekend than I did, and you enjoyed your Valentine's Day!
