I started these fingerless gloves as a gift for a friend. I'd been sitting on the yarn and the pattern for about a year. I really like the pattern....until I started working it. Maybe its just the color, but I just am not really liking this. I decided to Just keep going until I realized they will be way too big for her tiny hands even though I went down 2 stitched and two needles sizes. I now have a legitimate excuse to frog the project and start something else. I may attempt these again in a different color for myself at a later time.
